Visited for lunch on Saturday with my wife and small dog. Great service and food, and my wife loves the cocktails. Both had Poké Bowls, me tuna and my wife the beef - amazing. I love these. Shared a lovely cheesecake which was lovely. A...great lunch - thanks 😊More

When we arrived the staff were amazingly receptive and were incredibly attentive to us. They were politely observant and beautifully mannered, and I cannot credit them enough!! Now the food… This food is insane!! Please please please make time to come and visit this little...treasure of Porthcawl! The menu is constantly changing and the food is always fresh, which makes sure that we’re never bored. I just can’t recommend them enough.More

Top tier of a restaurant. Comfortably, easily and more importantly the best in the county. Look in the mirror, then look away. Now look back in the mirror and question why you haven’t been there. Enjoy it and thank me later

I cannot speak highly enough of every part of our experience here, from friendly and helpful staff who went above and beyond to the best vegan food I have had since I became vegan 2 yrs ago! Thankyou for making our evening so good

Had a lovely evening here whilst on holiday, right on the sea front. We opted for the Tapas and had 6 dishes between us that were all delightful, especially the calamari. We stayed there for the evening as the atmosphere was lovely and staff very...attentive. Well worth a visit but book beforehand as it is small and busy.More

We've been here for brunch a few times now because it is so good and today was no exception. I'd come here for the Bloody Marys alone. Amazing value and a brilliant Bloody Mary - absolutely spot on. Generous and served in great glasses. These...alone make it an outstanding brunch spot. All the breakfasts (we've tried every one I think now!) are so good that it's the kind of place where you struggle to choose because you want them all. Any dish with the sauté potatoes on is magic - no clue what potatoes they use but they're banging. The steak with the umami ketchup is moreish as, and the veggie and vegan options are gutsy - all the breakfasts feel extra special. The size of the toast slices means you'll cope with any hangover! Just as much care and attention goes into the coffees too so if we're not feeling a boozy lunch, we know we'll enjoy an extra special coffee just as much. However, we think the bar is a stand out and reason alone to visit. We had the dirty martinis today, and it was a star of a cocktail. All the details have clearly been carefully thought through to make a fragrant, coastal martini beautifully prepared and served by the sea. We couldn't believe our luck to have something this special on our doorstep. Stunning stuff.More

I’ve taken my dog to the outside seating area but not inside. I’ve been there numerous times but have never seen dogs inside.
