“American style eating - no jet lag !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2012

We'd heard a lot about the place and decided to pay a visit. Always a lottery in this part of the world in the school holidays but the place was none the worse for being busy and bustling. Service was very prompt and polite... Welsh speaking staff front of house made the place feel homely straight away. I was reminded of small town American eateries - full of families enjoying communal eating - not a bad thing. Food was not spectacular but very enjoyable and nicely cooked. The beer was excellent locally brewed real ale. Bill was around £50 for two. But who cares eh ? Cracking surroundings and given the place's background you could eat with a social conscience. Excellent idea with a real quality feel to it. Will be back soon, hope you keep it open over winter. Check out the paintings on the lower floor...guaranteed to make think. Reservations in a limited part of the restaurant - no need to book elsewhere.

“Fab food, stylish surrounds, great value, smashing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2012

Visited here with my wife, her sister and husband and really enjoyed the visit. The building itself was beautiful, especially on a sunny evening. Saw a review about small windows.... they have floor to ceiling sliding doors so dont worry about being too hot on a sunny day. The food speaks for itself, would rival anything you would expect to find in a top establishment, and a good quantity of it too!!! Service was great, friendly, as others said these guys are neing mentored towards a career in the industry so may seem a little over enthusiastic (in a good way I must add) and they are efficient.

“Excellent modern restaurant- a breath of fresh Welsh air”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2012

We visited for Sunday lunch with friends ( who are suppliers of the wonderful ice cream served here)
The venue is light and airy, very modern with fabulous views.
The service was excellent, attentive but not intrusive.
We all had 3 courses, drinks and coffee and our bill for 4 was £115- good value for the quality and presentation of the food, the fish in particular was gorgeous and the cheese board a meal in itself!
The owners and staff should be very proud of this excellent project

“Best not eat outside on a hot day”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

Our group decided to have a meal on the veranda on a hot sunny August day. Big mistake.
It appears that the design of this unique Huff House restaurant also includes provision of storage area and cellars directly beneath the veranda, and with the gaps in the decking we were constantly wafted with a combination of vile rotten food smells and faulty toilet or sewage systems. Obviously this is probably not an everyday occurrence but it’s something guests need to take into account when deciding to eat outside. We weren’t too struck on the warning sign about flying ants either.
From what we saw, the interior reminds us of a noisy office canteen rather than a sophisticated place to eat.
The food and service was acceptable, but overall we feel that the Oyster Catcher is missing personality.

“Swish and modern with great views!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

Only been open a few months and still very clean, modern and sharp in terms of decor. As it was a warm sunny day, we sat on the balcony (allow dogs) and enjoyed the great views over the sand dunes. Our 8 year old enjoyed the garden and soon found some friends to play football with. We found the service fine, there was plenty of staff, and the food was very good. What makes this restaurant a bit more special, is the modern style, but also the great location. After the meal we were able to walk over the sand dunes and spend some evening time of the beach. Lovely.
