Visit with wife and decided to try the seafood platter. Not cheap but what a plate. The crab claw was the star which was delicious. Could not believe I finished it as so much fantastic shellfish in the platter. Love a challenge and ate the lot. Well recommended.

Food here is superb. It's not the cheapest, but there is plenty of it. You would have to have a huge appetite to down three courses. We could only manage the main course. The waiter was very friendly and accommodating. The mains are plentiful with three types of potatoe and assorted vegetables. We had not been for a few years... More

Homemade bread to start and a great menu to use from (but not too much choice to get confusing). My partner isn't a great fan of fish...in a seafood restaurant ahem, but was able to have mushrooms to start and chicken as a main. The wine was gorgeous, which is always important! And the waiting staff were excellent, really friendly... More

I am a seafood enthusiast and know my crustaceans. Hence my amazement when I ordered the platter for 2 fruit de mer. It really was massive and the quality was amazing. Every possible variety was included and the freshness and quality were second to none. ALL of this for £57.00. I have paid three times this for equivalent sizes and... More

Truly lovely fish platter, and far too much to finish. My wife had a steak which was equally great and cooked perfectly as she ordered. Great staff who were very happy and attentive and efficient.
