We have been going there for years and have never been disappointed with the food. The staff always welcome us with a kiss and one when we leave. Although not cheap for fish and chips, you get a basket of fresh warm French bread and butter. gherkins and pickled onions preceded by a little canapé. The batter on the fish... More

A really enjoyable meal. Delicious fish in light, crispy batter (not greasy) and lovely chips. The best fish and chips we've had for a very long time. The ice cream sundaes are great too (we really enjoyed the salted caramel). A limited menu, but done extremely well. The service was excellent too. Sadly we discovered this restaurant just before having... More

The fish and chip was also very good to taste fresh and not to much fried batter. I would love to revisit this restaurant. Price: Little bit expensive, but I guess if you... More
