Amazing food! Menu alters daily depending on fresh availability. Local fish served. Staff very helpful and attentive. Go to great lengths to make you feel welcome.

We had lunch here during a walk around the town. The ambience, the service and the food were excellent. I had mussels in wine with garlic and they were the best I have ever tasted. Highly recommended and in the centre of town.

Good food served by very friendly staff who make you feel welcome. Always appears busy and was not able to book a table over the phone. You may have to wait .

Not dog friendly, although like previous answer I would imagine guide dogs would be permitted. However, unless you are seated on the ground floor, there are many steep steps to the upper seated eating area, even more to the... More
