The service was excellent, and the food very good indeed. I would not hesitate in returning. It was a birthday treat and I enjoyed every moment, thank you!

There are 3 elements that converge to produce a wonderful restaurant experience - ambience, service and of course food. This place scores top marks on all 3 with the added bonus of a fantastic view. The natural wood and white decor gives it a refreshing contemporary coastal vibe, it's small size a comforting snugness. The service was friendly, efficient and... More

We ordred soup which apparently usually is served without bread,when we asked it was brought as though it was a favour. One fish dish (Cod) was in a watery base completely tasteless ,only improved by the chips All the veg are extra at £3-50.not very imaginative with peas & beans. The atmosphere was cold and an uninviting place for not... More

Could I celebrate in a better way? Doubt it. With my wife and in-laws we had a great meal, oysters just wonderful, excellent wine, very good and attentive staff. Well just add the view and you simply have one of the the greatest. A must go to . Get a window table or outside if the weather is good.

This restaurant couldn't be faulted, the service was superb, the food was excellent. Thoroughly recommend the cuttlefish croquettes. The views are an added bonus.

The soda bread was excellent served with taramasalata . I had Lyme Bay scallops with sea aster followed by cod fillet with mussels & sea purslane.... More

We were staying in a hotel locally and Hix had been recommended to us so we thought we would give it a try. We visited the restaurant to book a table for later that evening, they only had 9.30 which was no problem to us so we accepted this booking. On arrival the table was not ready so we chose... More

Judging by some of the reviews on here I must have been lucky as I found the service very good, as was the food. I had not booked but turned up at about 7.30 on a Monday night and whilst it was busy they could seat me at an outside table which was fine, with a fabulous view and only... More

This was the third time we have visited this restaurant and had been very happy with the food and service in the past. Today we took our son for his birthday. I had asked for a table in the window which we were given as the views are amazing. However, my husband said that his Huss tasted of ammonia. Also... More
