    Food really good .... lovely fish of the day which we all had. Only problem was out of towners (men on golf tour) who were unnecessarily loud and inconsiderate to the other diners. Service was very attentive and pleasant.

    We found this to be a lively place with friendly and efficient service. My scallops were cooked to perfection and my partner enjoyed his oysters. I had the linguine as a main and loved the mackerel that came with it. The mussels were good too. As always for me when dining out, I appreciated the concise menu. A handful of dishes cooked well beats a massive menu of mediocrity hands down. I concluded with the ‘solero’ desert. Excellent ??
