The food, when we ate there, it was fairly good without being outstanding. The service was acceptable without being memorable. The view, which is it's big selling point, was obscured by people standing outside on the verandah.......some without actually having eaten there.
I also recall being ever so slightly miffed when, having been advised of a strict dress code when we booked, we arrived in the requested attire ( long trousers etc ) on a very warm evening only to discover that most of the other guests wore shorts and casual gear and were far more comfortable. If you must have a dress code then stick to it.
Also, having requested a window table to take full advantage of the view and the water pageant, we were given a table down by the kitchen with precious little view even without those people outside. It was because, they argued , we were only a party of two.That would usually have signalled my immediate departure to an alternative restaurant but there we were : dressed up , hungry , hot and it was 8pm.
Despite Narcoosee's misgivings it does have a certain charm and it's location is great.
Let's hope that the new menu also brings a fresh approach too and it could be a winner.
