A relaxing evening with great fish dishes

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... read more

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

Always a winner for us when visiting Aldeburgh for the day . A real treat before our 2 hour drive home . Just wish they would open a little earlier for dinner as we often have to eat elsewhere as if we hang around waiting for them to open we get home very late ! We have spoken to other... More

Thank you for your constructive comments.we do open at 6pm but not in the afternoon as we all work split shifts which is pretty tough already and there is not enough trade to warrant two shifts.As for the fish it is a seasonal thing,our clients tend to hit the meat a little harder in the winter and local fish is...

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

Seven of us dined for a double birthday celebration We chopped and changed the options on the menu and the staff never batted an eyelid. Wide menu and very good food

Incredibly friendly staff, fab food and excellent service. We've paid considerably more for much less good fare, so many thanks. We'll be back!

Visited Regatta last week and was satisfied with the balance of choice, quality and price paid (given it is in Aldeburgh High Street). The home made bread was very nice but the sea bass fillet was a bit mingy and was almost certainly a farmed fish as I don't think fishermen are allowed to bring them in that small. I... More

i feel after reading all the great reviews that I am being a bit of a sour puss but feel a bit let down. Flavours of the food were good but were just lacking something. The halibut I was served was dry and over cooked and the salad consisted of a few leaves. If you are saying a salad with... More

This is a favourite of mine to visit whenever in Aldeburgh. The menu has a good selection of seafood options, the ambience is great as is the service. Never lets me down.
