“50/50 ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013 via mobile

We have been to this place on several occasions and it has not been consistent. The food is always great, especially the oysters! But the service is sometimes lacking. One time we have been there and the barman was not there so we were told we could only order bottles of wine or champagne, another time it took them forever to find seats for us and even though we asked for a booth, they only sat us at a table in the further area. Last time we were there everything was great, so it really depends! Would still go there, because the place itself is awesome!

“Nice spot and atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013 via mobile

At spring and summer it must be great to sit on the deck at the waterfront! But sitting inside is also a pleasure. Perfect for larger groups. A beautiful old warehouse with a good ambiance. Design really well done!

A took a while before our starter was served. And 3 or 4 waiters at our table? Not relaxed!

A waiter apologized and we got coffee on the house. The food was OK but 'not cheap' I will give it another try!

“Distinctly average”

Didn't have our table booking despite online confirmation. Slow service and all a bit chaotic. Food good however but wine seriously overpriced.

“Nice business dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013 via mobile

Went here with 10 work colleagues. I just admit it looked far from being a restaurant even when outside - mire like a warehouse - but when you get in its a huge restaurant.

While waiting for others to join us we had a drink at the bar - large open area with a great selection of drinks and nuts on the bar.

We were soon shown to our table just opposite the kitchen area so you could see the excellent selection of fresh seafood on offer. We chose from a much shortened menu as a range group and the meal at started well with some high quality oysters on ice.

I chose the tuna tartar to start with which was excellent and tasty really fresh. I had a steak for main which isn't always a good choice on a seafood restaurant but it did taste very good - and the chips were excellent!

The waitresses were very attentive throughout the meal and the wines they helped us select were great.
