Splendid view and situation. Was really looking forward to the meal but the wait of over an hour for fish and chips is ridiculous. We wondered if they went out and actually caught the fish in that time! Very disappointing and spoilt what could have benn a lovely evening.

We visited at the end of the Easter holidays and highly recommend the fantastic service and amazing food - honestly the best sea bass we ever tasted! Can't wait to come back!

Stopped for lunch when visiting this lovely village and chose this place over the very busy pub across the road. We were not disappointed in any way. Service was very good, the crab sandwich I had was too and there were fantastic views of the beautiful rugged coast line from our seat at the window.

the Casquinha de siri is a surprising hot crab starter which always delights; the staff are very attentive, as is the owner; helping with advice to choose dishes which originate in Brazil. Try anything from the menu which is not familiar and you won;t be disappointed. The owner told us that if you order something and it's not to your... More

We visited the restaurant during a large family holiday and had a booking for 20 which was fabulous. We were welcomed by the owner who made sure we were fully looked after and who seated us all personally. Most importantly, they really looked after my wife, who is coeliac, where they cleaned down the kitchen and organised her food away... More

What a brilliant place. They smoke their own Craster kippers which are amazing. The lovely lady who is front of house is so friendly. As well as the kippers, try the smoked haddock salad, the paella, the tiramisu. Great views are the icing on the cake. Thank you! Afterwards walk along the beautiful coast up to Dunstanburgh Castle.
