Our Services

At our sea view restaurant, although offering a simple locally inspired cuisine, we pride ourselves in having a high level of quality and please ourselves in often surpassing our guests expectations.
The concept is: simple recipes using the top ingredients available on the island!
We do not have a fixed menu card, as we believe in locally sourcing fresh ingredients and avoid using frozen imported products.

Our restaurant offers a daily changing choice of two 4 course table d’hote menus based on locally sourced ingredients that you will find listed on the blackboard in the restaurant – of course our speciality is seafood.

Please do not hesitate to inform us about your preferences, we are happy to adapt our menu to your personal taste or dietary requirements!

In addition to our daily table d’hote menu we offer snacks, light lunches and specials dinner treats such as mouthwatering seafood platters with grilled lobsters & co.

Our weekly CRAZY MONDAY JAM SESSION has made itself a name beyond the island and attracts talents from near and far.

Instruments are available at the lodge but guests are encouraged to bring their own (that will earn a free drinks!), our resident sound engineer will make sure that the sound is up to standard. Check our Facebook page for special events!
