Being rather fussy when it comes to fish and chips I only order them in places that are likely to do them well, and they certainly lived do so here: perfect crispy yet light batter and beautiful fresh cod. The crab samosa starter from the specials was also very good, as was the service and ambience of the restaurant. If... More

There were 19 of us who went for dinner on Wednesday 30th November and we all loved it. The décor was bright and eye catching and the food was well, just absolutely stunning.

Two of us had dinner here last week midweek. The staff were excellent . A good ambiance and the food was pleasant . I know it's the off season but more fish on the menu would be nicer .

Recommended to us by a friend and didn't disappoint. Hearts sank a bit in seeing queue on arrival but only 5 minutes before we were sitting down & waitress warned of 20 minute delay before food as quite busy. We didn't mind & asked for a round of toast to keep us going served promptly with butter marmalade & jam.... More

We sat outside at the end of November on a gorgeous sunny day and had excellent crab sandwiches. The staff are brilliant here, really nice and helpful. Inside looked lovely too.

This is the sister establishment to the one in Ringwood. They have different menus and the one on Avon Beach is larger and generally full of beach walkers. The fish and chips with prosecco is devine.

Being the owners of a no1 rated TripAdvisor restaurant, it takes a bit for us to be impressed. From the warm welcome on entry and then on to our waitress Natalka's (hope I've spelt that correctly) understanding of the menu (my wife has food allergies) then on to the stunning food (who cooked that seafood Thai curry?....stunning,) combined with really...

Visited this restaurant on two occasions this summer and both times were really enjoyable. The beer battered fish I had on the second visit was absolutely sublime and I couldn't fault the service on either occasion. Really nice food with a great view too!
