We visited the restaurant early evening for dinner. The food was tasty but could be improved especially for the price of it. Homemade chips would make a massive difference to the meal as would a more thought out side salad. The dessert looked like it had come from a packet not homemade. The music was a bit loud for an...

I went yesterday to this place to have lunch with my wife and a couple of friends. We had a very good welcome when we arrive. The place looks very clean and nice. The staff is very attentive and friendly. The food was OK, good price but a little bit taste less. They don't use salt at all in any... More

There were 4 of us. It was early about 7pm so quiet for the time of year. We ordered mussels, Sallops, Salmon. The Service was ok but lacked something. We had quiet a wait which surprised us as we were the only people in there. The mussels arrived some were cold and the sauce lacked seasoning. There was no chips... More

Enjoyed a tasty fish lunch after walking around rye looking in all the antique shops. Great service and modern decor. This village is very quaint and great for a day out or weekend visit.

Friends birthday evening meal on a Saturday night. Booked early, and the restaurant got busy. A good mix of seafood and steak, as it says on the tin. With a highly recommended Rioja to complement a very reasonable meal. Descent price of £35 per head for 3 courses and plenty of drinks.

Had dinner in Carey's on Tuesday evening, and overall had a pretty decent time. The missus and I both went for fish - I think that my wife's seabass was a better bet than my sole (well cooked, but needed a little more 'lift' by way of seasoning or sauce), both of which came with a medley of veg (same...

Great place to stop and eat after strolling around at the many antique shops. The fish was yummy and service efficient and polite. Decor was very fresh, airy and modern, lots of space, good to not be cramped in and close to other tables like some places.

We had a lunch of mussel and wine. Very good indeed. Good chips, well-prepared mussels (not too salty or creamy). Pleasant atmosphere and very helpful service.

We stumbled across the restaurant after swimming in the sea and we were starving. They were offering 1KG of fresh muscles (yes, 1KG!) It was a no brainier, moule marinière! The food was reasonable, not massively expensive. I'm not sure it really was 1KG (possibly including the plate?). Not Too expensive really.
