This restaurant came highly recommended, but our experience was as follows. Had booked a table in advance but noticed that 'walk ins' got the nicer positioned tables. Food was overcooked ( fillet steak and the monkish fillets ) and was only lukewarm. A caraf of wine was very overpriced and only worked out as being 2 large glasses of wine.... More

My wife and I walked in for lunch and were given a table with a great sea view. Wine was great and reasonable, well-balanced to go with sea food. The food was great-- starters were brown shrimp served as a pate in a traditional glass jar, while my wife had scallops that she thought were among the best she's had.... More

We had booked a window table in advance and were so touched to see birthday confetti on our reserved table. I was wished happy birthday on arrival from our waitress and from the family at the table next to us. One of... More

Spur of the moment decision to try this restaurant. I am delighted I did, the atmosphere, view and staff are wonderful. They were attentive but not over the top, just the right balance. The food was delicious, I had cod loin with Chorizo crust and roasted veg, so good I didn't want to finish eating. I will definitely be visiting... More

This was such a lovely meal. The four of us all had very different dishes. All were very nice. I can wholly recommend the Cajun pasta (veggie with option to add fish/ chicken). There is a fabulous view from the restaurant as well. We walked in and were given seats however I imagine when the season starts properly this will... More

Went with my partner for seafood and were not disappointed at all. Between us we had a large bowl of mussels in a white wine sauce, nifty little plant pots of sea food- cockles, prawns etc, and the cleanest freshest oysters I've tasted served in ice. Service was great, good value for money considering the quality of the food, and... More
