The service was impeccable and the way my guest was treated on her birthday was truly something! We will be back and the food was too die for.

Thanks for letting us have a day too truly remember!

Food interesting and greatly improved relative to two years ago - we look forward to going there again. A little cool inside (slight draught) but it was a very cold day - wear adequate clothes in winter (not a major issue, hardly noticed).

One of favourite restaurants. Service is impeccable, food is incredible and the view and vibe is perfect. Our two little ones are always taken by watching people fish on the pier and the kids menu is amazing. Everything about it is perfect.

Weather was much better than we expected so it helped us enjoy our window seat all the more. We've been here many times before and the experience has always been a good one. Having an English husband who loves his fish and chips made the menu selection easy. I joined him as well, enticed by the sound of the triple cooked potatoes. They didn't disappoint and neither did the well cooked fish.

A table was booked for Sunday lunch at 1.30. Food was great, staff were attentive and friendly. Unfortunately had to wait OVER AN HOUR for our meal.
Not even a bottle of wine or discount on our bill was offered. Very poor!

Lots of great things about our experience but our meal took 45 mins to arrive. Fortunately this wasn’t a problem as we were enjoying each other’s company . Also one our our group needed the disabled bathroom which proved difficult as the baby change table could not stay up and meant one of us had to hold it up till the person entered which was embarrassing for her.
However overall we greatly enjoyed our visit.

The setting is lovely for a day time catch-up . But the food was overpriced and basic cafe fodder. Vegetarian pumpkin steak was so small and so expensive we complained . All we got offered was an extra side dish .

Very disappointed with the new menu, I bought a large group of friends expecting the food to o be great which we had before. The new menu was confusing (fish and mashy peas) was unusual on the palette, the soft shell crab with squid ink needed a sauce and more seasoning it was very bland.

My second visit and was disappointing! The menu seemed to have been reduced to only a few main options and only one special available.
Service was quick and we were in and out in an hour, felt a little rushed!

Repeat visitors when guests in town for the amazing location & super friendly helpful staff. Arrive early in winter so you can appreciate the outstanding views and book in advance for summer, tho there are good walk in options. They have just changed to winter menu from which we enjoyed the carpaccio, seafood platter (this doesnt include calamari so order a side) and sticky date pudding.
