We tried the set menu, around £30.00 for the courses. Each course was excellent, served with reasonable time between. The waiting staff were attentive without being overbearing. I particularly enjoyed the shin of beef. I would highly recommend this place for a special meal.

We weren't hungry. We over-ordered. We ate everything in sight. The plate of oysters were some of the best we've had. Really fabulous flavour, good size and beautifully fresh. I can't remember what we had afterwards but the portions were huge and we loved them....More

Prix fixe restaurant menu with about 6 choices of starters, mains and deserts. Food was well prepared and service was adequate. We did dine with reservations on a very busy night and the servers were a bit scarce at times. Lovely sunset over the water...More
