Wandered down the prom from our hotel in search of an evening meal....this place is popular, so worth reserving a table in advance. Cauliflower fritters....a new one to try..delicious. The fresh Jersey crab tacos are also excellent and not too spicy.

We had a wonderful lunch here with excellent service. All the food was first rate. Would definitely recommend but you need to book.

We went for the fish platter for two. By my estimate more than 80% of the platter was batter or other low value components with very little fish or crustacean. I suggest you look elsewhere.

Ridiculously early. Think old people's home, like to shift everyone out by 9pm so don't bother booking after 8.

You can book online or ring... however as it's extremely popular on certain nights.... there is no guarantee of a table when you walk in if you don't book... book to avoid disappointment
