“Relaxed lunch”
Reviewed December 1, 2013

The fish is very acceptable and at a good price. However if you choose to have a rather tired
salad with it plus a baked potato, prepare for the price to jump up. In my case, by £3.95.
Service is good and the view from the terrace is unbeatable.

“Cozy pub in superb seaside location with great seafood”
Reviewed November 22, 2013

Visited with a few colleagues for dinner and drinks. This pub is set in one of the most beatiful parts of Gib (Catalan Bay), overlooking the sea. The place feels quite cozy, it serves very good seafood (we tried fish soup and a HUGE platter of mixed fried seafood - fresh and yummy) and a few good beers on tap. I would add a peated single malt Scotch to their top shelf and, for my taste, it would be perfect. Will return for sure when in Gib

“Bit disappointed”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

We ate here 2 years ago and the food was fantastic. On Tuesday 29th October we went as we had raved about the food to the other members of our group. One waiter was very friendly but the other hardly said a word. The overall bill was very cheap for 5 of us but we were very disappointed in the food. Ok, there was lots of it - 3 of us shared a fish platter which would have served 6, unfortunately it was all deep fat fried and very greasy, however the John Dory was gorgeous. One of the group had tuna and the portion was again huge but a bit overcooked. We know where the leftovers went - the local cat was very fat!

“Lovely atmosphere”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

We stopped here by chance, too early to eat so we just had drinks. The barman was very friendly (an older man) and the pub is well located on the sea front. The specials board was reasonably priced with fresh fish.

“Excellent lunch with a great view”
Reviewed October 20, 2013 via mobile

London pride on tap and friendly staff plus a good selection of fish. The local caught tuna was very good and the Russian salad excellent.
The chicken on skewers was disappointing
Overall an excellent place and I will return
