Great menu! Always seasonal! My favourite restaurant really hard to beat it! Had Thai mussels to start which were amazing and hake for main course which was beautiful! 10/10 as always! Always book table well in advance as it's so popular!

Yummy! Mainly fish, but a steak option. Do order rare if you mean medium cooked steak, though. Otherwise, especially if a fish lover, book, book, book!

The food was nice but perhaps a bit too simple. There seemed to be an over reliance on butter and herb based sauces on the menu. The chips did not taste homemade at all, and were poor. The food left a greasy after taste in...More
