“Great seafood”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

A great restaurant for food, service and presentation. Despite being very busy, they were turning people away in droves, there was no sense of being rushed so that they could have your table for more diners. Very good value and excellent food.

“"Fantastic Fish at reasonable prices"”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

The fish at The Shelin is outstandingly fresh and very well cooked. Calamari, Hake ( to be particularly recommended ) and monkfish were enjoyed with a delicious bottle of Pinot Grigio ! The brown bread ice-cream was not as generously delivered as the fish - one scoop only (?) together with vanilla in the same bowl - it would have been great to enjoy two scoops of it on its own as it was so delicious !! Service very friendly in general, although a younger member of staff could perhaps do with a little more experience ! ... but not bad prices and we'll definitely return.

“Great dining in Waterville”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

This is a great place to eat in Waterville and a bit more upscale. Great traditional menu and attentive staff. The place was mostly reserved for the night as it was Saturday but our hosts found us a table for two by the window which we really appreciated. Location is great off of the main street so quieter dining although you give up a view of the water.

“Fish may aswell be alive its so fresh!”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

I highly recommend this resturant they know what there talking about when there selling fish it is so fresh and full of flavour.

This is a great little spot and I see they even do tapas now too! Yum.. The table space can be a bit cramped but overall there is a nice decor.
