We got there at about 9pm and were welcomed into a warm and inviting restaurant, decorated for Christmas and a great atmosphere.

After reading the wonderful reviews about this place and seeing the mouth watering pictures of the lobster platters I took my partner there for dinner... The food was not bad but average at best. I was expecting something more upscale than what we received in terms of presentation and flavour but the biggest let down was the grossly out dated... More

This is the best meal ever, I am glad I went mid week for lunch, as it must get very busy. The food is of the very best, the service is great and it is very friendly, a really wonderful place to eat.

After checking with Tripadvisor and calling the restaurant for parking guidance, we set out for a Sunday lunch with sea views. Blessed with beautiful weather for November, we enjoyed a really great meal on the sea front and would heartily recommend to anyone. The ambience is pleasant and the management/staff are very helpful. Check for yourself......

We visited on a very windy and cold November and was warmly welcomed. Good home made food, fair prices and good service. Would definitely return.

Service is prompt and friendly. Portions are generous and fresh. The food is very tasty. And very generous reasonably priced desserts are available too. All the food is reasonably priced,... More
