If you want the BEST fish n chips, this is the place!! I know it sounds crazy, but it's true. Their Italian food is absolutely delicious also, but we ate fish and chips three times while we were visiting here!

Very friendly relaxed service. Food was very tasty, freshly prepared & generous portions. Restaurant was very quiet, ideal for a leisurely reunion lunch with friends. Set menu at £14.95 ( two courses and drink of choice) was excellent value. Minutes from Paddington Station.
