Once again, excellent food and service. We had Bertha grilled octopus risotto and deep-fried calves brains for starters. Then Bertha grilled kid goat chops, lemon sole and braised tongue. Faultless. Large enough portions. Great value for money. Will return.

The best lobster in my (quite extensive) international experience. A menu that is different, and interesting. Friendly staff. Unusual wine list! Just delicious.

Is this restaurant dog friendly? We would like to visit one lunchtime next week but would have our dog with us.

I guess it depends on how well behaved the dog is ? Personally restaurants and dogs don't mix but give them a call is my suggestion they will be helpful if they can - but the micro brewery pub may be another choice just... More
