Lovely meal

Good seafood and a local wine to wash it down with. The staff are very friendly and so efficient. Atmosphere was just right, busy but not as if you felt crowded and was very relaxed. From order to table was quick and the food was well prepared and presented. In high summer parking can be... read more

We visited Aldburgh on a very rainy day last weekend. As we were booked into a local hotel for dinner, bed & breakfast we only wanted a light lunch and shelter from the weather. Friendly welcome, and no problem to order just starter dishes. I had the mixed salmon which was delicious - four different variations of salmon and quite... More

Bistro style, with an emphasis on fish. Very local feel, with good support to area suppliers. Good food, well cooked.

Very good food and service. The staff were very attentive and looked after us during the evening. The gravadlux is second to none, melts in the mouth! The menu was extensive and we struggled to find something we did not like.

Good value wine list, excellent smoked fish from the restaurant's own smokery, attentive staff. Tuna carpaccio was good, halibut was OK. Mainly fish, but chicken, duck and steak for non fish eaters.

We had a nice dinner at the Regatta. I thought the food was better than that at the Lighthouse. Service was charming and attentive. Regatta's menu is built around some good standard fish dishes and they were well executed. The puddings were good too. This is the second time we have eaten at the Regatta and we will definitely return.

A lovely meal where you can select many items on the menu as starters or main courses meaning you can have two starters if you like. The fish is exceptional especially the home smoked salmon Brandon Rost.

We had a wonderful experience on Saturday evening eating at this well run, friendly restaurant during our week long holiday in aldeburgh. We had a table on the first sitting at 5.30pm as we have two young daughters, and we were surprised but pleased to see the restaurant fill up by 6pm! The atmosphere was brilliant. The staff were attentive... More

We ate here last night and it was very busy for a Sunday, even in summer. The service was good but not intrusive, and very smooth service from start to finish. The wine list is excellent and the food was good, could do with a few meat main courses on as there was a lot of fish options and maybe... More
