Came across this lovely little restaurant on our final night (unfortunately). Really friendly staff & cosy. Got some free food & shots but the best part was our main meal, chateubriand for £30. Was one of the best steaks we have ever had. We left feeling very satisfied....and full. Nice work guys.

Lovely restaurant. Felt very local, great staff and atmosphere. Tuna was amazing. Fiancée's sole was fantastic. Fish very fresh as you'd expect. Definitely recommend a visit.

Came here to celebrate my birthday with two other couples and had the most fabulous Chateaubriand , it was so tender you didn't even need a knife to cut it. The service was excellent, and this is definitely somewhere we would come back to.

We asked in the local surf shop for a recommendation and was pointed in the direction of familiar . Just if the Main Street it could be easily missed but we're glad we didn't . The restaurant is clean and well decorated. The restaurant when we arrived at 20.30 was full apart from 1 table who were leaving , this... More
