Came here a few months ago, after a gap of a few years. The food was that good, and we enjoyed it so much, we booked again for last week.
Again, the food was really good and the atmosphere was buzzing. This place is seriously packed on a Saturday night! Really! We had a nice table, and the waiters showed the usual level of service, without any of the fuss that I find irritating. They do what they need to and leave you undisturbed the rest of the time.
This place hasn’t changed for years – the fish is all fresh and on display, you pick your fish, sides, and salad bowl selection etc. It feels rather brasserie-style old-skool, but it works, so why fix it! Blackboard menu always has specials and 2 course bargains,
My meal was fab! Halibut in wine and garlic. Prawns avocado (old – skool) to start.
My only gripe was the 'much louder than necessary' music – Julio Englessius type stuff. It was a bit annoying. Other than that, buzzing place, obviously doing well. Will be back!
