Good Choices, generous portions, prompt but not pushy service. We went on a weekday for lunch - it was busy, but even so the service was good.

A varied choice of menu offerings with friendly service. Great to eat outside in the fresh air when weather permits, especially on a sunny day.

The food here is yummy. I had a lamb burger and would like to have had 1 more :D This restaurant is on the seafront and you can sit outside if you fancy. Lovely atmosphere and great in the evenings when they have live music.

We come here before we go to the Rustico restaurant next door. It’s casually trendy nice environment, good choice of drinks and friendly. In the summer it’s nice to sit outside and people watch, whilst drinking a nice cold drink and a bite to eat....More

Popped in on a quite Wednesday afternoon. Not very busy, so we could sit where we wanted, by a window to people watch. Not an enormous menu, which is sometimes a good thing. Shared a charcuterie board, massive portion! was a really good selection of...More
