If you love sea food (shell fish) this should be top of your list, but you need to book weeks in advance!!!!! Great staff, very helpful, top location on the beach and best of all the quality of the shell fish - amazing

I saw this fabulous gem of a restaurant on a TV programme and thought we must go, soon. Since seeing the programme, every month have been saying we must go. My husband booked it as a surprise and whisked me away for the weekend. From the moment you walk in, you realise that this will be a restaurant you will... More

If the restaurant is full and it normally is... don't be sad - they little cabin along from the restuarant does the most delicious crab sandwiches which you can then take back and enjoy at their outdoor seating area. The ONLY way to describe these peoplle is they have got it RIGHT!!!!! WEll done.
