The boat ride to the restaurant is free. What boat would you choose? Maybe if you had an apartment in the harbour you would have your own boat tied up at the club.IMG_1624 (1024x674)

Our guide recommended a tour around the restaurant to see the back before deciding to eat there.  Imagine the view from the apartment if you were overlooking the restaurant on the water. Maybe the mountain view would be better.
