Amazing seafood - we went for 6 starters instead of full courses and it was really good. Nice sitting outside in nice weather and very friendly staff. Would definately recommend.

We ate at this place and we were not disappointed at all. The oysters were great and they have a pretty extensive menu so something for everyone one. Good service too!

We arrived without a booking on a rainy evening and were welcomed in. The restaurant was immaculate and service polite, warm and efficient. My husband had a chicken dish and I had the red curry vegetable hotpot. Both were delicious. Highly recommended.

I did not specifically notice, but according to the 'casual menu' there are salad options. However, this is primarily a seafood and steak restaurant, so you might want to contact the restaurant directly to see if you can... More
