No bookings and a relatively brief menu but first class, exciting and fresh fish, great service. Relaxed and friendly atmosphere with selection of high bar tables and window seats, and some outside seating.

We were a big party, the service was ok, however some of the selections were odd, mackerel burgers.....two fish between a burger bun? Grilled fish and tapas dishes not overly tasty. Not sure we'll go back, meals were a bit pricey however not great value.

Lunch. Crispy skin mackerel. Absolutely delicious. Washed down with fine Asahi Japanese lager. Very good courteous service with very good background music not the usual loud rubbish.

This was one our best meals out. The Monkfish was so tasty and the chips crunchy. Will be going again as soon as possible.

Had the best meal of our stay in Penzance here. Best to book a table as it is quite small and gets full quickly.
