Booked a table for dinner, requested a table and was asked if I'd like to book one indoors as well in case the weather turned which I thought was an excellent offer, and much appreciated. After ordering we were served complimentary bread sticks and crab...More

We ate there three days in a row we liked it so much. The crab was fab. The mussels were really good as were the fish and chips. We had the NZ Sauvignon blanc and it was all very reasonable. The service was just right.

As the title suggests. We stopped for lunch and had crab sandwiches with crisps and a couple of beers and have to say they were the best I have ever tasted. Not cheap at £11 each but worth it.

We popped in here for lunch on a whim and we're so glad we did. The restaurant is small and intimate with a lovely atmosphere and the outside has a spacious seating area. Try the oysters, they are some of the tastiest we've ever had....More

We popped in for lunch on a Sunday a couple of months ago. It's set in the lovely area of Discovery Quay and the interior presentation of the restaurant is really nice. I had the crab sandwich and my Girlfriend had the prawns and bread....More

Unfortunately not, but your welcome to eat outside with dogs as there's plenty of seating (I work in the sister restaurant).
