Came here on a busy Easter evening but they managed to fit us in early. Food was lovely, lots of seafood specials. Great service and nice atmosphere. All for a reasonable (not cheap) price.

We visited this restaurant for the first time and was very impressed. The food and service was excellent. The fish soup is one of the best we have ever tasted. It was extremely busy but this did not impact on the quality of food and service. Anita our waitress was brilliant. She was bubbly and very professional. We will definitely... More

The Regatta is somewhere I regularly eat as I know when going here the food and service will be fantastic. This visit was no different. All four of us has a different fish dish and each was high quality and cooked really well! We couldn't fault anything from this visit. Thank you again Regatta!

We eat here regularly and rate it the best restaurant in Aldeburgh. Efficient and friendly service delivering excellent fresh fish as well as other menu staples. Remarkable value for money including wine list. Latest fruit soufflés with home made ice cream are delectable. Good for groups as well as special occasions. Remember to book!

I ordered mussels to start and they were extremely strong smelling and many had a powdery texture – I had to leave most. I have eaten, cooked and even picked mussels off the rocks myself, for over 40 years so know what they should taste of. These were not pleasant. Also, my husband’s fish soup tasted of stock cubes; very... More

Aldeburgh is an informal,relaxed and unspoilt seaside town with a fishing heritage. There are fresh fish stalls on the seashore next to fishing boats and fish and chip shops in the town which seemed very popular on Sunday lunchtime. Continuing this theme is Regatta which was informal, seems to cope with family groups well and decorated in a seaside style-blue... More
