On a whim

Walking on the seafront on a Thursday lunch time we saw the sign for the Edge high above us and feeling peckish decided to investigate. We were surprised to find the dining area half-full but were offered a window seat with fabulous views across the bay. We took advantage of the fixed price menu... read more

Our team from work always has an 'end of busy season' dinner at The Edge every year as a special treat. Beautiful, sophisticated atmosphere, always have a great time and never notice the time passing. Have had oysters to start as well as the duck pate in the past. Sea bass with ox tail, potato terrine and shallots was delicious.... More

Had dinner this evening, what a fabulous place, even the ladies room is awesome Wonderful attentive staff, superb food, huge 'nibbles' to start, beautifully cooked steak and the best chips ever, followed by coffee of a standard rarely found in the UK Sadly we could not enjoy the restaurant's superb views as we went in the evening, can't wait to...

Visited here as a “walk in”, difficult to find it at night which may explain why it was practically empty. Service was attentive and efficient without being overbearing and the food was good other than being VERY overpriced. The hazelnut crusted Turbot tasted ONLY of hazelnuts which was a shame but my partner enjoyed the Wild Bass. Small portions but... More

A lovely location with a great view. Unfortunately though, the food is average. I ordered a steak medium-rare, the steak came out medium to well done so I sent it back. I was then brought a new plate (my friends had finished their food by this point) the new plate had a much thinner and smaller piece of meat which... More

Came mid week as a small group of ladies for dinner for my friends birthday.. Place was virtually empty on arrival so when we asked to change table it took some persuading.. Service was ok could have been more slick. Everything seemed to take time and reminding.. If they had been more efficient we could have drank a lot more.... More

My husband booked The Edge as a surprise birthday dinner for me. The service was extremely slow, when our oysters finally arrived they hadn't given us anything to eat them with, just a dish of oysters, no condiments, nothing, so we had to call them back over. Our starters then took an age to arrive, as did our mains. In... More
