No services at all. We have called for the menu, bottle of water and even paying the bills need to wait for 15 mins or so. We have ordered the platter. The food is below average and some prawns was a bit mushy or rotten kind of taste.

I took a colleague from the uk to the drunken admiral for dinner tonight and was shocked with the rude, surly and dismissive attitude of the staff, especially when I asked to be moved from the doorway of the noisy kitchen - several other customers were complaining about the service as we walked out. i cant recommend this restuarant

We loved the food in this restaurant with its OTT nautical decor. Service was excellent. The staff worked well as a team. Our fish and seafood arrived on sizzling stones so it's up to decide how well cooked you want your food and we were given generous bibs into the bargain. Would definitely recommend.

Loved our visit! The seafood was fresh and tasty. We opted for the hot stone at the table which in hindsight probably wasn't a great idea given our clothes smelt like a fish monger afterwards :( however we weren't put off! Great range (probably too much) and reasonable pricing. Probably best to ask for a table away from the bar... More

Food wasn't too bad, good for a group of young family because of the creative decor and atmosphere. Oysters and seafood chowder were excellent entrees.

We've been in this place with its unique figures. You think you are on board a ship. We had oysters, a fish pot, salmon, a clam chowder and dessert of which all were of fantastic quality and delicious. The staff is very friendly too. worth a visit

Had great food even know some of the meals were wrong but happily replaced. Here comes the however. On the way out when going to pay the first person in our group going to pay was told they would not split the bill even after she question it she was told no. So she paid the lot. When I said...
