This is a small restaurant with amazing views. As you would expect the menu is mainly fish and it was all excellent. Service was as you would expect for a high end establishment - attentive but not intrusive.

On a dreek day there is no better place to take in the view over Lyme Regis and the Bay. Who needs a Sunday roast when there is great fish and seafood. The cockle popcorn is a must. There is a good wine list too, with the Provencal Rose being especially good! Loved it. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable.... More

Was really looking forward to dining here. To be honest other than the view the restaurant has little going for it. Service was terrible and slow. Wine waiter had never heard of dessert wine (that was a painful conversation) mains - very average desserts - inedible and lacking any imagination.

We went here after driving down from London on a Friday night. It was a shame that it was night time as the views must be amazing in the daytime. The food was nice and fresh, but nothing spectacular. I had the fish curry which was tasty and served nicely with a little heater. But it wasn't wow. The chocolate... More

The building is a balance of "shed meets contemporary glass, steel and decking" poised on an elevated aspect overlooking the Cobb. Relaxed, informal and a light touch on both service and the food. My wife and I are fish and shellfish addicts so, for us, this was fishy utopia. We had for starters, Steamed Lyme Bay Prawns and Lyme Bay... More

Excellent oysters and sole followed by very good cheese and chocolate mousse. Contrary to a few recent reviews I found the staff to be really friendly and helpful. Overall very good the only small issue was that the restaurant was empty by 10.30 so atmosphere was a little subdued.

We had an early sitting and assumed they would have a later one. That was fine. The setting was lovely, beautiful lighting and nice tables. Service was OK, a little forced and a bit too fast - we had 2 courses within an hour. The food was disappointing and a bit pricey. I ordered from their small vegetarian menu (but... More

Second visit here and just as good as before. Good vibe in a bustling restaurant with very knowledgeable waiting staff. My fish pie main course was just what the doctor ordered and couldn't have been any better. Lovely selection of desserts; chocolate mousse an absolute must. See you soon...

Great food for all the family. We had Hakes head, fish pie, bacon with clams, and fish of the day. All lovely . And the mussels were really soft and fresh. A1.
