On reading previous reviews we went to Mint this week. Not that impressed. Would not recommend this place if you are hungry. Food was cold and not a lot of it. The 'potatoe dumpling' was uninspired and surprise, surprise roast potatoes arrived in seconds when...More

Lovely cosy restaurant with fantastic staff and wonderful food. View of beach is limited so would need to request those tables if you really wanted to look out but didn’t bother us at all. Cost was very good for what we had.
