I love this place! We went on a Tuesday so it was quite quiet but the greeting was very friendly and, most importantly, the food was excellent. I had the Thai spiced pumpkin soup which was delicious and subtle and followed it up with a wonderful fish stew full of mussels, clams and fish, it was very good.....other dishes included... More

Two years had passed since our last trip to Hastings but the New Year's Eve menu seemed the perfect excuse to return to this restaurant which was so good on the previous occasion. For New Year, the menu was set at three courses but still with a very broad choice of dishes. As it turned out, the kitchen worked at... More

I have been a loyal customer for many years. The food is beyond excellent and the waiting staff are knowledgable and helpful in relation to dishes and accompanying wine. By far the best seafood and steak restaurant for miles around. I have never, ever eaten here and not been completely blown away.

So many restaurants think that a Christmas menu is an excuse to produce rubbish and rip their customers off. Certainly not the case here, we had a lovely meal here on Saturday with beautifully cooked food that actually tasted like it should. Great food and exemplary staff. This has really inspired us to revisit soon, a point that seems lost... More

Although very nice food lack of vegetarian options and had advised beforehand the bubble n squeak I had was the size of a starter. Waited ages ordered a coffee never came. Shame seems to have lost sparkle. Not French red wine!!

A lovely restaurant serving fresh sea food and unlike some Michelin star restaurants, decent size portions. Difficult to fault. Staff are exceptional.

By coincidence the previous reviewer was from Valencia,Spain.I also live in the Valencia region and was visiting friends who live nearby in St Leonards and Rodmel. The waitress was welcoming and had reserved us a table for the 3 of us in the window. The restaurant is only small but stylish and modern. We decided to go for the set... More

I hadn't been recently as although the food was always good, the waitress this year was a bit dour, but there has been a change. Today's waitress greets you with a smile, nothing is too much trouble for her, and the food is unchanged in quality. So, what do we have again - a truly top notch restaurant, with a... More
