The food, ambience and service is very good here. It is a good 15-minute walk from the wave statue on Thames. We met a number of locals who frequent this restaurant and highly recommend it. It is a bit more "fancy" than other restaurants in Newport, so I wouldn't bring toddlers and I wouldn't wear flip flops and a T-shirt. The one sour note is the unwelcoming gentleman who is brusque to customers. Ignore him, and you'll have an enjoyable evening.
