Lovely seafood but very very small seating inside so we had takeaway, the lobster lasagna was outstanding and other seafood dishes were very good

A very small restaurant with a long waiting list for the very good reason that the food is superb. They have no liquor licence, so take your own - there is no corkage charge. The menu is not extensive because they serve only the highest quality locally sourced seafood and vegetables, but we were all delighted with what we had at our late (3pm) lunch. A must for seafood lovers.

Went for the first time with a Spanish friend. He was extremely impressed. The three of us sat at the bar and enjoyed a selection of seafood and took our own wine. Can't praise it enough!

Really small restaurant, very friendly staff and amazing atmosphere.
Seafood was beautiful,tried the Mezze for starters,followed by crab lasagne. Obviously freshly cooked,beautifully presented and delicious
BYO wine,and you need to book in advance(aprox 6 weeks)
Well worth the effort to book for a special meal
Cash only,just a warning!.

Having visited this restaurant for many years. We were utterly disappointed by the quality of the food. The oysters we were served were off . The smell was revolting and should have been detected before being dispatched to the table. To my amazement when I pointed out the condition of the oysters they said they wouldn't charge us for them. Unbelievable attitude .The halibut I had was salty. Although the lobster lasagne was reliably good. Such a bad experience. Also doesn't cater for vegetarians bubble & squeak and boiled veg with an egg was the height of the offerings to one of our party. The egg wasn't cooked to the specifications twice. Sorry Wheelers but you badly let us down.
