A top lunch spot for wonderfully fresh fish and shellfish. Ten different specials including best squid ever. Cleverly chosen and very reasonable wine list accompanied by friendly efficient service. What’s not to like? Rarely have I found it so easy to give a 5* recommendation

We went here last Sunday night.i had the potted crab/lobster to start with.Unfortunately, it was very dry and not helped by being served with hard,toasted French bread. However,my fresh crab main course was delicious.

Second visit to this restaurant and again my overriding impression was of a menu that I wanted to work the whole way through. In the event I opted for Sea Bream with pea and prawn risotto - oh and a cup of chowder to start....More
