"Great Prawns"
7.3 Cuisine 8 | Service 8 | Atmosphere 6

2 Course meal, start and mains or Mains and Desert, like the idea, European.
Nicely presented Sushi Tuna and Avo starter, delicious and a good portion.
Medium Prawns with the options of chips, rice or salad. We request Hal’s and chips and rice, they were happy to do that. Tasty and well prepared, not overdone, again a good portion. Overall Enjoyed our meal, lacks a bit in atmosphere.
