You will probably need to book some time in advance, but it is well worth it! The food is fresh, delicious and beautifully presented and the location is brilliant.

Found this place by coincidence on the Web. Spent here a perfect evening with my partner. We were so happy, we returned two days later for some more... Look no further if you love fresh seafood for a correct price. Excellent service and wine chart, ample parking space.

This is a great cafe or should that be restaurant in not such a great place, but please do not be put off by its location, just relish the fact that you are getting great food at much cheaper price than if this place was in a more up market area.
The ambiance is perfect, a large beach hut with rustic furniture, a beautiful display of all of the days catch a great wine list (including a very fine New Zealand sauvignon) and very friendly staff.
If i had one thing bad to say it was that my starter of conga eel mouse tasted of nothing more than lemon, so maybe let the fish shine through a little. (thats just a little aside to the chef by the way)
Anyhoo great place so if you are a fish lover (thats all thats on the menu by the way, well it was when we went) its well worth the journey.

We came here on a dull summer-turning-to-autumn evening, and the atmosphere warmed us up from the moment we arrived. Genuinely friendly staff all round, a fish-centred menu that had more variety than we might have expected, and an interesting eating experience ... My wife had some excellent scallops, but I risked the spicy Chinese crab, complete with hammer and pliers, chopping board, bib and bucket - a test of skill, to say the least, but well worth the effort.

All round, though, it lived up to everything we had heard about it, and we'll probably bring the family here for lunch some time.

Had a meal here with my wife whist having a four night break at the Moonfleet (qv my review). a good selection of fish and shellfish adequatley cooked rather than outstanding. Teh atmosphere in here is quite frantic, staff ruching about, and generally the service was abit rushed as thoiugh they are trying to get you in and out so as to get more people in. Its clearly very popular and I would recommend booking . Its situated just before the crossing that leads on to Portland, on the right at the start of Chesil Bank.
