What a fantastic find this place was!
Called in during the afternoon to book a table for an evening meal for 6. Shown round the whole restaurant by an exceptionally friendly & professional member of staff.
They collected us from our local hotel & offered a lift back but we decided to walk off a superb dinner.
Starting with complementary fishcakes & garlic bread to die for the food was superb some had meat & some fish, all beautifully prepared & presented with ample portions & plenty of fresh veg. Deserts were mouth watering & wines superb & wait for it, all at a reasonable price!
Will be going straight back on our next visit.

We enjoyed fresh local fish (like Espada and Bodiao) and various seafood starters.
A great taste and fair prices....

We fancied having some local fresh seafood and this was the right place to go! Complementary fish cakes for starters, followed by a fish platter and then another complementary liquor, so despite it being slightly more expensive than elsewhere, it was well worth it. There is a large fish tank on display in the restaurant with crabs, lobsters and crayfish in, so if seeing this would upset you reserve ahead or get in early to sit away from it. Overall a great experience.
