We had two courses (chilli squid, fish n chips, crab, mussels...all... More

Visited recently as part of a group, warm welcome upon arrived and a great choice of food on the menu. The host gave great wine recommendations, had the sea bass followed by the creme brûlée. Great value and would visit again.

Very reasonable prices, set menu of 5 courses £39. Had scallops and sea bass, both gorgeous. Other half had squid and fish pie, again very good. You do need to book in advance but well worth a visit.

I took my mum to lunch here as she is a major fish lover - it did not disappoint her! She had Calamari to start and she said it was perfect and so fresh - we then both had the Fish & Chips, I can honestly say it was the most delicious fish and chips I've ever had - even... More

A colleague recommended this restaurant to me as a must for when visiting Brighton, we opted for the taster menu containing 5 courses which I feel was well worth it and very good value for money. Saying that I made it 6 courses and took some Mersea oysters before my starter also. The restaurant and environment sells it self, it... More

I ordered fries to go with my fish because there was no mention of any potato dish only to be informed 5 minutes later by the... More

What an awful dining experience, over cooked Sole swimming in butter..... impossible to remove the fish from the bones! My partners fish stew was ok but served with a solitary mushy... More
