Stopped in here for a leisurely lunch with a colleague and was really glad that I did. We had a reservation ahead of time, and it probably wasn't necessary, but we visited during the holiday when most of the natives are out of town. The set menu had something for every taste and diet at a reasonable price. The fish was cooked just, with the skin seasoned so perfectly that I ate every bite of it, and normally I'll leave that on the side. Attentive service in a classy environment.

Nice menu with some good fresh fish options. I had the seared tuna steak which was very well cooked, however the salad that it was served with was pretty much just a bowl of tomatoes and onion which was disappointing.

Food was good overall but very slow service meant that we were waiting for a long time to order and even longer still for our food to arrive despite the restaurant not being that busy.

Visited early on a Saturday evening having been to a matinee performance at the theatre. The restaurant was busy even at 6pm. The waiter was welcoming and friendly yet not over intrusive. The service excellent as was the food. Some reviews have criticised the portion sizes, whilst not large, combined the courses are more than enough. Each course was obviously prepared to order and were presented well, the wine list offered a good choice, overall a very enjoyable experience. Would recommend.

A really nice, cosy restaurant with great food and friendly service. I had the pork belly main - crackling was cracking. My girlfriend had the steak which was cooked to perfection. Definitely worth the visit and the price wasn’t bad either
