This restaurant is situated at the northern end of the Western Super Mare Beach front and not immediately noticeable to the uninitiated. Definitely a place to visit in daylight hours as the views over the Bristol Channel are quite stunning. Good menu at reasonable prices with wine not over-priced either. Great place for all the family.

I really do like to be balanced with a review so let's start with the good part.....We arrived for lunch and were shown to our table by a very pleasant young waitress who was very helpful and knowledgeable about the menu. It was a grey day, overcast and showery so the views from the panoramic windows were not at their best. The menu read well and had such promise of a gastro experience.We ordered 3 different starters and 3 main courses. Sadly this was not to be - the starters - portions were small (£6 each) and needed additional seasoning. Salt pepper and lemons brought on request. The crayfish risotto was by far the best dish. The main courses were overpriced and did not represent value for money again each one needed seasoning. Additional vegatables available at £3 per portion.
The hand cut chips were great!! The wine list is pretentious and expensive I think the lowest price was £24 in this day
of the apps the provenance is easily checked. The first bottle had to be returned as it was oxidized. Such a good location bright and airy with good staff.

Anniversay Dinner for two - 1st course fine - second course they decided to change my order by suppying the meat with a horrible concotion of unadvertised vegatables, on mentioning this The offered to supply a dish of carrots, of course by this time dear wife was well into her meal , I was left waiting and ended up with a plate of hot carrots and and seperate plate of now cold chicken. - I did not want Chicken and carrots and would not have ordered that patricular combination from the menu if I had known - Wife not keen on making a fuss so I suffered quiety - Completely spoilt the evening.
Cannot beleive that a suposed quality resturaunt cannot provide the very basic of customer service ie delivering what was ordered !!!!

This is a must if your in weston-super-Mare. with great views great food pricey but very nice Sunday lunch £19 for three courses two courses £15 and £9 for children.
The service was excellent considering we had two very difficult toddlers with us staff were very attentive and very observant.
We even considered moving over next to the restaurant because of the beautiful views and beautiful walkways

Had a super meal here taking advantage of the early evening offer of two courses for £15. The menu choices are nicely different - fresh, seasonal food at its best and made even better by the glorious late Summer sunshine! All of our dishes were really delicious and beautifully presented. The staff were helpful and polite. Our return meal is already booked!
