Great oysters, fantastic local fishes in different preparation modes. Tasty wines and great desserts. Kind personnel inclusive the owner lady. The premise is surprisingly small, so prebook before you come. We loved it!

Had 2 large prawns for starter and kob fish with noodles. Coffee cake for dessert which was just fantastic. Only negative is that it is quite overly priced so wouldn't revisit however staff were very welcoming and helpful.

Good quality fish served, service was great. Quirky little place. Book ahead via your hotel. Two courses were around £25 pp.

I e-mailed. Lady owner responded but late saying TripAdvisor kept giving e-mail address for reservations despite her saying it should be by phone. She was very nice and i did get a cancellation. Bottom line is use phone.

Quite close. From MQ to main road, turn left, about 200 meters turn right and it takes 10 to 15 minutes easy walk. The guys at MQ will give you a map if you ask them. It’s worth going, it really is
