Family gathering 12 Dec 15

At least our 5th annual gathering at Man Friday's, and, as ever, the food was excellent. Nina,Tasmin and the team did us proud once again - and they'd opened up especally for us.

Another lovely dinner. Cant fault a thing. Crab and shrimp cocktail to start, which was fantastic and moules mariniere for main. The mussels are beautiful. Man Fridays is definitely the best seafood restaurant in the bay. Staff are very helpful and always willing to go the extra mile. Will return again very soon.

So we booked for our combined birthday and anniversary celebration. Ordered the shared shellfish platter and it was over cooked, cold and very unpleasant. Not what you expect for £55! Only 6 people in the restaurant so no excuses not to get it right. Ended up walking out as a result of dreadful food and service.

We booked late afternoon and got a table for 7pm. The tight staircase could cause access problems for some but this is an absolutely lovely restaurant. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Menu dependent on fish available but they also do some meat dishes. The rack of lamb was outstanding. Cooked to perfection generous servings of vegetables as a side.... More

We booked at short notice for 7pm on a Saturday night and were treated to an excellent meal. The restaurant is upstairs so may not be ideal for the less able. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. The menu is short and highly dependent on availability of the day's catch. Our starters of crab & prawn cocktail and lobster... More

We were recommended to Man Fridays so we visited as part of a birthday celebration. The restaurant is very popular so we were told that booking was necessary. I booked a table for 9.00 and we arrived at about 8.50. It must have been our night since when we were shown to our table it was the best in the... More
