    Incredible food. Service spot on - dogs welcomed- children made to feel v welcome. Location a delight.

    Menu outstanding - we ate here three times and hands down the quality was the best in the region. Lobster fresh local and perfectly cooked. Oysters enormous and delicious. Fresh asparagus with a duck egg so fresh and perfectly seasoned. Steak spot on- cooked with just the right amount of grill smoke.
    The dressing on the little gem salad was one of the best I’ve ever tasted and I’m a dressing addict.
    Loved you could see the outstanding chef and his small team at work - the little Kitchen garden outside pays homage to the fresh local focus. This is a gem of a place with the perfect balance of causal atmosphere coupled with outstanding food.

    Absolutely excellent. The only problem when it filled up noise level was deafening . Better to go early for meals

    Absolute gem of a place. Delicious food and great staff

    Different dining experience with sharing dishes but very enjoyable. Beef,mackerel,chicken skewers,prawns,sea bass, lamb chops dishes all excellent. Little disappointed with the size of the sole-not the best and very small for the cost.
    Could have done with a wine list as a little awkward trying to sort out what we would like without seeing what is available, it wouldn't take much to print one up!

    Just excellent food. Really fresh fish! Take the recommendations of the chef as he knows whats come in that day. The food available for small children was limited, but as our kids like fish we ordered some things of the a la carte menu as all the dishes are small.

    This is the third time we have been here and the first time we booked ahead. Totally perfect lunch. The chef made two vegetarian specials because I informed the restaurant that two out of three of us were vegetarian - in 50 years of eating out as a vegetarian (and telling the restaurant beforehand) that has happened maybe twice in my life. Usually, there is the standard one vegetarian option on a menu - take it or leave it. Not here - so nice. My husband loves the fish here. Everything is beautifully presented and tastes as good as it possibly could. The chef checked with us personally that we liked the vegetarian specials, which we absolutely did - they were delicious and different (not the usual vegetarian offerings). The service is fast and friendly - all totally efficient. Like the open kitchen. The location beautiful. I have eaten in many Michelin starred restaurants and this is of that standard - total hidden gem!

    Excellent food and bit different and loved the small sharing plates
    We visited again only one waitor so lots of uncleared tables and run out of food needs more staff

  • (((** 2 April 2018 by Miles from Port gaverne

    Food was pleasant and well cooked. Staff were equally friendly but a bit overwhelmed by the number of diners.

    Unfortunately the evening was not a success, the restaurant was cold and we were the only diners all night.
