Exquisite meal: crab claws and sea bream are a must. Essential booking and bring your own bottle. We will be back..

My wife and I ate here during a week away and loved it. The seafood is, as you would expect, incredible and the local beef was equally as nice. Lovely staff and a very relaxed, informal atmosphere.
