good quality fish, order incorrectly taken and when requested to have chips replaced with original order of new potatoes, we could not believe it - chips were swiped off the plate and new potatoes replaced on top of greasy plate, even at home I would use a new clean plate! The Chef normally takes pride in his art of presentation,... More

I had sardines for a starter, and Lobster for dinner... Great Food. Great service. Outside or inside? WEll it is a little Wind there, so inside maybe? Or at the table NeXT to the entrance, if you do not care about traffic...

My boyfriend and I have visited the Regency on numerous occasions since seeing a recommendation from Rick Steine. We nearly always have to queue to be seated because it is constantly busy, but it is worth the wait. This restaurant attracts visitors from far and wide, particularly from China and Japan. The menu is very varied with Lobster, Oysters, Scallops,... More

Great place to eat seafood by the sea, we ordered the mixed plate.. had oyster, mussels, prawn, scallop and butter sauce in the dish for appetisers. It was really great. We also had cod, haddock and chips. Cranberry Juice, Seafood risotto as main with Cold Oyster (8pcs). All was really great and definitely recommended to try. Besides that, Regency Restaurant...

The owners need to get a grip on the customer service. Its so bad I had to laugh whilst leaving. The food is your typical fish and chips. I imagine this place survives on tourists visiting on a one of basis. As a local resident I would never step foot back in the place & I suspect many would not.

We had seen this popular seafood and Italian restaurant just along the seafront from our hotel the Holiday Inn and decided that we must try it! I rang and made a reservation for 7pm for two and so pleased I had as the restaurant was full with people queuing outside. We went straight in and were shown to our table.... More

Went about 9pm on a sunday evening. The place was packed and people were queuing up to get a table. I sat outside on a night where the weather had closed in and it was trying to rain, the heaters were adequate. Not being a lover of seafood, I opted for a pasta dish. Not the best but certainly not... More

Worst experience I have had in a Restuarant for years. Which was very disappointing as this restaurant has been a family favourite for years. Missing starters missing mains having to wait for half n hour for our bill. Spoilt our whole Sunday. Luckily the food was okay enough to sit through the bad services otherwise we would have left. Goodness... More

Its a huge place, so can accommodate large crowds and the wait for a table tends to be reasonable. There is both inside and outside seating. Only seat outside when its Very hot. There is a cold breeze off the sea. They claim to serve fresh and local seafood. There are specials on the board, in addition to the regular... More

I had read about this place shortly before visiting this place, and my plan was to eat some really fresh and well prepared fish by the seaside. Coming from London, I was tired of greasy fish and chips and really wanted a tastier option. I could smell the stale oil from the many eateries on the pier and this made... More
