We took our Americans friends here on Friday and everyone was delighted with this place. Bright, friendly and quirky. We all had the seabass and it was first rate -the best seafood I have eaten in ages. The staff are polite, friendly and knowledgeable . We were lucky to score a table upstairs and I can well understand why this place gets packed out. Great fish and great value . Highly recommend.

Dropped in for lunch again and were lucky to find an empty table. Best to find your own table first then go back downstairs and order your food. My wife had the crab cakes which she said were delicious, I had the smoked sea bass and picked it clean. Brilliant place for that different lunch, always busy, certainly not your usual restaurant / cafe but well worth a visit.

The food is fresh, locally caught, and to die for. Get there early, it doesn't book and runs out of food as it has limited storage. You get squashed in on rainy days, if your party is large, but does have ouside dining if dry. It's an old fishing place and has such character. Staff climb a ladder to get up into up the storage in the roof. But the limited space is worth it.

Good value gourmet food, lobster is at a very good price and salads are top notch.

We make a pilgrimage to this place each summer when visiting friends and family, but get there very early to make sure we get what we want, and that includes a custard tart baked on premises and when it's gone it's gone. It's no wonder there are queues to get a table.

Really good, fresh, unpretentious seafood served in a pretty, unpretentious way. This is a cafe, not haute cuisine. But if you are ok with that, you won't be disappointed

Great location by the harbour in the stunning East Neuk village of St Monans. Right on the pier overlooking the water is this fabulous, quirky little place. If you can find a table outside or upstairs, you order downstairs then head up. The lobster & crab salads are super fresh & bursting with flavour. The smoked potato salad that accompanies them are superb too. We have been 4 times now & love it.
