A sea food lovers paradise

Excellent sea food dishes, a few meat dishes and a single vegetarian dish. If you're using Google Maps to locate this restaurant, the actual location is further down to quay towards the sea.

Went here last Thursday for an anniversary meal, and couldn't ask for any better. Had been recommended by a man in a coffee shop, so decided to check it out. The service was perfect, with a wonderful relaxed atmosphere, and the food was AMAZING. Would go as far to say that it was the best meal I have ever had... More

Why go anywhere else! Although we hadn't booked, we were lucky enough to get a table at this brilliant little restaurant. We were a table of four and, as we couldn't decide what to have we decided to share 6 starters between us - the crab bruschetta and squid were so good we ordered a second portion of each. The...

Sat outside watching the sun set with a glass of chilled wine! bliss! Fish menu looked great but we didn't eat there. They should add a cocktail menu - lovely place to stop and watch the harbour

Thanks for calling by and thanks for your review. Cocktails? Chef is suspicious of any recipe without vegetables or meat somewhere in the ingredients :) More

Lovely lunch. Friendly staff and very welcoming. Really nice chat with the waitress and the chef. We visited here in September last year and found it to be just as good. Very relaxed atmosphere and great food, will return soon! :)xx

Visited trawlers on the quay with a few members of my family. We received a warm welcome from two lovely waitresses, and as it was sunny we opted to sit outside, before ordering we were made aware that we had to pay before we ate if you sat outside the restaurant , which we were happy to do. When we... More

The chef insisted that we paid for our food at the bar before we sat down. I said this was unusual for a 'quality' restaurant and he said its because we might run off without paying......I then explained that my wife has a bad back and she was finding the very saggy worn out chairs (that were outside) were hurting...

Thank you for taking the time to leave such a detailed review. Of course we are disappointed you didn't enjoy your meal. Chef does make a point of talking to customers but it appears you caught him during service when of course his responsibilities are elsewhere. Looking at other reviews before and since it would appear your experience was an... More
