Six of us for family Birthday and again the whole experience was exceptional. We had a variety of starters and main courses all prepared and served faultlessly. My mixed seafood starter was spectacular and the stone bass one of the best fish dishes I have had. Can't recommend enough.

To be perfectly honest the prices are extortionate and you can get just as good if not better seafood elsewhere. I can't work out what warrants the price tag as the seafood is mediocre..

This place is unique. If it was in London it would cost a fortune to eat here and restaurant critics would be fighting to get in. Thing is, the owners and the chef don't care about all that, they just love sourcing and serving great fish dishes and if you're a vegetarian, vegan, carnivore, gluten intolerant or generally picky then it won't be for you. They serve great fish and seafood with no concessions, and that's it. The restaurant only has 15 seats and it's like going into your aunt Winifred's sitting room. It's cramped and there's a lampshade that must have been there since 1950. Who cares. The food is sublime with the lobster lasagne a real stand out sensation, not to mention the local oysters. The service is matter of fact, maybe even a little grumpy but nobody cares because the food is stunning. But guess what? If that isn't compelling enough, you can bring your own booze, they supply glasses for you and don't even charge corkage. I could go here every week, but unfortunately it's really difficult to get a table. I wonder why?

If you like fresh seafood this little gem is the place to go. Nice intimate location in the middle of Whitstable. Great Crab and famous Oysters.
