We had a great evening and were looked after brilliantly. Food was delicious with so much to choose from - I will have to come back as I really want to try the vindalo octopus and the chilli swordfish failing that please can I have the recipe. Thank you

When we arrived we were told that there was "no crab or lobster due to recent heavy storms", this was rather disappointing but we thought it strange because the Frary stall only a hundred yards from the restaurant was selling crab and lobster. We also noted that the couple sitting at an adjacent table were eating a crab salad! Both of us enjoyed our starters of tempura prawns and scallops. However we both had the Hake loin which was a very disappointing small portion no bigger that 2" by 4" at the most. Hake is not an expensive fish so why such mean portions? We probably will return if only based on a previous dinner experience but we might need some encouragement.

A fantastic dining experience. The care and attention Kelly (front of house) and Scott (head chef) and their staff is sublime, as is their take on seafood classics with a twist (my seabass with crab and chilli linguini) and their wines and gins are incredible. Cannot praise this place enough.

It always really good here. Kelly and team do a terrific job of looking after all their diners and the variety of food, especially the specials is excellent. This time the octopus vindaloo was the pick of the bunch!
