Every time we go to Skegness we visit San Rufos. Never been disappointed! On our last visit they had a Lobster Thermidor for starters which at only £12 was the size of some I’ve had in other restaurants as a main! This trip we both...More

Visited with my husband and parents. Great service from booking a table thru to being served food and drinks. Friendly environment and great atmosphere. Food is second to none and is well worth a visit.

We can’t fault any of the dishes that we have tried. Everything was cooked with care, and we thoroughly enjoyed all of them, particularly the homemade pasta filled with swordfish. The only problem was the very lengthy service, despite the fact the there were only...More

We had really great seafood, freshly prepared, tasty, huge portions. Only downside was the waiting. It took us 2h for a starter+main, with a total of 16 customers in the restaurant... I hope it was a one off due to some issue in the kitchen!

My mrs mate who was with us can only eat gluten-free stuff and she got a chicken dish with a creamy mushroom sauce and seasonal veg, can't remember what else come with it. I'm sure they'd have other gluten-free dishes as well

Only on the street the restaurant is on, so be aware of parking restrictions.
