We were recommended to this restaurant by the owner of the b and b we stayed in and advised to book in advance which we did, and I am glad, because we got a table right by the window and it was incredibly busy. And I am not surprised - the food is excellent and not overly expensive, the fresh... More

We went for dinner to the Harbour In n last night with our 10 month old. All was going well until she decided to wake up and scream the house down.

We spent a lovely evening here. The food was delicious . My starter was not quite warm enough. The kitchen immediately cooked another and it arrived piping hot. The main fish courses were superb.

We were there on Bonfire night, so it was incredibly busy, but the staff did a great job of getting everyone served as best they could. No complaints about the quality of everything we had, and they do have a great view if you are sitting outside

The blackboard menu said "baguette" - well we expected crusty baguette. What we got is soft roll sandwiches. While the coronation chicken filling is tasty, the bread is disappointing. One shouldn't advertise "Baguette" if its not true baguette - why not just call it a roll. The coffee was average. Busy place during lunch and service was slow.

Excellent restaurant for seafood right on the harbour -- good choice of fresh fish as well as other dishes. Service is very friendly, but can be a bit slow during busy periods -- advisable to make reservation for dinner.

Thank John E
