Wonderful seafood restaurant, service was impeccable and friendly, we even got a doggy bag offered to take home our left overs as we'd ordered too much.
The scallop with cauliflower and crab and mango salad are highly recommended.

Great food, service and ambience. Very good level of hygiene in these Covid times, which was reassuring. Don't be put off by the short menu, be encouraged, they know what they're good at! If I lived in Canterbury I'd definitely go again....

Outstanding food. We had a wonderful evening with a very helpful and attentive waiter. The food was excellent, and the Kentish wine very drinkable. Clam chowder followed by Turbot with scallops, with a special helping of invisible chips, was just heavenly.
