Sadly, we were the only table in all evening on a cold February night. However, the welcome and food were definitely hot! Great choice of dishes, with constantly changing seasonal specials. You experience something unique here compared to other eateries locally. It’s nicely and sensitively...More

Went in on the off chance at 6pm and we were lucky enough to get the last non booked table and I can see why. Great food and very reasonably priced wine. A great little restaurant

Hi, yes we do gluten free pizzas and can do pizza without the tomato sauce. As the base takes more time than a standard base it would be helpful if you let us know in advance. If you don't want a tomato sauce topping we can... More

A small restaurant in the heart of Seaton. We serve a wide range of Tapas and make changes to the menu each month so you can assured of variety! Our desserts always include a small selection plate where you can try a selection of 5 small dessert samples! We are fully licensed with a range of fine wines. We also use locally sourced produce whenever possible and our meat comes form Norman's the butchers next door. This is an eatery with atmosphere and great ambiance. We also offer a cocktail menu every Friday night. Booking recommended
