Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We had sea bream, prawns, oysters all very nice. Food 5/5. Beer & service excellent! It would have been nicer if we could actually sit down relax & look at menu and have order taken from table. Trying to look at fish in counter in...small area with 10 other people is not ideal. Probably wouldn’t go back because it is very expensive for what you get.More

Outrage priced, every dish is double priced. Food is mediocre. You chose your own piece of fish . Every side dish is extra charged . Glass of wine is double in price than in other good restaurants. Feel as you have been robbed

A medium sized piece of salmon, bowl of pasta and a beer £28. It’s a nice restaurant, but very expensive. A similar piece of salmon from Aldi down the road would have cost about £3

Great service and lovely selection of fresh fish dishes. Mussel pot was large. Huge fresh fish selection you can choose from and have grilled with a choice of sides.

Outstanding seafood and service. We enjoyed the mussels and tuna apps. Both portions were adequate (for us) for dinner. Service was not hurried and helpful.

Went here few years ago, definitely wanted to return. Meanwhile the prices have significantly gone up. The food is excellent, the blasting music out of one speaker at the bar a bit annoying, self-service ordering at the bar with sometimes longer waits after people who...choose their fish to be prepared. One appetizer, one fish, two glasses of wine – a bill over 90 EUR for one person. Might rather check out alternatives for future trips.More

The food was very good but expensive and the drinks (prosecco, wine) really, really overpriced. Some of the food (eg oysters) did not have the price listed, it was stated that it depends on the market. Ok, that s fine, but write down the price...of the market for that day… The service was nice but not great for such a restaurant. When we got the check, we asked if the service is included, the waiter said it was, but that the tip is not included… that is odd, because they charged a lot for the service… We paid almost 600 euros for 3 persons. We each had 3 oysters, 2 of us lobster pasta, the third person some grilled octopus,tiger prawns and some fish with fries. 2 deserts. One prosecco (the cheapest from the menu), one white wine also one of the cheapest…More

I eat at a lot of expensive places I really don’t mind as long as the food is worth it! This place is not worth it. The food is sooo basic it is not worthy of the price tag, the “Spicey” shrimp pasta, was not...only not spicy at all, it came with three tiny shrimp, in the most basic sauce ever. I can’t believe what I ended up paying for this basic experience. I could have had a multi layered experience with so many more giving flavours and even drinks at nobu for the price I payed.More

Good place, good food, but over priced. Although the food was good, portions are small. I had mussels, they were small but fresh. The serving was more or less half size of the regular portion served at a restaurant table in Belgium.More

They sell it per 100 gr, they weigh the fish or fish fillet you choose at the counter before cooking, you pay accordingly..A middle size portion would cost 13-17 € . The side dish costs are around 3-6 €.

Sure you can! Just ask the cashiers for an option, like a nice home made pasta with tomatoe souce, or a daily risotto.
