Recently revisited Oysters on a busy Friday night. While menu choice is somewhat limited, food is delicious with sublime hidden flavours. We ate fish for both starter and main course and were not disappointed with the monkfish risotto being outstanding. While not usually a dessert person it was hard to pass the Cafe Gourmand which allowed one to choose any... More

We were staying at the Clarion for a few days and had heard good reports of Oysters, which is operated independently of the hotel. From the moment we walked through the door, we got a great welcome and were surprised at how the restaurant had been transformed from breakfast time. It had a really cosy atmosphere. We both chose from... More

Visited Oysters Restaurant with a group of 10 family members ranging in age from 23 to 92 and everyone was thrilled with the food. Each course was beautifully presented and delicious. The service was incredible and made for a very enjoyable family celebration. Looking forward to visiting again soon.

My husband & I had such a delightful meal in oysters. I went for the set menu which was incredibly good value. The best chowder ever. Devine wine & very friendly staff! No rush whatsoever, a thoroughly relaxing & enjoyable evening. There is a very talented chef in this kitchen who just knows how to marry good quality fresh food.
