Lovely food, really lovely setting and very intimate. They were initially fully booked but rearranged things to accommodate us at short notice so we were delighted. Had a really nice evening after a long day spent at the University open day

Hey, Guys We had a great time; the only reason I gave you some 4s was due to you running out of creme brulee, Haha. The food was fantastic, Freja was very responsive and courteous in her emails back and forth and Billie was great as our server and really looked after us!!! Thank you to you all!!!! Naz

The broccoli on the tapas menu was a huge disappointment. Everything else was delicious! The service was on the slower side but made up for by the fact that the waitress’ were incredibly friendly! Great place for tapas on the water, just let down by one tapas dish

A pleasant venue with friendly bar/waiting staff. Good quality food. Unique experience dining on a boat but the acoustics mean it can get very noisy when busy. All in all I'd highly recommend it. Accessibility could be an issue for some.

A great night for 16 of my daughter's friends for her 21st birthday. We went with the Chef's selection set menu, there was more than enough food, arrived promptly, hot, freshly cooked and delicious. The service was great and efficient, both beforehand with the booking process and on the night. Thoroughly recommend.

We loved your restaurant and had a great evening with pizza,tapas,cocktails and deserts oh and starter platters were yum !! The staff were lovely so nice and chatty and helpful. Two of our party were celebrating birthdays and we could not have picked a nicer place, that’s it now every year we are going back for the birthdays. The atmosphere was great and even the next table were chatting to us they were from Liverpool and they loved your boat too. Definitely recommend it to friends loved the food, service and atmosphere. Thank you to everyone who made our night a night to remember Perfect x

We had a reservation for two at Sunday lunchtime, and we proceeded to order 3 small plates each + a bread and hummus starter. The good: - Both the ham and cheese croquettes as well as the crab croquettes were great, well-seasoned and flavourful; - The brie and pear salad was fresh and vibrant. The bad: - Although it was fresh, the hummus lacked seasoning - it didn't have any salt and thus was lacking in flavour. The terrible: - The lamb skewers... oh boy, where to start with those. We decided to order two, as we liked the sound of them and wanted one small plate for each. My partner's dish was overcooked to the point that the meat was chewy and had a horrible texture, while mine was underdone to the extent that entire chunks of the skewers were raw asides from the surface of the meat (my partner later said that, after leaving the plate at the table, the server told the chef "Those were underdone" and the chef responded with indifference). Furthermore, the seasoning mixture used for them is absolutely horrible - the meat manages to have no flavour and at the same time be so spicy it hurts! - The calamari was one of the worst dishes I've ever eaten: it had no flavour at all, the aioli was bad and the tempura was so greasy that, as a combination of that and the undercooked lamb, I spent a good 10 minutes vomiting upon arriving home. Never again.

Always happy with the cocktails. This was the first time we had eaten here. We had five of the tapas dishes and they were all delicious! The staff were very friendly and the atmosphere was as lovely as ever!
