“Good seafood, average service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

Interesting menu, good seafood as you would expect, themed decor and welcoming front of house. What does let this restaurant down is the table service, very average with long wait for a drink or indeed dessert menu. Given the prices I expected more

“Good fish high prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

This place has a most impressive menu of fish and sea food. The quality of its dishes is high but so are the prices!

“The Plaice !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Novel restaurant with a theme of the sea. Very welcoming and knowledgeable staff. Very extensive menu plus boards in the restaurant with daily options. Good atmosphere with the owner coming out to chat to the customers.
Lovely fresh food/fish (the fishmonger came to deliver whilst we were there)
The food came out very hot and it had not been near a microwave as so many restaurants do these days. The vegetables were very fresh and tasty in fact all the food we had was very tasty.
The prices were very reasonable with the bill coming to approx £125, 3 courses for 4 people which included drinks.
The staff could not do enough for us they were all very pleasant indeed.
this is not a fast food restaurant as so many people like these days it is the place (plaice) to find good fresh fish dishes, although there are other dishes on offer.
Yes we would go again and indeed our friends have been again in the evening and were not disappointed.

“Good, almost excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Exceptional choice on the menu. We've been a couple of times and both occasions were good. Took a while to get a second glass of wine during the meal - had to ask twice and then go to the bar eventually. That's our only adverse comment. Love the decor too.
