Still full of praise

This is a really good fish restaurant. This time I had soft shell crab, followed by a special of hake with pine nuts and herbs. both extraordinary - and our rather diverse group of 4 diners all enjoyed their choices. Beat a path to Worthing to go here.

Always a pleasure to be here and the best in Worthing for us. Prices are reasonable for high quality cuisine. We have many favourites but I have to stop ordering the skate with caper dressing.

Fantastic menu and the fish could not be fresher.Really friendly place with plenty of seats. You don't have to have fish they also do meat dishes which look very tasty.

We go here several times a year, and always walk away satisfied. Unusually for this sort of estblishment ... a super wine list at very reasonable prices.

What a pity. I used to love this restaurant and the environment is still lovely. Great place for a family or a night out with a group of friends. However, a fish restaurant should know how to cook fish and on this visit the scallops were very sad. Described as 'King' but barely Queen size. The haddock was overcooked, dry... More

Booked a table for two here on Saturday, 9 May. Very friendly staff and the menu choice is very good. Naturally fish dishes dominate but there are other options available too. Our dinner was reasonably priced and an excellent choice of wine and beers.

This place is consistently great. An excellent choice of fresh fish, grilled as well as battered, and fabulous chips. There are some meat choices too, and it is open all day. It clearly has a regular clientelle, which is always a good sign.
