One of the best seafood restaurants I have been, everything was great, food and service! The waiter couldn't do enough to make us feel welcome, was very attentive with my little girl, making sure she had her bread and plate, even that I didn't ask for it! Five stars... being a waitress my self I know that little things make... More

Our group of 8 ordered two seafood boats as higly recommended by the waiter. Could not have been more disappointed! A real shame that a restaurant classified as a 'seafood restaurant' serves frozen crab and rancid oysters. The day old bread is toasted and slathered with butter, but served COLD! Don't waste your time dining here.

Had a wonderful dinner. Fresh well cooked fish and good attentive service. Worth a visit We had a platter of salmon, squid,sea bream, sea bass. Really good quality but rather expensive.

Fish and seafood par excellence. Huge variety, well-prepared, great service and all at a reasonable price. Cataplena for 2 was delicious and almost too much. The cheery owner insisted we wear plastic bibs for this course - quite right. Fairly busy with lots of locals rather than tourists. Prices are fair considering the quality and quantity.

My wife had the Grouper, which she said was the best fish she ever had eaten. My fillet steak was also excellent. We observed a couple having the Seafood Boat and while they really enjoyed it, it took them about an hour and a half to eat it.

If you like seafood this is definitely the place for you. I recommend booking because it gets busy. The portions are generous, if your going for one of the boats don't get a starter. The food was amazingly delishous. Perfection. The service was great, friendly and fast. The restaurant is casual looking but it's great. I highly recommend going and... More

Arrived at This Restaurant without a Restaurant but got a table as it was quite early. The Seafood Boat for two is certainly worth having. With some lovely bread to mop up the juices you don t need a starter in my opinion . The King Prawns were some of the best I have ever tasted. We had the House-Wine... More

I never post negative reviews but the manager in her upset my friend and I so much that I felt people deserved to know the experience we had. We had heard great things about this restaurant and called in on the early afternoon to book a table for 9pm, but we were told not to bother as it would be... More

We have eaten at this restaurant a few times, the seafood boat is indeed delicious as well as the grilled salmon but the staff need some serious training.They forget to bring you the things you ask for, sometimes they make you feel uncomfortable and you always have the felling that everyone is rushing.
