The restaurant has all the ingredients for success and we went there on a Tripadviser rating. However they were out of mussels, the curry was disappointing but the hake was fine, the service was okay, and the creme brulee good, but we won't hurry back.

We thoroughly enjoyed our return visit to this local gem. Full of atmosphere and serves excellent food. Helpful and friendly staff. Limited but good wine list, mainly local wines. Good value and definitely still worth a visit.

We ate outside because the restaurant was busy - it was a cold evening and they gave us blankets. We did not really enjoy our meal but would give it another try - perhaps next year.

The hake was definitely not fresh (tasted like it was cooked from frozen) This was disappointing because really enjoyed the vegetarian curry and seafood curry here on a previous visit.

Our evening got off to a bad start with our booked table unavailable and we waited for about 25 minutes without any offer of a drink. When we were seated finally the first couple of things we wanted were ‘off’ and our drinks didn’t arrive....More
