We tried three different types of Oysters, all of them are fresh and tasty, especially with the homemade lime and chilli sauce which was recommended by the owner. The marinated octopus and squid were also great. Can’t have enough, we would definitely back for this~

Description
Well it is that time again, we are off on our holidays. We close on the 14th.October 2018 until late February 2019. We are often asked why we close all winter. Well apart from its very cold & also very miserable down on Brighton beach. We cannot guarantee the seafood is going to be fresh. Sometimes in this period we only see 2/3 customers all day long. The other reason is we need a rest from a long busy season , so we will be fresh to start again next year…
