What a great place for a relaxing evening with friends. Good wines, lovely tapas and a fantastic location looking across the lake, disturbed only by a pair of black swans as the sun slowly set. Wonderful, friendly staff enhance this simple but very popular cafe.

Not 100% sure as I'm not a local, but I would think it is a low speed waterway as there are oyster beds in the inlet. Only saw relatively slow moving cabin craft navigating while we were there.
