I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.

There is also a al la carte menu

The food is delicious, well presented and quite generous in serving size. The staff are attentive and friendly and you are free to relax and enjoy your meal and the views.
Fish of the day (image JW)
The lamb was perfectly cooked and its juicy sweetness was complemented by the middle eastern flavours of chickpeas and hummus. The market fish was tuna and which went very well with the lemongrass and coconut cream sauce and black rice.
