This harbour front bistro is a very busy little spot. Almost everyone wants to sit outside so we were happy that we got seated immediately inside. Quaint little bar with lots of photos and bric-a-brac adorning the walls and ceiling. Drinks ordered and promptly supplied...More

Very friendly service and great selection of wines. We all ate Cote du Boeuf - it is simple but tastes fantastic with the chips and sauces. I am normally a fish eater but every time I come here I never regret choosing this dish !

Get there early if you want to enjoy the good food and atmosphere here. Limited choices based on available fish and standard steaks- good wine list on the blackboard

Ate here twice. The first time was nice though the steak was quite tough. The second time was disappointing. Service very slow, several people served before us. I ordered fillet of turbot and got three small tails that had not been properly de-scaled. The rose...More
