This place is gret. We enjoyed lobster tail and dressed crab. Simply stunning. Fresh, reasonably priced and really tasty.

Thank you for taking the time to review us. We love reviews & I hope always strive to impress all of our customers. The weather was not great while you were visiting, but the shellfish as always was definitely on form.

“A lovely little classic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2014

Marathon weekend saw us enjoying a stroll along the seafront taking in the vapours and brought us across this enchanting seafood stall.

I agree with the majority of posts about this place. Excellent seafood, a wide range of condiments and reasonable prices. The oysters were sublime and the owners refreshingly pleasant as we discussed world travel and days away from the "office".

Definitely worth stopping by if you see the flags waving - the signal that its open.

“A must!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2014

We visited here a couple of weeks ago. The oysters were amazing, as were the mussels & Old Leigh cockles. Plenty of choices of sauces too, including homemade ones.
Our only disappointment was that when we called again the next day, the amazing oysters had all sold out!. Oh well there's always the next time we visit Brighton.
Very friendly people. We will be back soon.

Thank you for a very welcome review. I am sorry we sold out and had to let you down. We only have Colchester wild oysters, so there is a constant demand for them.i am glad you enjoyed your visit to us and look forward to seeing you again very soon.

“*****Always a pleasure to visit ******”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2014 via mobile

The sunny weather took us to a trip along Brighton Seafront and of course we couldn't walk passed our favourite shellfish bar.
As always the whelks were fresh & tasty and my hubby had Oysters with lime & chilli that went down well.
Such friendly owners they always brighten our day we were also told that all the sauces were homemade.
Congratulations on your stylish refurb ******

Always good to hear from the regulars when you reopen in a new year . This year we opened with a great new image and a total refit. I am glad to see it was noticed, everything is so white and clean. It will make it even better to work in.
Let's hear. From more regulars. Let's hear your views
