On a recent first time visit to the Seabank Bistro I was astonished when the time came to pay the bill....35 euros for a three course set menu per person! The starter of goat's cheese was minimalist!The Cod fish and Apple Strudel dessert were both very fresh.Service was good. What a shame that menus of this 'ordinary fare' are raised... More

Based on previous reviews we thought it is worth a try and were not disappointed. It is a small cosy restaurant, with a very nice interior design. The food was amazing too, we took the chicken soup... More

Called at 12.10 to ask for availability at 12.30. They were very positive and we did not need booking. Turned up at 12.25, before opening and they opened up and showed us to a table in what was a very quaint and homely setting. Service was excellent with good advice and recommendation. Goats cheese starter was good as was the... More

We had mussels at lunch time and we loved it. We were to people and we shared a big pot. Was fantastic for a light meal.
