My Dad used to live on the island and my family had raved about this place for years. A few years ago I thought I'd see what all the fuss was about. The first thing that struck me was the simplicity of the menu. Chicken chips salad. It doesn't sound like much but the taste! The spicy Chicken was a... More

The experience was a bit of a shock to me - but I would go back. And I recommend the experience. You can have something like - chicken plain, chicken garlic chilli. Maybe a third chicken style ...I can't remember. Don't expect a menu. They just do basic food, really good. Food/Salad is fresh - But DAMN! Onions are going... More

Steve and co. make the evening with a running commentory /jokes throughout the evening. I don't eat chicken on the bone so make do with ample supply of salads, chips and bagettes those in the party who do eat chicken all enjoy it. There is nothing else on the menu its simply plain or spicy chicken pieces.

If you like Chicken, proper chips, good salad & wine, this is the place. We had seen this place when visiting Fettuccine's which is in the same street, its a casual affair with a mix of tables. They only serve "Chicken" but the do it rather well. The owner is very chatty & has been running the business for over... More

Although it is hidden away in the alley a busy place that does what it does best. Great street food no fuss, no menu just a choice of chicken with chips or salad. Lovely freindly atmosphere, chicken was not dry, chips homemade and a decent bit of salad.

Booked a table for two based on great reviews and we weren't disappointed. It's unique that's for sure! Steve the host is a real gem. The energy he has is infectious and he has a great rapport with his diners. No menu or price list. Just a baguette, aioli, plain or spicy chicken, chips, salad. Very good food...the aioli was...

Don't expect much choice at this restaurant. It's either chicken or spicy chicken with chips and beer or red and white wine. Having said that, the food is consistently excellent and plentiful and the service superb. Expect to be entertained!

Love this place and go whenever we are in the area. It is what it says it is, chicken, chips and salad, no need to peruse menus or think too much, just decide on plain or spicy and how much you want! The chicken is always nicely cooked, hot and never dry. The chips are proper home made ones and... More
