Great fish - cooked to perfection. Lovely atmosphere. Great decor. Very reasonable if you manage to get the 241 deal.

“Like being abroad”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2013

Although not staying at the Cumberland Hotel, which this is part of, we always enjoy the ambience and food here, especially the special offers. On Sunday we dined outside near the pool on a lovely sunny day. It felt like we were abroad, without the flying, so relaxing even though a little cool wind blowing. Try it for yourselves.

“Delicious food, excellent service and good value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2013

We booked this restaurant as a group of eight. It is a stylish place with a touch of the nightclub about it, but we had an excellent evening. The service was very friendly and efficient. I had duck to start and a tuna steak, both of which were delicious. The menu has vegetarian and healthy options clearly marked. There was a special deal on at the time that gave us a complimentary bottle of wine if we ordered three courses so it was very good value. One of our party was unlucky to pick two choices that had already sold out. The restaurant gave him his main course for free as a gesture of goodwill, which was a nice touch. The restaurant is a little walk up the hill to East Cliff but we thought it was well worth it, and the walk is very pleasant.

“I like this place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2013

We were in the hotel next door but had stayed at the Cumberland where this venue is located so we knew of it. Great place to chill out with afternoon tea or a drink. Not cheap but that keeps the riff raff out.
