Great fish....

which is as you would expect ! Nice location on the beach, so on a summers evening it's especially good to sit in a sea viewing position. Lovely service and very nice food of course.

I cannot fault this Restaurant except in its description of its menu..Hence the Fish Pie does not say it contains soft hard boiled eggs. I love fish pie and have never had it with eggs before. I hate eggs..

A party of ten (the maximum accepted by the restaurant) we booked the Private Room (behind the kitchen) and the food was great! Service was good, the only downside was the lack of sound insulation which made for a very noisy meal. Wall hangings are needed to reduce the noise level! Wines are expensive. We compared a bottle Picpoul de... More

Fresh & delicious food, great dessert, nice and attentive customer service. Little advise, please do not book any of the tables on the back, no one want to seat inside of a seafront arch where the luck of sunlight would just spoil the whole thing, especially on a summer day, wait on a English summer day! Bring the sun into... More

Went there for a romantic dinner and it was just the perfect place ! We had a little table upstairs by the window which offers an amazing view. The staff is definitely professional, polite and friendly. They really take care of their customers even if the restaurant is fully booked and take the time to talk with you and double... More

Despite booking a table in advance for lunch on Saturday securing it with my credit card (policy for Saturday so you're locked in to the booking), I was very disappointed when we arrived to be told we'd been allocated one of the worst tables in the house, right in the hot sweaty dark back of the restaurant next to a...

The tastiest oysters I have ever had. The sea bass was superb as was the cod fillet. Great service. I can never get used to the shared table culture, would prefer individual tables but alas the place isn't big enough.
