This restaurant was recommended to us and we were pleased we chose it. Food quality was high and service was pretty attentive. There were a couple of issues but they were very well addressed and we felt most welcome. Would definitely visit again

Thank Nigel G

The restaurant is crammed with tables which means there is very little privacy/intimacy. You virtually join the people sitting next to you. As a result, service is slow due to numbers. However, waiting staff are pleasant. The food is mediocre at best. Watched the chef take photos on his phone of meals going out - not particularly hygienic and not worth the pictures in all honesty. Over priced and over rated, there are better places in Dartmouth.

We had dinner here on Wednesday 13th Sept, the fish was excellent, we sat next to the window in the kitchen and watched our fish ( whole Brill ) be cooked by a young very competent chef, it was then fileted at our table for us, all a great experience to watch. Their is a lovely buzzy ambience in the restaurant and all the staff were great, they all seemed to have a nice camaraderie between them.

I believe the fish is all caught locally overnight and delivered fresh in the morning.

The Scallops were overcooked and almost burnt, the over cooked portion of John Dory for 3 was almost good enough portion for 1. This used to be my favorite resturaunt in the world hands down. This the third time of going recently and it keeps disappointing. I want the old seahorse back :(

There are few really good restaurants in Dartmouth and this is definitely one of them. The service was good and the food excellent. Being relatively small, the pressures on tables is high and we experienced a delay in taking our table at the correct time. Overall it was a great evening and well worth a se old visit.
