Ate here two nights in a row on a recent trip with family. Really delicious fish - cod loin one night and sea bass the other. Yum yum and melted in the mouth, with great accompanying vegetables. Very reasonably priced and a really good wine list too. Staff were welcoming, knowledgeable and had a lovely sense of fun, which added... More

We found this restaurant by chance but we were so glad we booked to have a meal at this wonderful restaurant. All the staff were so friendly and helpful, the food simply wonderful I had the halibut which was beautiful cooked and my wife had the skate wing which melted in the mouth. The wine was very well priced and... More

Fun and happening restaurant with lively feel, attractive decor and staff. Great tiger prawn tempura, seared tuna risotto, crepes Suzette. Chilean Chardonnay and NLH Sauvingnon Blanc pudding wine. Good wine list at sensible prices. £134 for 4 - OK value.

We spent the most enjoyable and relaxed evening here with our family thanks to the lovely staff as we had a six-month old and a 22 month old with a broken leg with us, always stressful mindful of other diners. Both behaved perfectly but nevertheless we felt most welcome and a fuss was made of the little ones. The food... More

Loved this restaurant. Warm welcome, seemed informal but immense attention to detail. Mainly chose from specials on board and were not disappointed, fabulous fish and delicious puddings. Hard to believe they could send out so many covers so efficiently and cheerfully. Really enjoyed, would happily have come two nights in a row, excellent standard all round.

At the time of our visit the restaurant was full and very very noisy which made conversation very difficult. The food was good but both starter (I had scallops) and main (halibut with bisque and samphire) whilst very tasty was almost cold. We were compensated with two free desserts but overall a disappointing dining experience.

This was our second visit to the Regatta and it was better this time than previously. The waiting staff are attentive but not in your face. The food is well cooked and there's sufficient variety on the menu to keep most people happy. It's a bit pricey, but this is Aldeburgh after all. Not a great choice of drinks if... More

Wonderful meal in the Regatta. This was our forth visit to the restaurant and we try and go at least once during our stay at Aldeburgh. The staff had reserved us the table i had requested and looked after us extremely well. The atmosphere was very relaxing and the there was nice low buzz about the place. Again the food... More
