We booked this before we arrived for our short break. It was also rwcommended by Rob our hotel owner. Glad we did it was fully booked night We went. I had halibut sweet potato and asparagus and my husband had monkfish linguine.
I finished with a delicious cheesecake. Complimented meal with nice bottle Portuguese red.
Sadly the restaurant has been sold. The family also have Crustacean across road. Our Italian waitress confirmed she would be working there when Manbos changes hands. Sadly we were only in Weymouth three nights so couldn't fit in another visit.

I would have rated this as good rather than average had there been such a category, but couldn’t say it was ‘very good’, hence the ‘average’ rating! We enjoyed the starter of scallops in parsley and garlic butter sauce, only four small scallops each in a lot of sauce, but they were nicely presented in a large scallop shell, with bread on the side. We then had halibut, unusually served with sweet potato mash. We chose the halibut as it is one of our favourite fishes, and now is unusual to find on a menu, or even in a fishmongers. It was nice, though maybe slightly overcooked, and actually we would have preferred ordinary potato, though we did enjoy the dish.
The waitress was very pleasant, though her strong accent (Italian?) made her difficult to understand! She laughed with us that we had both chosen the same dishes, saying at least we wouldn't have “food envy” of each others choice!
All in all a pleasant evening for our wedding aniversary meal.

We had a lovely dinner at this restaurant. The fish dishes were excellent! The portions are great and the service is superb! It is a small restaurant so it is best to reserve. The Stone bass was excellent. They also have gluten free options.

on arriving asking if they have a table available, would it be possible to have the window seat, the very polite Italian waitress would if available say yes, if not she would recommend we came back later, upon arriving later our coats are taken and hung up when seated she would bring the menu and wine list still smiling, we would order our wine buffalo ridge, and on occasion a starter, nothing is to much trouble for them they are very chatty,and always seem interested in there customers all the main courses are excellent the sweets are also excellent it is a small but cosy restaurant with a nice family feel to it.
