Fantastic food

Visited this restaurant last week and we managed to get the last one here and we were not disappointed!! It was honestly one of the nicest fish meals I've had...there was so much flavour! I had the salmon with garlic butter and the hubby had a whole sea bream. The staff were also nice too. Would... read more

Last minute decision to go here as my wife and I were let down by another restaurant. It was the best things that could happen! Staff were lovely and the food was delicious. Really great night there.

Great food and views across the harbour and beach area if you're lucky enough to get a window table however the restaurant area itself including the bathrooms does not reflect the food quality. A dire spruce up and redecoration plan is needed to compete with the local competition and it would be nice to position the tables in away which... More

After a fishing trip wanted to grab some quick food - ordered a small cod and chips which was plenty for Dad and the kids cod bites were proper pieces of cod ideal for 7 year old.

Went here twice. Excellent food. Very friendly staff. Was very busy and we were very lucky to get a table. Would definitely recommend this restaurant but would advise people to book. Would definitely return to this restaurant.

Some of the worst fish and chips you are ever likely to have. I had the usual Cod and chips. Very expensive when you have to throw over half of your dinner away because they were inedible. I'm not sure what the use to fry but it tasted like it was well overdue a change. STAY AWAY people walk to... More

After wandering about very tired and hungry, quite early in the evening, looking for somewhere to eat, we were very happy to find that they had one table available here. Admittedly it was by the bar and in the least scenic position (furthest away from the sea view) but we weren't bothered by this stage and were just glad to... More

Been twice now during our stay and enjoyed food & atmosphere both times. Not too long a wait from evening arrival to seating. All the staff who served (both times) were always pleasant and helpful and the food was good. Staff were also attentive and helpful with our daughter, ensuring her selection & portion size was right for her. Wide... More

Excellent starters, gave misguided hopes for the main course. Really nice tomato soup and braised pork with crackling, very well presented. The mains, well the children's menu gets very expensive when you start adding sides to their choice. Wife's monkfish tail I'm told was superb, my beach burger was local and very tasty. But I had about a ⅓ of... More
