Dragged in by hatman who recognised us from using his own beach shack last year. Usual high pressure sales from others to get us in. Worth it having haggled over fresh fish prices. As pretty much everywhere local to this eatery good fresh & bigger portions than at home for far less bucks. Heading back tonight to see hatman. You... More

Went here on the strong recommendation of another couple. Chose a fish, although the price was more than the one we'd enjoyed at a similar nearby restaurant the evening before. However, when it appeared, the fish had not simply been grilled in the way we'd asked but was covered in a strongly flavoured sauce that completely overwhelmed the taste of... More

We decided to come in to this restaurant due to lovely smiley man welcoming people at the entrance named Hat man. He went through the menu with us, suggesting loads of different dishes. We decided to go for the seafood platter which did not disappoint. This was a lovely restaurant, with the nicest waiter (Hatman) I have ever had.

The food was very nice and the elderly man (Hatman) who waited on and attracted customers into the restaurant is fighting a losing battle!!. The curly haired owner who prices up the fish at the entrance is obviously the weak link, he constantly shouts at his staff and throws the fish onto the plate whilst making up a imaginary price...

We decided to eat here as a lovely man with a beard asked us to. He was great. The manager then charged us loads for the seafood. We then went back and again the food and service were great, but the manager was acting shifty.

The fish was fresh and on the display it was so fresh looking, we chose to have a red snapper cooked with lemon, butter and garlic, it was great value and the fish was so tender and beautifully...

We arrived at Sea Queen after a day of surfing and was greeted by a lovely gentleman who the staff called 'Hat Man'. After bringing us our drinks he advised us on what to eat and highly recommended the Keralan spiced prawns which were covered in a delicious crispy batter. We added some rice, a Dahl Makhani and two Nans... More
