Been here twice and had good service and a fantastic Fruit de Mer the first time we went, the second time I had lobster and it wasn't the best in the world it had been over cooked so was quite tough. Staff are lovely with good produce knowledge, good wine selection

I ordered Black bream £16.95. It was served with a ball of almost raw cauliflower surrounded in soggy batter and the same thing with nearly raw broccoli that my knife wouldn't cut through, and no potatoes! My wife had the Sunday roast which they claim is the best on the island LOL! Pork like cardboard un-edible roast spuds, nearly raw... More

We wanted to impress visitors from the USA. It was a lovely sunny evening and thought it would be a great end to their visit. Good fish. Good views etc. It was the complete opposite!! The staff were very pleasant but the ambience was awful. Noisy children screeching all the time and their table was awash with crab debris etc.... More

We have been to the piranha a couple of times and had amazing food, we went with a group of 9 and every one had an incredible time. Not one slight grumble about anything, from the roast to mussels. We were so impressed that we have booked our wedding reception there. The staff are brilliant, the owners are lovely and... More

We eat here because of the location and great food. Oh and the professional brilliant staff. I had the duck and liz had the crab; this thing was a danger to divers as it was so big so needed to be eaten! We have also had events here - all was brilliant!

Just had a great meal here for our 25 weeding anniversary. Food was great, service was great and staff couldn't have done more. Please keep up the good work. Thanks.

Have just had the 'Wednesday Night Special'! Lobster or Crab plus other specials and the main menu. A couple of months ago I wrote a review on Lobster Alive in Barbados. We've eaten there several times and always had a lovely experience..... but I have found somewhere even better right here near home, at least half the price and bigger... More

Welcoming staff, good coffee, cold beers, and a pleasant view over the marina. Plenty of tables outside if it's sunny, and even up some stairs on the roof terrace. There's a restaurant menu, and a bar snack type menu. From the latter, we had the sharing platter (that rhymes but it doesn't matter...) with a generous variety of fishy things... More

I’m a bit surprised by all the good reviews, this is one of the worst meals I’ve had for a long time. The restaurant looks nice on initial impression, but the chairs are ripped and worn. It’s also very noisy. Service wasn’t great. The meal came out in parts, side orders separately. With one person serving, and a big group... More
