Shellfish to die for!

I have never had such good shellfish for such a reasonable price. The variety , crab, two half lobsters, shrimps ( large & small),scallops, squid as well as vegetables. A struggle for two persons to get through. Wines list could be a bit better. Do book.

Large servings, fresh seafood .. wait staff seemed not prepared or trained in the arrival process, but we're attentive from then on. Value for money.

Ate here with my wife last night for the first time-amazing! We were advised the shellfish platter for 2 was "substantial" - seafood dishes in the UK are usually overpriced with small portions, at £55 it was extremely reasonable, we struggled to finish it. Probably the best seafood we have had in the UK.... Definitely be back

Their seafood was absolutely delicious, cooked to perfection and wonderfully presented. The atmosphere was very pleasant - great decor with big fishes on the walls. The staff were very friendly and helpful - gave our children a look at the kitchen in action. It's more appropriate for adults than families with children as it is upstairs and there's no space...

We were recommended to try this place and so booked for that night. It is quite small, so booking would be There was plenty of choice on the menu with additional specials on the chalkboards around the room.

My partner and I ate there last night and had a fantastic time. The service was attentive, friendly and not overbearing and the food was fresh and very well cooked. The price worked out to £50 per headwhich included a bottle of wine plus the tip and it was worth every penny.

Tables a little too close together. White wine not chilled shame when you pay £22 a bottle. Service was good. Food ok maybe a little overpriced. Everything was nice just didn't quite hit the mark when you pay over £100 for two.

Slightly hidden up a side alley away from the street and upstairs. Good sea and harbour views for a few tables, including ours. Hard to fault the service, except one minor point when we received only a thimble full of mayonaise, I am sure we could have more upon request. The food was superb, and not just our Fish Platter...

From the outside it looks less appealing than the restaurants around the area, however don't let that put you off. We had a beautiful FRESH seafood platter & a bottle of wine, couldn't finish the platter as it was absolutely huge (finished the wine though) The staff couldn't do enough for us, I would absolutely recommend it to anyone!
