First time here, food was excellent, mussels, steak and hake.

Booked a table for Wednesday lunch time. Very nice young lady served us and was happy to chat as the restaurant was quiet when we arrived . We decided on the three course lunch time special menu which was not only exceptional value it was also exceptionally good. The mussel chowder was excellent with lovely large mussels in their shell. The main course of whole Brixham plaice was perfectly cooked and very fresh . For dessert both the sorbet and the sticky toffee pudding were extremely good. All in all a perfect lunch in a restaurant with a view and lovely staff.

Lovely setting, right on the seafront. We sat outside on the terrace. Only drawback was a few cigarette ends on the floor by our table. Not nice when eating. Staff were very attentive and helpful so alround good service. Food is cooked to order and is excellent quality especially the fish which was perfect. We had the lunch menu which is really good value at £13 for 2 courses or £16 for 3 courses. Will definitely eat here again.

Food was great.
Staff well trained.
Table in the back was dark.
Did not like the policy of 2 hour seating. Felt a bit under pressure from frequent reminders of leaving time.

This was the second time was visited in a week, we came back for the seafood 5 course menu.. all courses apart from the main course was delicious.. I was not keen on the John Dory.. I was not aware it was not served as a fillet.. not sure I would have ordered it other wise.. my husband enjoyed his mackerel, so overall the kids and my husband enjoyed their meals.

Lovely night. Monkfish dish was really really good, would definitely recommend. Dessert was disappointing so might miss on that next visit. (Crime brûlée n doughnut?!)
Overall atmosphere was good, all staff very nice and gave good service.
Will go back for sure.

Food was amazing, nice location and good attentive service.
Raining when we visited so found the flooring totally unsuitable and dangerous. Would benefit from from a rug to absorb excessive water. Partner and waitress nearly slipped several times.
