The staff were excellent and accommodating. The ingredients were out of the sea, what could go wrong? Well, delicious scallops covered in a bottled chilli sauce and a crab bisque where the roux was not cooked out and the whole thing tasted of flour. Additionally, I suspect that the crab was tinned. Finally, a risotto is an infusion of rice... More

Excellent seafood on the menu at this restaurant. We went for our last meal while on holiday. It was busy and buzzy. The staff were welcoming and friendly and helped us with the menu. We will definitely book a table again on our next visit.

The food was very good but over 2 hours for one course? The staff had no interest in the customers despite the high quality of food. Even paying the bill took ages as "we only have one machine so it can take a while"; simply not acceptable for a restaurant charging £20 for a main course. Such a shame. They... More

I have to say this is one of the best meals we have had in the UK for a very long time. Walking in without a reservation during August we didn't rate our chances of getting a table, but the staff were very friendly and organised a table while we went for a drink. The crab bisque was to die... More

Had a lovely family lunch here last week. We hadn't booked and staff were open and accurate about 20 min wait. Good quality food from the set lunch menu and good value. Will definitely return next year.

Had a lovely meal here - booked at short notice. Service was a bit slow but the staff were apologetic and had the best steak I have ever eaten out

This restaurant serves great food but what a shame the service let it down and earned the place 3 stars instead of 4. We had to ask for drinks orders to be taken after waiting 15 mins and even then the waitress didn't know if they sold Prosecco by the glass. We were offered bread, said yes but it didn't... More

This is a charming restaurant on the harbours edge which offers great views over the water. It is clean and welcoming with charming (although slightly understaffed the night we were there) staff. The menu is not too big and it has plenty of variety. The starters we ordered were the best part of the meal, the crab bisque had plenty... More

We only had a coffee in here and it was ok. Service was quick and friendly. It was quite quiet when we were in and the coffee was fine but nothing special. I was quite impressed with the food menu tho and it looked great so I think if I'm back in the area I will definitely book a table.
