Went for a late leisurely lunch with a friend today. We had the oysters Rockefeller, soft shell crab, jumbalya and bouillabaisse. All of them were very nice. What made the lunch for me though we're the friendly, attentive (but not in your face) staff. Had sea views in the sunshine too! Would definitely go there again.

Enjoyed a decent lunch at this popular restaurant in Leigh. Food was well cooked and of good quality. A wide ranging menu though fish seems to be the sin strength. Service friendly but the two waitresses on duty had to work hard; another person was needed. Not sure why they felt it necessary to have Phil Collins on an endless... More

A group of us had lunch at this restaurant, to which we had been before. The menu has a selection of dishes which can be combined for a £14.99 two course meal. They also have specials not on the regular menu. We had a range of meals, smoked haddock hash, jambalaya, fish cakes and mussels. As well as fish dishes,... More

My wife opted meatless monday deal. £9.99 for 3 courses. Food was a good portion and delicious. I opted for crayfish risotto, probably the best i've had. I preferred it to Jamie's Italian, Ask Italian and Zizzi's. Probably the best seafood restaurant in southend.

We travelled from Hertfordshire to enjoy a well deserved mother's day lunch! We opted for this restaurant based on the wonderful feedback we had read. The overall service was good; our table was not in a great place which made it difficult for the servers to get to other diners and in the end my husband decided to move his... More
