Enjoyed a lovely meal last night. Short wait for a table but worth it. Food arrived quick after ordering. The salt and chilli prawns were amazing. Both had steak for main with a couple of sides. Would defiantly go back

lovely restaurant, good warm atmosphere, we anticipated that it would be very busy and so arrived early and were seated and served extremely quickly. Good value for money, big portions and steaks cooked in a woodfired oven. Staff very courteous.

Yes. They are the same building. The bar is a small traditional pub at the front and facing the harbour. which is connected to the much larger Bistro.
