I like the tapas style option on the menu, it fit very well with a sunset and a glass of wine on the open terrace area.
Service was attentive.
Disliked the still/sparkling water pricing as you don't get a bottle, just a glass of your choice.
Very clean and modern.

An over-view:
On a Sunday lunchtime:
In short the food was well cooked, the staff care is a little relaxed, If it's persona is a chilled Beach environment then it's slightly over-priced and perhaps pretentious.

The food:
My starter: Grilled Mackerel & Potato salad on Ciabatta slice; was well cooked, fresh & simple. It also arrived with a mixed bread basket and butter/olive oil+Balsamic vinigar dip, nice and FOC.

Main course: Breast of Corn fed Chicken with Saffron Risotto and dressing; Again well cooked.
I felt that both courses were lacking an ingredient or component part, they were very nicely presented but portions are of a small (simple) size; you won't go away from.here feeling bloated!

I did not have time to enjoy wine by the bottle and had a refreshing pint of Stowford Cider, Nice.
I can advise that beer options are limited, many good beers are available up the road at The Smugglers 500 meters away (suitable for pre-meal drinks?).

The staff noticed that I was taking an intricate interest in my meal and the menu, and a manager made considerable effort to make sure I was personally happy with my visit; reasonable effort in my opinion!

I have an interest in environments and ambient feel, I do wonder if on a warm Sunday or afternoon/some evenings if this establishment would benefit from some simple live music (perhaps folky/alternative musicians (Solo/Duo acts)) that might contribute to the relaxed beach vibe?
I would return but should be considered a bit of a treat due to price.

Fantastic view and the food looked good.
However, we were ignored for 20 mins whilst sat outside, not even offered a drink.
A waitress did come up with another food order, but I think it was for the adjacent table who had left after waiting too long.
Could see another waitress chatting with her friends inside.
Therefore, we left and went elsewhere.
