A nice fish restaurant.

The Regency ia a very nice fish restaurant which was very busy when we were there. The food quality was good as were the portion sizes. The staff were very busy but had time to to be friendly and there was no rush to vacate the table at the end of the meal. All in all a very nice restaurant... read more

Though this place came in highly recommended by friends, I somehow did not quite love the food we were offered. It was average at best. It might also have been the high price attached to each dish which raised our expectations but it turned out that the increase in price was more due to the excellent location rather than the...

Stopped for a brief visit and glad we did . The menu is extensive and possitively swimming with seafood . This is proper seafood . Unfortunately we only had time enough for starters however the calamari was exceptional , light and crispy and tender . Oh and plenty of it unlike most places where you're lucky if you get 8...

I visited this restaurant, which had been recommended, mid-week to catch up with a friend. Believe me, it's nothing special. The fried cod was very tasty, chips could have been darker in colour and the onion rings were positively anaemic. The desserts were excellent and very generous in size. The staff were a real miserable bunch. The chap I took... More

This is my second visit here in a year. My first visit i reviewed, sadly my second visit was no where near as good. Firstly, i had booked for 11 people to eat months earlier. We rang twice to confirm the booking. On arrival at the restaurant they apologised and said sorry they had put the time down wrong in... More

When at the seaside. Can't miss out on a fish meal. This place does not do takeaway, but the weather being a little nippy we went in and managed to time it just right. We had not booked and soon after being shown to a table the place filled up seems very popular so book if you want to be... More

Great food, fresh and good size portions. Fish Soup was delicious as was the clam pasta plus the battered cod was delicious. Bottle of wine reasonably priced. Service good. Right on sea front. Definitely recommend.

Visited on a Saturday afternoon, during the Easter Bank Holiday weekend. Restaurant was very busy, but waited only around 5 minutes; however, I could imagine you could possibly end up waiting much, much longer. I always find it a good sign, if somewhere is busy; it's normally a sign of a decent restaurant. Good choice of sea food, Oysters, Lobster... More

Definitely slightly above average but not quite very good. If it were possible to mark a half mark i would. The place was busy so we were seated in the restaurant of the adjoining guest house. While i don't think the decor of a place is integral, especially if the food is on point, the place did look like a... More
