Warm welcome and great food. Local lobster was outstanding and the recommended wine an excellent choice. Couldn't fault any choice between four of us and great value. Won't be waiting ten years again to come back - probably no more than a week or two!

We are glad that your wife enjoyed her meal, but sorry to hear that you don't feel yours was to the same standard, the sardines are grilled but they are served with red onions, fresh herb leaves and local plum tomatoes, which may be simple...More

I have had lunch here twice recently and each time had the half lobster, once cold with salad and once hot with garlic butter. Both so good that next time I will find it difficult to choose.
