This has a lovely location, tucked away on the beach, and a real 'beach hut' atmosphere, complete with fishy decorations. A great seafood lover's menu, as well as the classics (crab, oysters and mussels) there are the catch of the day specials which show that this restaurant makes the most of whatever the boats bring in. I went for herring,... More

Excellent real fresh fish and seafood. Scallops, crabs and mussels a speciality. Rustic setting with views over Chesil Beach. Good service but not fancy . Book at peak times since very busy.

Lovely informal setting, I dined alone and felt compelled comfortable inside the shack all dressed down. Waiting staff were personable, efficient and knowledgeable. The menu was excellent. My half dozen oysters au naturel tasted like gulps of the sea - unbelievably good, meaty, slippy and mouthfuls of memories. Was trying to recall the taste this morning - exceptional. Went down...

We turned up without reserving a table on a beautiful sunny March Saturday lunchtime & although the chef was obviously working flat out we were accommodated and had one of the best lunches we have had for a long time. We sat outside in this lovely setting by Chesil beach enjoying the oysters & crab. The service was excellent and... More

Had a lovely birthday Sunday lunch in this amazing little cafe right next to the lagoon off Chesil Beach. Overlooking the oyster beds which produced the delicious oysters for our starters. Great staff and the most wonderful fresh fish. Thoroughly recommend both the oysters and the fresh crabs.

Amazing seafood and excellent service. After hunting for a decent seafood restaurant we stumbled on this online and it was like being abroad. Excellent value for money and highly recommended

It's all in the name. A delightful fish restaurant dedicated to offering the best locally caught fresh fish. The oysters come from their own farm. If you love fish this is a must for you.

Thoroughly enjoyed my birthday dinner here. I particularly liked the oysters. The cafe environment is not fancy but the service & seafood is excellent.

I just loved this meal and it was probably the best part of my holiday. The menu is very good, just fish but it's done so well. The wine menu accompanies it beautifully. The interior was very comfortable and the staff were amazing - I just couldn't fault this in any way.

Went back for Sunday lunch, and it's still as good as ever. Even on a dull February day, it was busy; luckily we'd booked. I had oysters and crab, specialities of the house, and both as good as I've had anywhere. The other half had scallops and hake, and he raved about both. The only slight niggle was the pudding,...
