My finance and I dropped upon this restaurant while we were taking a leisurely cycle by the sea. We sat in the outside seating with a view over the harbour and had only intended to have a light lunch. We order the salmon and goats cheese starter and a few oysters. The waitress was super friendly and more than happy to talk us through the wine list or answer any questions we had on the food.
Unlike a lot of restaurants which have extensive over the top descriptions of the food, only to find when the food turns up it is something you could pull together yourself and probably do daily, this was completely the opposite. The menu was simple and didn't do justice to the sophistication and flavours found in the food. The presentation was so beautiful I almost felt guilty eating it!
The goats cheese salad was mouth-watering with goatscheese curd and a variety of beetroot prepared in different ways and textures. The salmon was incredibly fresh and salad accomplishment really brought out the flavours. I would swap my finance for that goat cheese salad any day. it was that good!
Being by the sea, we also shared the 'posh' fish and chips which was a battered salmon, with jersey potato's and a fennel puree (as apposed to the run of the mill soggy peas). I wouldn't have necessarily picked it off the menu by I promise you 'regular' fish and chips doesn't hold a candle to it. - again delicious. We were full but the couple next to us had desert which looked great too.
The chef himself popped out when we were leaving to ensure we enjoyed our food. We were really impressed with his passion which absolutely translates and his evident in his food. Prices were very reasonable and the glasses of vino were generous. Definitely a gem and one not to miss. We will definitely be back on our next visit.
