Tapas Portions are tiny and way too over priced for the amount of food you get. Disappointed as the portions and food down stairs are much better. Will only be ordering food from "Pipel restaurant" not the tapas bar.

First visit under the new management. Sutton's Beach Pavillion. Breakfast menu is limited but interesting and the Shakshuka and the middle Eastern Style Eggs Benedict were beautifully presented and delicious.

Four of us visited this restaurant in the bay. We were attended by friendly and professional staff. We chose to take a beer before selecting the Calamari and octopus. It was really good and excellent value for money. Well recommended
