This lovely cosy restaurant is so inviting upon arrival. We aren't the biggest seafood eaters and so were worried we wouldn't enjoy our dinner but thought we should try this place as it was so highly recommended. Our food was excellent. I had the special...More

This is a truly fabulous seafood restaurant. We ordered plaice and sirloin steak, which was absolutely delicious! It's our third time here this year and it always exceeds expectations. I would definitely recommend to come here on a sunny day or during a sunset as...More

Do we need a reservation?
