We ate lunch here this weekend on Sunday. We didn't have a reservation - when we walked in there were several empty tables but the waiters who greeted us told us they were "fully booked" and there were no tables available - we could eat outside in freezing cold or at the bar. Despite us pointing out empty tables and... More

Had the set menu lunch. Portions for lunch right size. Very tasty food well presented with attentive staff. It was busy, which reflects upon their reputation. Will go back. The trees seem to block part of the magnificent view, so reluctantly one suggest the chainsaw is required.

I took my parents here hoping to treat them whilst they were visiting from Suffolk. I myself has been once previously with work friends and had very much enjoyed the Seasonal Menu and the beautiful view. Unfortunately this time the food was not up to par. I ordered the Fruits de Mer hoping for something special- it lacked initial impact... More

The food was definitely good but some of the dishes were trying to be too clever and complex with the flavours not working together....more like contradictory rather than complmetary or contrasting. The setting is lovely and the restaurant nicely decorated. But the attitude.....my goodness. The 'maitre de' stomped around like a self important foreman on a factory floor, noisily crashing... More

Its a great shame to see such negative feedback and the whole team is disappointed to read your comments. However we are a successful restaurant that has had year on year growth for the past 4 years, we are delighted that we attract just as many locals as non. To be honest attracting locals with the calibre of restaurants we... More

It was a tad pricey, but food, wine and view were sublime. The duck starter and Sea Bream main were cooked to perfection, as were the vegetables, and a crisp white Rioja was a delicious accompaniment. Very highly recommended.

We had a great window seat with lovely sea views. The taxing menu was excellent, innovative and varied and the service great. When busy the acoustics are such it can get a little noisy due to the hard surfaces but will to stop us from returning.

This restaurant is set right on the water and on a sunny evening I can't think of many better spots to spend a few hours. My starter of oysters were fresh and tasty with an excellent shallot vinegar. The sea bream main course was delicate and well cooked. A side dish of bacon, avocado and pine nut salad was very... More

Went here for dinner as a special treat and we were not disappointed. The food looked and tasted fantastic and the service was amazing. The sea views from the restaurant are absolutely fabulous. It is by no means a cheap restaurant but well worth the money, Definitely a case of get what you pay for!

My wife booked this for birthday surprise, we have been meaning to go for some time, so it was with great relish that she drove me here for our lunch. The car park is very limited when busy, but they are so accommodating, we just double parked, and gave our keys to the manager, who would move it if someone... More
