Bread, mackerel paté, horseradish dip-all amazing and that was just for starters!! Uninterrupted views across the beach and out to the sea. The food and service were above and beyond and the desserts were delish! Highly recommended.

It is right on the beach so not surprisingly you do pay a little bit more than many other places in Brighton. Food however delicious, and non fish on the menu if you do not enjoy fish or shellfish. Staff friendly but service was slow.

Made to feel so welcome as soon as we arrived despite being 20 mins late. The waiter, Tim, was very helpful and attentive. Mussels were sublime! Scallops beautiful! Enjoyed a window table so worth booking early! Really enjoyed the experience and would come back again.

Service good until main meal served when we become invisible. Basically they got the money orders they let it ride and service was apathetic. They offered to give service charge back which we didn't accept . Waitresses doing what they were told

Perhaps an unprepossessing frontage but hides an excellent food experience. Local fish produce served by friendly staff. To be recommended.
