Food is decent for the price of it. £17 for a lobster with unlimited salad and fries is a good price. First of all , I wasn't a fun of oil on the plate.. I ordered grilled lobster, it was a bit tasteless and the shell was really hard to crack compared to other lobsters i had in the past... More

5 of us went here on Friday evening to celebrate completing our degree, we were shown to a big table in the window where passers by we're peering in as we sat. Someone has said in a previous review that the chairs were low down, they are low and they swivel but they were actually comfy and we managed. Our... More

visited here last night with my husband, as part of his 50th celebrations. We had crab and lobster fishcakes to start and they were lovely. We both had the Steak which was cooked to perfection. Staff very accommodating and friendly and the venue sleek and calming. They even brought out a 'happy birthday' dessert which was a really nice touch.

we love steak, we love lobster so thought we would love this restaurant. Unfortunately the steak was small and overcooked and the lobster was very small. More like burger and langoustine! waiting staff very friendly and got served quickly but the food was a definite disappointment, will not be rushing back.

No nonsense meal in the city and it's such great value. The only thing you really need to choose is how you want the lobster cooked and whether you want any of the starters. Don’t let the simple menu fool you though, the quality of the lobster here is fabulous. Mo and I have been a couple of times and... More

Brilliant concept - choice of steak or lobster with fries and salad, limited choice of nibbles and sides. Simple food, beautifully cooked and presented, very reasonable price. Easy, relaxed, delicious!

Booked a table here for last Saturday night for two. Had heard the place was good but we had a TERRIFIC meal, we decided to try a few of the 'nibbles'/starters to share. The Lobster and Prawn cakes were amazing and the Chicken Frits with the chorizo alioli just as mouth watering. We came away delightfully stuffed but in a... More
