Myself and my husband came hear as I'm a lover of seafood. This is a cosy little place and the staff are very attentive. I like prepping and all the work that comes with seafood, however my husband doesn't so there was food for us both. Very fresh and a good selection.

This is a small seafood restaurant in the piazza next to the Maritime Museum. The service is slick and poilte. I had lunch of Moules Frites. The mussels were local and wonderful. this restaurant is an example of what is missing in many coastal areas of the UK; small. good food, local fish and excellent service.

Most fish soups get a bit overpowering after a while. Their soup just got better and better. Definitly will visit again.
