We (2A, 1C) went here over the Christmas period. A gem of a restaurant, small, pretty, tucked away, a wide range of brilliant starters, main courses (mainly fresh fish) and desserts. Very friendly service, lovely with children, reasonably priced as well. I would definitely go...More

The service, the atmosphere, the food - everything was very good! Definately a place to go if you love quality fish and seafood dishes. And it's better to to make a reservation especially for a dinner, as it is a rather small resto.
