Everything was just delicious! Our second visit and want to come again already. Special mentions for tempura oysters, deep fried squid, crab linguini and the hake. And the fabulous peach pud ... oh and the lovely wine and excellent advise on what to have. Very special.

Lovely evening. Really well looked after and the menu fully explained and advice on how to deconstruct a crab! Excellent quality and lovely informal atmosphere. Table next to kitchen - so a little busy. Toilets down steep stairs but fine.

Perfect every time. I have been lucky enough to eat at Oystermen on a number of occasions and it is never less than excellent. I am not an oyster eater - except for the tempura which I would happily devour by the dozen - but this doesn't matter. The fish dishes in the menu are interesting, fish as fresh as it comes and have always been cooked to perfection, the hake on this occasion was succulent, moist and full of flavour. Chips (for me without seasoning) were just yummy as was the side salad. The dessert of poached peach, I cannot remember all the elements, was heaven, delicate and flavoursome. Service was unobtrusively attentive, relaxed yet professional. Can't wait for my next visit. Just love it.

Service wasn’t great. Unclear who was our waiter for at least 10-15 mins after being seated, not offered a drink. A man who I assume was the owner (with a beard and baseball cap) walked past several times without making eye contact/speaking or saying hello which I thought was poor given it’s such a small restaurant. The fresh oysters were nice, would have been improved if were served in a proper oyster tray with ice as the tables just weren’t big enough to accommodate the plates (10 were brought on one plate and 2 on another plate) it was all a bit haphazard. Oysters need to be served properly. The cooked oysters - buffalo tasted only of spice. The fried oyster sounded nice but in reality only tasted of fried batter , the actual oyster was completely overwhelmed. The sea bass was excellent. The halibut was nice but needed more sauce as it was a bit dry. Bread portion was tiny for £4.. should have been at least 2 Moreno slices, especially if the bread comes from Paul (we saw it being delivered) then we know how much it costs and what kind of a profit £4 gets the business if you only give 4 half-slices per portion! Overall, charging top whack prices and I didn’t think the service demanded the 12.5% that was added to the bill (£30). Interesting experience but won’t be returning.

Je n'avais plus mangé d'aussi bonnes huîtres depuis des années! Ensuite, l'assiette de cuttlefish était simplement sublime. Excellente ambiance bistrot, un peu bruyante. Le personnel est très gentil, et serviable. Je reviendrai certainement.
