Try the 'specials'..they are!

We enjoyed 2 very nice meals on consecutive nights. OK, it's not the cheapest of places but you get what you pay for and being as the food is excellent, I'd say it is worth every penny and good value for money.

We were curious to eat at this resturaunt as had passed by many times and liked the look of the menu. We were not disappointed. The menu was extensive with impressive specials. We all enjoyed sea food and the children's menu was more ambitious than most. Sam and Victoria made us feel very welcome-we will most definitely be back!

Plenty of fish on the menu but had duck and the chips were great. Good food and excellent service at a very reasonable price £25-£30 for two courses including wine. Don't forget to book otherwise you might be disappointed.

I always choose fish if I can, and Regatta delighted me with the wonderfully generous starter of cod tempura. Perfect. There was a lovely buzz about the place, with lots of diners clearly enjoying themselves. The staff could not have been more attentive. I look forward to our next visit. Soon, I hope.

After 10 years at the opposite end of the country we paid a return visit to Regatta for a wedding anniversary meal and were not disappointed. The restaurant has always had a friendly atmosphere, and despite being extremely busy on a Saturday night, the service was consistent and the food excellent. Mains of scallops, bacon and black pudding, and sea... More

We have found Regatta in Aldeburgh to be a truly lovely restaurant. Yet again the friendly staff made us truly welcome. My Son has a great meal every visit, enjoying sea bass tonight.

We returned to The Regatta after two previous visits on a holiday in Aldeburgh in September, when we decided it was our favourite. We especially saved it for the last night of our holiday and were not disappointed. Atmosphere was relaxed, service was friendly and efficient. Starters were both good (scallops and the smoked salmon), we both had the special... More
