One of the best fish restaurants I've ever visited, and I've been to a few. Cod was grilled to perfection. Portion sizes for starters and mains was ample. There was no room for dessert. Staff were efficient and attentive. 5 Stars.

Our first visit for a long time - had forgotten just how good this restaurant is. Delicious fresh fish - generous portions - and excellent service. They offered us the dessert menu but we were much too full to eat anything more!
