Very busy with a lively atmosphere the menu is varied and all the fish fresh and well cooked. We had a great meal and... read more

I would definately NOT recommend. Please, I implore you not to eat there. A cheap fish and chip shop where we could have got a meal for five pounds would be worlds better than this. This was undoubtedly the worst meal I have ever eaten. I ordered the Crab salad and my daughter ordered the Deep fried seafood platter. And... More

Everyone who visits Brighton must try this seafood restaurant. For mains less than 10 pounds (i.e. seafood risotto and prawn salad), the standard was impeccable and the seafood was very fresh.

The ambience was great and the wine was good. However the food was disappointing. Our lemon sole and halibut were overcooked and the chips were very dry. I would not rush back

We all ordered standard fish and chips which arrived together, except one of our partywho ordered muscles and had quite a wait. The fish was beautiful and fresh, lightly battered, not overly big portion. In Yorkshire (where are from) portion size would be small. The muscles were not great, either over cooked or left waiting on a hot plate and... More

We went when it was very busy. The restaurant was packed. It was very noisy inside. You couldn't hear yourself think, let alone uphold a conversation. We secifically went for a fish and chip meal. Mistake! Both our meals were not very good, however the shellfish coming out of the kitchen looked extremely good.

I recently came in to eat at this restaurant, & very much enjoyed the food and wine. However, i was absolutely appaulled to find out that the floor staff keep absolutely none of their service charge, and that cash tips have to be piled into a jar and distributed evenly between staff. Every table is automatically serviced charge, and can... More

Everything was perfect and like we hadn't eaten enough we went on to have dessert. Again my bread and butter pudding, my husband's Apple pie and custard, my son's... More

My first choice and I recommend it to many friends. It has fresh sea food and the best fish & chips I have tasted. The place is easy to find if you follow trip adviser.

Food was very good, large portions so salad instead of chips may be an idea. Staff were friendly. Good value
