We've been before and will go again as, in our opinion, it's the best restaurant in Porthcawl. The fish and meat is laid out on display in the chiller cabinet for you to choose. The scallops, giant prawns and fish were very fresh and tasted delicious and the fillet steak was very good indeed, tender and again delicious. A much... More
