Just average

Service was very polished and professional but unfortunately the seafood was very average and overpriced . For the price you would expect much better than what was presented particularly as it's a seafood specialty restaurant , having said that restaurant was full on a cold February night .

This small restaurant serves delicious, fresh seafood. The grilled salmon and mixed grill entrees were both excellent. The platter of crustaceans is as beautifully presented as it is delicious. Great for a business dinner, date night or a family dinner.

High quality fish restaurant. 3-course set menu is good value at 40 euros pp. Cosy atmosphere and very good standard of service. Would recommend a visit.

I'm a seafood lover, I'm a seafood cooker and I come from a fishing family. ordered the fruits de mer platter. Not that impressed. First, why Canadian lobsters? Our native lobsters are far more superior. The welks weren't washed and full of grit and a couple of the mussels were overcooked, meat was stretched across the shell. The oysters were... More

this was recommended to a colleague and he decided we should go there! It was ok, but for me, far too expensive to just be ok. No real faults, just not my type of place! Quite crammed, very busy and with ok service but good food. Unfortunately as I keep saying good food is only part of the experience especially... More

I was there by myself and the impression I got was I was not welcome in the restaurant or that I could not afford it. The menu was just passed to me and before I even placed my order, it was taken away and I am expected to remember what I want to order. To be fair, the food was... More

We celebrated our friends birthday at this wonderful fish restaurant. All dishes and courses were lovely though the oysters and Dover sole were stand out. Great atmosphere and well worth getting a reservation!

Our experience at this restaurant was excellent. The service was excellent, with a genuine interest shown by a number of staff as to how we found the meal. The staff were efficient and friendly. The peanut soup was one of the best soups my partner had eaten anywhere in the world, and the rest of the meal was very good.... More
