The salt & pepper squid was to die for, as was the Malaysian Curry for main. Wine (Chenin Blanc) matched well and the service was friendly & effective. Only suggestion would be for raspberry crime brule to maybe have the raspberry within/under it rather than just piped on top.

Fantastic food. Everything tasted so fresh and it was great value. Felt like a special meal but not at ‘special’ prices. A real find!

I had the red bream with spiced potatoes and smoked aubergine. The smokey taste of the aubergine dominated the dish unfortunately, and the potatoes tasted more burnt than spicy, perhaps because of the smokey flavour of the aubergine. But the bream was perfectly cooked. Unfortunately, my partner was not happy with his fish pie. The dish was quite small. Also, there was a shrimp sticking out of the top, but on closer inspection it was just the shell... We thought the shrimp meat might be inside the pie, but there was none. It was also quite expensive (the pie in particular).

Very nice and enjoyable experience. Food was excellent, good choices and very well prepared. The waitress was very helpful and warm. Overall a memorable experience. Only downside was the restaurant was quite cold but the waitress arranged for a heater to keep us cosy!

Outstanding fish and seafood cookery, delicious wine and excellent puds. Service was lovely. We ordered snacks, an extra starter for the table (salt and pepper squid, described by one of our party as ‘the best squid ever’) and would probably have liked to order the whole menu. So much more than a great neighbourhood restaurant, just a great restaurant. Packed out on a Tuesday night for a very good reason. Go, if you can get a table.

Easy to get a table but the place filled up fast so glad we booked. Food was well presented and a good choice of dishes though we did not try a dessert. Too full after starter and main course. The snack I had as a starter (padron peppers) excellent and reminded me of a recent holiday in Spain.
