Fantastic fresh seafood and fish... nice little restaurant near the sea. Portland's a beautiful place with lots of strange people... definitely worth a visit particularly if you like rock climbing :)

FAB FAB FAB!! Lovely fresh fish at reasonable prices. A great location. Pleasant relaxed atmosphere and the staff are brilliant. If you don't like seafood this isn't the place for you but if you do you will be in heaven. I had the smoked trout followed by the half a crab in spicy chinese sauce. Served on a plate but... More

I pre booked before arriving in Weymouth so I was surprised about the location probably because I was taking my parents who on first impression thought we were arriving at a dump. Happily, they enjoyed the laid back atmosphere and the quality of the food spoke for itself. Look forward to going back!!!

We are locals but it feels like we are on holiday when we visit this place. The food is excellent and the service too. Seafood in tanks at the back which you can see from the restaurant. Looks a bit tumble-down but that is the charm of the place. Go, it's good. £47 per head.

Decided to have portion of their chips and they were excellent. Looked at the... More

I was taken there during my birthday weekend. Sat outside in the (rare) evening sun with nice views over Chesil beach. Our meals were quick to come out. The mussels for start were my favourite, highly recommended. As is the medium cider. Will definitely be back.

Thank chivz24
