“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014

Seriously if you are eating anywhere in Brighton it should be here. Waitresses are fast and really friendly. Owner cares about how things were and it is not uncommon for her to ask. Been 4 times in the past month and a half and it is now our preferred place to go. Menu is limited however I believe that is how such great quality of food is delivered. Everything we have had was perfectly prepared. Perfect little place. Oh and the tarts are awesome also!!!

“Great little spot with a wonderful view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

I have had lunch at this spot several times over the past few years. It is a fabulous little secret on the water. Great food and a wonderful view. The service is very good, friendly service. Really great desserts. Lots of variety and everything is good.
