Really lovely oysters and and crab croquettes. Nice chilled atmosphere and friendly staff. The wine menu was great - well worth bringing out out of town visitors to.

My son and I had fantastic oysters, octopus, dumplings and Tuna here. My husband's and daughter in law's squid and turbot was well below par. Not consistent, but full marks for no music. What a relief! We had a lovely window table.More

Wonderful selection of seafood, served by friendly helpful staff. Can go wrong with the mussels. What can be better than being on the seafront on a sunny day eating seafood.

Top quality food and decently priced. Would recommend to anyone for a nice dinner. Restaurant is quite small but makes it feel quite personal, really enjoyed the experience, will be returning soon!

For the prices your are paying you would expect something special. There was no wow factor. The service was average, some meals arrived 5 minutes after others had arrived which is not good even though the restaurant wasn't busy. We just felt that the restaurant...More
