Ate here and would highly recommend. Food was fabulous. Get there early though, as they sell out of items. As a vegetarian, I found I had a good choice of food. Great, friendly, efficient service.

Always visit here at least once in the evening when in Scilly. Rarely fails to disappoint. Nice cockers, tasty tapas, good unpretentious atmosphere.
