Had 2 evening meals here, both delicous. Service very good and prices reasonable unless you had the fresh fish which was offered at the table.

A platter of whole fresh fish is brought to your table, so you can see what your ordering. One family member found the benches uncomfortable to sit on , for any great length of time. A nice meal but not the best I have had...More

Hi I am also not in charge of reservations. Just phone them or go in. They are usually open for lunch. The fish is great. Ate there twice in last 2 weeks whilst on holiday.
