Absolutely charming, cosy restaurant with a great atmosphere, we had the captains platter for 2 which was to die for. The seafood was amazing and even the rice was cooked well and very flavourful. Great wines and service too, can’t fault it!

It's valentine's evening and we just want desert. They said it's closed even though it's half past 8 and they don't have place for us although there is lots of space to sit every where. So disappointed!

We ordered the fish and chips, it was was a good size and tasty, but nothing great! The chip was delicious, the side salad was nice but no dressing. Did expect a bit more.

Maybe I just ordered the wrong thing - but found the food all fried and not very tasty - the starters were similar to the main course and expensive. Disappointing to say the least.
