“excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

This was our first visit to this restaurant. The service was very good, attentive staff that were'nt too in your face. The setting is good, with a view over the marina and plenty of tables to sit outside and have a pre or post dinner drink.

The fish dishes were excellent. Two of my party had the seaford skewer, which looked really impressive, they enjoyed it and said they would definately reccomend it. The Beef Wellington was excellent, with quite a good size fillet that was tender and cooked to order. Certainly reccomended if you are not a big fish eater.

We will definately return when we go back to Ipswich

“Excellent customer service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Group of 8 of us popped in for a few drinks on a Saturday night. Didn't book a table however they done there up most to get us a table. Would reccomend there as they treat you as a person not a number. Looking forward to going back.

“Great food and service. ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

Went here for lunch on a sunny afternoon, sat outside overlooking the harbour. Staff were excellent, very friendly and great service. Went for special lunch menu 3 courses for £15.50. Had mussels, sea bass filet, then creme brûlée. All three were delicious, especially lobster bisque with sea bass. Looking forward to going again.

“Very friendly and great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

I have eaten in the waterfront on a number of occasions. Every meal I have had has been very good, whether I ate with my husband, a small group or a large group. I have now met Greg and Lorraine, the owners, and they seem very nice and welcoming. The Beef Wellington is to die for :). They also have occasional live music and we saw Irie J there a few weeks ago who was excellent and made it a perfect Sunday afternoon.
