On an extremely busy Sunday evening we were treated as valued customers , even though we'd turned up on spec pretty late. Service was impeccable throughout and, although a limited menu, the food was the fresh and delicious. We'll be back.

An excellent 'on the spur' visit resulted in an excellent eating experience. The food was very good, Oysters, potted shrimps, Scallops all yummy. Our Waiter, who I suspected may have been the owner was professional, knowledgeable, friendly and witty and helped make the experience even better. The glorious weather meant we ate outside in the courtyard, drinking nicely chilled sauvignon... More

Followed by the most wonderful pork belly and ginger and apple sauce and a rib eye steak. Topped off by sharing a boozy banana pancake. Possibly the best restaurant meal I have ever head. Lovely wine and... More

A nice bistro, not expensive, reasonable food with friendly service. Possibly the best bistro in aldeburgh, but there isn't much choice. Don't really understand the ecstatic reviews, maybe the holiday spirit.
