The food and service was excellent. Crab, Mackerel starters so tasteful.
Mains of Cod and Sea Bass very flavoursome.
Waiter very polite and caring.
Not the cheapest place but in my mind great value for money.
Note some people moan about the wait for the food but the menu does clearly state all food is freshly cooked and there is delay.
Well worth the wait and any way who wants to rush a brilliant meal.
Looking forward to our next visit.

Thank copperbird94

Very very nice waiter, very polite.

Food disappointing.

£100 for two of us.

Apart from the young lad who waited on us it felt it had a bad atmosphere.

Have been here a couple of times before this visit and honestly could not fault them at all. We were lucky enough to get a win down seat looking out over the marina. The staff are super attentive and the food is fantastic. Lovely atmosphere - the place is quite small but this just adds to the intimacy and great personable service. Will definitely be back!

After what seemed like a never ending trip from London on Good Friday, we got lucky!Our local taxi driver pointed to a small place down an alleyway. We would have walked right past it otherwise on our hunt that day for a seafood meal.
The place is small, perhaps 20 tables or so, with a modern fisherman’s hut feel.
We went all out and ordered the seafood platter for two. More food then we shamefully were able to finish. All fish & seafood is local and you can really taste it. The crab was the best my husband has ever had. With big chunks of sweet delicate flesh rewarding him with every crack. I loved the lobster, although do wish there was some garlic butter to go with it. The only element on the platter that could have gotten a touch better love were the scallops. The service was made by the lady running the show. Some people are made for this industry. She made us feel very welcome, was efficient, filled with recommendations, warm and no matter how much she was running around a genuine smile never left her face. This place was like a warm hug for our family on a drizzly cold night, and we left with belies full, big smiles and one sleeping toddler.

After looking thru TA - as you do - for a seafood restaurant we decided on this place to celebrate our Anniversary. The key points I need to share are: The service - really attentive, helpful, obliging and friendly, nothing seemed too much trouble (complimentary gluten free bread and dishes adjusted to be cooked without garlic.)They are a real credit to the restaurant. The portion size is large (and I eat big) which ive found is unusual in seafood restaurants, most of the meals come as a duo or more i.e fillet steak n king prawns or a trio of fish fillets or plaice & prawns or crab/lobster and ...... you get the idea, so you get plenty of seafood cooked in lots of different sauces. The cost is on the higher side, equivalent to the Michelin rated Elephant rest next door but the food - quality and amount - and service are worth it. We togged up a bit but found that many didn't dress up which is a shame but I would rather over-dress than under. The view is attractive, overlooking the harbour. We will definitely visit again, the seafood platter looks like a challenge! My tip to the owners/chef is maybe add a Gumbo Pot style dish (fish, crustaceans etc in a thick spicy tomato sauce) or a bisque to the menu if possible? Highly recommend and will be back......
