My wife and I had dinner here last Saturday. We are both fans of Rick Stein and had earen here before but the 2nd visit wasn't as good as the first. Perhaps our expectations were too high but the food just wasn't as good as on our fist visit. Firstly there was no room in the pre-dinner drinks area so... More

A long anticipated visit with friends for lunch. Lovely food..... Very professional service from front of house. However quite formal and lacked atmosphere. There's more to a restaurant than good food! Informal approach would be more hospitable and comfortable in this day and age. Jane and Claus

Great food it was excellent if not a little pricey, but it was cooked and served brilliantly. Although the Fruits de mer did take a while to come out after the hot food had been served. Much to the annoyance of our waiter, but a great experiance had by all of us.

I know ... everyone is looking for a review which will slate this restaurant and ridicule the poor service and bad food. But unfortunately our experience dining at this establishment was excellent. Our reservation slot did not bode well. Saturday night at 9:30. If things were to go wrong, we would be at the prime time for it to happen.... More

Have always wanted to eat here. The service was excellent and the food was exquisite! We had wine at the bar then over to our table. We had the set lunch which turned out to be the best meal ever!! Rick was also eating in the restaurant and the place had a great vibe. Want to eat here again!!

Table booked for 9.30. Sat down at 10.30. Food started arriving at 11pm. Left at 1.15am. Staff were apologetic and offered us free aperitif. But at the end of the day it's not what's expected at such an establishment. Food was good. And the service at the table was good. But overall it was not handled that well. Almost amateurish....

I have visited the Seafood Restaurant on a couple of occasions over the past few years - both times in the evening. This time we opted for a lunch time visit - fabulous food and a relaxed atmosphere - waiting staff very attentive. Rick Stein also popped out for a photo and a quick chat which added a special touch... More

This is our third visit and no complaints again. Staff are friendly and accommodating, service is relaxed and we were able to enjoy our meal without being pressured in to rushing. Food was delicious and plentiful. The child's menu had a good selection and was also tasty.
