Great food, more of an upmarket place. Not the usual choices on the menu, a bit different. My colleagues and I all enjoyed our meals very much. We even went back the following night!

By recommendation and after reading their colourful advertising card at the Info Centre, we went on Tuesday morning to have breakfast. The girl behind the counter said"we don't do breakfast today" Either their advertising is wrong or the girl was mistaken. No sign of any further communication or apology, we looked at one another and left.

Perhaps one has to ring and find out what they are actually serving on any given day before bothering to go along.

Groovy little den on the way into Portland, looks fairly non-descript from the outside, but charming surprise once though the front door. Delicious calamari and heavenly Thai beef salad, topped off with tasty fries and yummy aoli and relish. A little put off initially by having to pass through a cloud of cigarette smoke generated by staff members hanging around the front door, but this had no impact on the dining experience here after. A must if you're passing through town!

We both enjoyed our fish meals on the dinner menu. My fish of the day was cooked very well, perhaps a tad too much hollandaise sauce but it was delicious. The homemade tartare sauce on my husband's plate was also very tasty. Our choice of dessert was presented really well, very creative and tasted delicious. This is a more upmarket place than a pub so meals are more expensive. Wine list was adequate, we enjoyed our choice of white wine.

After reading the reviews we were looking forward to our lunch at this restaurant but although the food was ok the service was unbearably slow - there seemed to be only one person in the kitchen preparing all meals though there were other staff around
