A simply outstanding dining experience - my wife and I both had crab and mango for starters (a small complaint might be that it filled both of us up somewhat spoiling the rest of the meal). I had Monkfish for my main course while my wife had scallops (apparently somewhat gritty) and then she had a desert. With two bottles... More

My wife and I ate here last Saturday, and both agreed this was our best fish meal to date. Superb fish beautifully cooked, quiet surroundings, and great service too. Neil's dark chocolate chip icecream, was, quite simply, to die for. We will be back! Chris & Anne

Really enjoyed our starters and mains - fish was delicious. One small gripe - being British of course we didn't complain at the time and should have - meringue in the otherwise very tasty dessert was a lump of something impossible to chew and consequently inedible!

Superb food - would qualify for 5 stars if there was just something extra to give it some atmosphere, It did strike me as being a very upmarket seaside cafe in style. Cannot fault the quality of the food though.

Once again the quality of the food and service leave Neil's way ahead of other restaurants in the area. Predominantly a fish menu however, tastes that simply satisfy and fish that just melts in your mouth, WOW, you will not be disappointed. It is a fish lovers paradise and I cannot promote this restaurant enough. Book a table and tell... More

Three of us went for the early evening "deal" a couple of weeks ago - order before 7pm and get 20% off the food bill (must order two courses). A warm welcome with excellent food and service - and generous sized portions. Looking forward to the next time!

Excellent food. Great service. Faultless. There is a great selection of dishes and all four of us had superb and well presented food. It all arrived in good time from our helpful and friendly waitress. Highly recommended.
