Dinner @ Ishka, Hillarys Boat Harbour

Me and a group of friends went to Ishka last Saturday and it was nice. It's right next to the sea and the environment was great. The crowd was really different there. Slightly higher class people.

We went there slightly earlier to have a beer in the pub at Breakwater. Posh looking place isn't it? :)
Then about 9pm we went up to have our dinner at Ishka.
We were served by a friendly staff. She was really nice and sounded really experienced. She gave us private room as well. Private room really made our day cuz the dinner is actually a farewell dinner for Mira and Khrys. So we definately need a quieter place to have a good chat and good laugh.

We had quite a lot of food that day. It was insanely full and of course costly too. But the food was so yum.

We had some entrees.
