We were wandering around looking for a place to have lunch when my husband saw the sign for oysters. We headed over to the quaint building (resembles a residence) & peeked through the windows at the plates within view. We entered & were seated promptly...More

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.
