“If you like fish, this restaurant is a must”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

A lovely little restaurant with beautiful wooden floor and stunning pictures. The owner was a very friendly australian gentlemen and his waitress was equally friendly and polite. The food was absolutely amazing. The crab and prawn in lemon mayonnaise to start was stunning. The red mullett on seafood paella was delicious - so tasty. The vanilla panacotta with sorbet and brandy basket was a wonderful end to a wonderful evening.

“Best meal we have had while in the UK on holiday”
Reviewed 27 June 2014 via mobile

This place lives up to its reviews, honestly it's the best meal we have had in the UK, the Owner is Australian and personally welcomes guests. Service was fast and friendly - the food was really excellent - anyone that likes a bit of spice should try the Cajun swordfish - complemented with a chive and cream sauce it's complex but spicy aftertaste is great.


Strongly reccomeded but you MUST book in advance !!!!!

“Fabulous meal”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

We had a superb meal here. There was a good choice and a great wine list to compliment the meal. We were informed that the menu changes constantly, which is refreshing.

“Proper seafood restaurant”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

My husband said the crabmeat and prawn salad with pickled cucumber was one of the best starters he ever had. Prawns were lovely too. Both had sea bass for main and lovely. Tiny restaurant.... so book. Only wish they had proper coffee machine as espresso would have finished the night off perfectly.

“Be prompt or be bumped”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

In summary, the food, wine and level of service was very good. Considering that there was only the owner and his young lady assistant at front of house, everything flowed flawlessly. In talking to the owner about his reputation on Tripadvisor, I commented that he had a below average review strike rate (less than 3 rating points) of about 1% (put another way, 3 - 5 ratings accounted for 99% of reviews) which is staggering by any measure. He remarked that some of these poor reviews were from people who arrived late to dine and he HAD to refuse them entry to his restaurant, because a late arrival would upset the balance and quality of service to other diners (esp following diners). His kitchen could only cope with food preparation for blocks of 6 diners at any one time. The owner refused to compromise on this policy. Obviously, this part of his business model resulted in happy diners.
AS a post-script to this tale, one member of staff at our hotel explained how in the past, she had tried to book a ladies dinner evening for 8 of them, only to be declined because the restaurant could only accept groups of no more than 6.
