Service was friendly but slow. Starters are small and over priced. Gyozas were tasty so I expected the calamari to be amazing, but sadly it wasn’t. I had the crab burger which I was excited about but for me, it was too greasy and didn’t pack much flavour. Chips had a lovely seasoning although a tad salty and they arrived cold. I think the location is the key to this place but I was really let down by the quality of the food. For the price I’m expecting to be left feeling “wowed” but instead I was disappointed. The setting is great which is why I chose to go however, be aware that if you get a loud table next to you, which we did, there’s not point attempting a conversation with your own table!

Two of us went for lunch on the Friday of May bank holiday. The food was absolutely lovely and the staff were great. This was during outside only dining, there were heaters around and blankets available too. We were under an umbrella but I wouldn't say it's completely rain proof, especially if it's windy; it started spitting whilst we were there and I was getting the odd bit. Lovely view of the sea from where we were sat and some nice background music. When I booked it would only allow me to book for 12pm. When we turned up there were signs saying 'reservations only' but at the time we were the only people in there! Another table of two joined and it was just the 4 of us for at least an hour so not sure why they were so strict on the reservations!

Great service, we were seated where we wanted to be. The team were prompt, and polite. Let us stay as long as we wanted. Food was tasty, but too expensive for what it was. Wouldn't go again.

Service and food were great. Unfortunately our heater wasn’t working and we were unable to move as there were no other tables big enough.

Gave only the one star for 'Atmosphere' but that was not the fault of the restaurant, obviously, simply due to social distancing and outside tables. Oyster Creek making a good job of difficult circumstances ... blankets if required, outside heaters at each table etc.etc. ... my advise? .. give them a try.

Very nice. We were lucky as the sun was out, but I would think some more heaters would improve things. Food good and service excellent. Price slightly too high, but it was a special event.
