Enjoyed a delightful dinner on a weekend night seated at a corner bar table. Fish, service and atmosphere were perfect for a cold rainy evening. A bit pricey but worth the money.

What a great restaurant! We started with the crab claws as an appetizer, which was excellent! The sauce was amazing! I had the scallops with bacon (more like ham) risotto and my husband had the monk fish. We loved both dishes. Really great food!

Very nice place for a quiet dinner. Reservations strongly suggested. Food was great although portions are small compared to many of the other places we dined during our trip. Definitely a favorite for tourists as we met diners from all over the States & Europe....More

Had lovely mid week lunch here with some visiting family members. The prawn cocktail starter was declared a winner! Fish and chips was great as were salmon and hake dishes. Desserts could also be recommended. Very pleasant staff.
