Our friends booked this place for the four of us three months in advance as they know how booked up it gets! Booking is definitely recommended for a weekend, but I believe you may be lucky to get a weeknight booking nearer your preferred day....More

Went three times on our recent holiday, but we had to book a couple of months beforehand. Just as good as previous, a bit cramped inside but a lovely atmosphere.

I understand you to book way in advance, well not knowing we turned up and got a cancelled booking This was one of the best seafood meals I've had and the service was great. A little expensive but worth it.

Simple seafood - prepared and served well - excellent! The restaurant is busy, crowded and fun. No fine dining here, tiny tables crammed in - kitchen roll napkins - friendly efficient staff. A really enjoyable evening. The food is the star!

This is the maddest most joyous wonderful place I've ever eaten in, anywhere. The booking system is eccentric but works: they tell you when you can come! First impressions are that such a tiny room cannot possibly fit us all in but like something out...More

We were able to get a last minute slot for 1 hour. What can I say, wow is an understatement... A limited menu of shellfish but what a fantastic place. We had scollops, muscles with a Thai sauce and beautiful garlic prawns. The scollops were...More
