Meal was booked by somebody else so did not know what to expect. Lively place with friendly and efficient staff. The food was superb. Would strongly recommend the mussels and veal. Very conveniently placed for the Cliffs Pavilion, Casino and promenade. Will definitely book again.

Excellent menu with a large number of daily specials ( both meat and fish). Nice and busy and good to have pre booked. Parking outside was full but a public car park is only 200 yeards or so away. Food excellent. Veal chop perfectly cooked.
