“Amazing food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

We visited here as part of an arranged tour and had a langoustine dinner. Having never eaten this before I was a bit nervous but the food was amazing! Dessert was a melt in the middle chocolate dessert with icecream and fruit and it was delicious! Would return here again and eat the exact same thing without a doubt! The service was brilliant too!

“Fantastic food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

Fantastic food and great service. I had quite possibly the best lamb I have ever eaten (lamb fillet with lobster tails). Only the limited options for my vegetarian friends stops it getting 5/5.

The food was excellent. My son had the seafood soup and I had the seafood special, with lobster tails and catfish. Both were excellent.

“Truly a hidden but delicious gem!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012 via mobile

We've been here for lunch and for dinner the same day because of yummie seafood served in this place. the restaurant itself is cosy, the service was relatively quick and very friendly! You have to try the lobster - highly recommended!
