The menu was extensive and offered wine and beer. We enjoyed a beautifully baked bream with vegetables in a light wine sauce that was incredible. We have stayed... More

The place is really charming as you seat in front of the main boardwalk facing the sea! But what is really special about it is the great variety of food!

According to me this is the best dining spot in the whole of East London, and might be very high on the list of the best in the whole country. For some years now, this restaurant has been my dining spot every time I'm in East London. Each time I visit, I find it to have improved from the previous... More

Received a warm welcome with no booking we were still accommodated. The food was excellent from the starter to the dessert. Will recommend the tiramisu and the lemon meringue. The pasta was amazing. Would recommend this restaurant for fine dining.

We enjoyed a very special evening here with very special people. The menu choices are wide, but every dish was beautifully presented. Our waiter, Benjamin, was very attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. Our group spanned 7 to 70, but we all had a lovely meal.
