The restaurant has all the ingredients for success and we went there on a Tripadviser rating. However they were out of mussels, the curry was disappointing but the hake was fine, the service was okay, and the creme brulee good, but we won't hurry back.

We thoroughly enjoyed our return visit to this local gem. Full of atmosphere and serves excellent food. Helpful and friendly staff. Limited but good wine list, mainly local wines. Good value and definitely still worth a visit.

The hake was definitely not fresh (tasted like it was cooked from frozen) This was disappointing because really enjoyed the vegetarian curry and seafood curry here on a previous visit.
