Been here twice this week! Delicious seafood freshly prepared. I love how they don't have certain menu items when the tide isn't right, showing that their food is fresh. Excellent service and food, highly recommended!

The restaurant looks very nice and placed in a 180 years old cottage. You have to pre order as the place was full despite the rain outside. Food was very good and so did the service although it was a bit slow.

we had no booking but they managed to fit us in for a quick meal; it was lovely, with really good seafood curry, platter for two, with nicely done fish. Sadly no time for desert... maybe next time!
