We visited Hix and it was busy ....booking essential !!!!! The service is good and the food is variable...depending on what you order ......we had a god chat and were not rushed at all. My fish pie was very filling , however the dressed crab was not presented as we expected and was a very small portion.

Very much looking forwards to this trip which probably did not help our disappointment. The staff are excellent and attentive. I got the impression that they were a little embarrassed by the lack of food. For instance; my dressed crab comprised of a little circle of crab meat on a large plate with one small piece of toast on a... More

This place has lovely big (and spanking clean) windows overlooking the bay, and with the patio around the outside with the railing, gave me the feeling that I was on a ship! So you get a sea view from all the tables (but some better than others). We parked in the public carpark at the top of the hill &... More

Having booked our table months ago was really looking forward to our visit. We were greeted by a really friendly restaurant manager, shown to our table which had amazing views across the harbour, but unfortunately the that's where the good points ended. The food was average , my wife's fish fingers were over cooked served with frozen chips not home... More

We have been to Hix before and had a couple of good meals and a couple of very average ones. This time we were in a party of six and there around New Year, there were several other large groups in the restaurant. We were seated by the fire exit, which emitted a massive draft. My brother in law and... More

The location for this restaurant is stunning, overlooking the beautiful harbour at Ly,me Regis. I have eaten here twice in the past 4 months. The first time my wife and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary and we also eat here on New Years Day. On both occasions the food was disappointing. On New Year's Day the food and service...

Although there are some negative reviews here, I think that you should ignore them. The food here is amazing, the best fish I have ever had. Furthermore the service was very good and the waiters polite. Although the food is quite pricey it's an experience everyone should have. 5*
