Stopped for lunch when visiting this lovely village and chose this place over the very busy pub across the road. We were not disappointed in any way. Service was very good, the crab sandwich I had was too and there were fantastic views of the beautiful rugged coast line from our seat at the window.

the Casquinha de siri is a surprising hot crab starter which always delights; the staff are very attentive, as is the owner; helping with advice to choose dishes which originate in Brazil. Try anything from the menu which is not familiar and you won;t be disappointed. The owner told us that if you order something and it's not to your... More

We visited the restaurant during a large family holiday and had a booking for 20 which was fabulous. We were welcomed by the owner who made sure we were fully looked after and who seated us all personally. Most importantly, they really looked after my wife, who is coeliac, where they cleaned down the kitchen and organised her food away... More

What a brilliant place. They smoke their own Craster kippers which are amazing. The lovely lady who is front of house is so friendly. As well as the kippers, try the smoked haddock salad, the paella, the tiramisu. Great views are the icing on the cake. Thank you! Afterwards walk along the beautiful coast up to Dunstanburgh Castle.

I can understand some previous quarms expressed about the service on the telephone when trying to book a table and frustrations about the restaurant not being open. However, this restaurant is so good that they only need to open for a few hours per day for a few months per year. It's actually rather frustrating for those of us who... More
