I have been to The Crown some 4-5 times in past couple of years. If you are planning for a special dinner with your close ones, this should be a good option and specifically the open sitting area. They dont allow kids in the open sitting area, so plan accordingly. The view is lovely, on most days the gentle breeze really adds to the experience. Inside sitting is an option, but then I would rather go somewhere else. On the food - its mostly good. They do have some items on their regular menu which are great and some are on avg or bit below. Its not a very elaborare menu however has something for everyone. Its as pricey as a 4-5 star hotel would be.
