Good seafood, good service, very busy at weekends, a good sign! Can recommend the hake and chips and mussels, and for non seafood eaters the steak, egg and chips. Good value for money, lively atmosphere, a fun stop for lunchMore

We enjoyed our meal immensely. The seafood was fresh and the service was attentive. The views of the harbor are lovely. The servers were formal and professional, yet friendly. I hope to visit again.
