Excellent seafood

This little restaurant beside the central car park, just opposite the harbour is really good for seafood. Service was a little uneven, but the food was worth the wait.

We arrived at 2.20pm, the place closes at 3, but the waitress assured us there was time. Sat at our table until 2.40 without anyone even coming near us, not even for a drinks order. Decided at that point to go elsewhere. We noticed later the couple on the table next to us had also given up and gone elsewhere.... More

Four of us came for a meal last night before the Rye Bonfire. This was our first visit and certainly won't be the last. Friendly staff, nice atmosphere and great food which wasn't pricey. I had the baked cod which was delicious and beautifully cooked, as were all of the vegetables. We all had something different and all thoroughly enjoyed... More
