“Great fish and chips”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

My wife and I visited here on a Saturday afternoon, and could not fault the place. We were greeted by a very friendly waitress, and shown to a table with great views overlooking the sea. The menu had a very good choice of fresh fish, however we both went for the standard fish and chips which we thought was excellent, some of the best I have ever had. I would definitely recommend this restaurant; friendly and helpful staff, great sea views, and excellent food!

“Woth walking a bit further to find!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

Found this establishemnt by accident as its slightly off the main walk to the harbour arm. Does have great views of sea and north harbour arm.
Excellent specials when we visited including scallops, lobster and crab. Crab was very enjoyable and well presented. Other choices were available.

“Evening Meal May 9th”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

Enjoyed our meal,fish very good but felt the chips were not as enjoyable as on past visits,perhaps it was just us ! We prefer to eat here because of the view over the sea & will eat here again when in the town.
