So glad this place has been taken over and renovated. Outside is nothing special but inside is a mixture of modern and earthy with sea themes. Overlooking the sea with the fire set in pebbles was a very cosy experience. Although I didnt eat there (I will be soon), the menu looked excellent with breakfasts, lunches and evening meals. This...

Couple of small points. My wife ordered moules and frites but they brought fish and chips. They made amends when bringing the moules by teling us there... More

The refurbishment here is beautiful and the upstairs function room is lovely, with its own balcony looking out over the sea, it will be a super spot for a special birthday party or wedding reception! I had the Cod & chorizo dish which was very tasty and my friend had the mussels which was a very nice size portion and... More

We went to the Minnis on a Tuesday lunchtime in March with another couple and were so disappointed. We always used to visit the Minnis when friends visited but not so sure we would now. We waited ages for our starter and then again for our main meal. A waitress came up and asked if she could get us anything... More

The ambience was perfect with a relaxing atmosphere. The service was fantastic, attentive waitress and very polite. The menu is very unique with lots of delicious options for everyone. I had the lamb... More

We stopped here for a cup of tea, then looked at the menu and decided to return in an hour for dinner! Very good choice of dishes, well cooked and served all day. Lovely atmosphere and charming staff. Would certainly recommend.

We (a birthday party of four) were eagerly awaiting the re-opening of this restaurant. We took our table (pre-booked) at 1pm. The waitress took our order soon afterwards as we ordered our drinks. Our starters (which were fine) finally arrived at 1.45pm. Then we waited.....and waited....and waited. After a little prompting, at 2.30pm, a different waitress came up to us... More
