We specialize in fresh fish, delivered daily by local suppliers and we guarantee to always have the finest quality available. Our seafood cuisine is characterized by the simple quality of the catch.

We had a fabulous meal here celebrating our wedding anniversary and my birthday. It's one of the most memorable dining experiences we've had and are really looking forward to returning soon. The food is delicious and the service was perfect. We felt welcome and there was no sense of being rushed. Its is an expensive restaurant but for us the price reflects the whole experience and was worth every cent. If you are into wines you will definitely love it here.
The only minor issue we had was during our payment of our bill and being told they only accept cash gratuity. We had no cash so we had to leave and find an atm and then go back to the restaurant to give them their tip. I find that really strange that they wouldn't add it to our bill, never come across this before.
But as I said, fabulous in every other way and will be returning.

Just perfection - the staff were so kind and helpful, they moved us table so we could finish our drinks even though we had taken a really long time at our table and the restaurant was busy. Exceptional food- everything was delicious it felt just like being on holiday! The kids were super cute. BRAVO.

Booked this for the wife and mother in law. They loved it. A lot of wines out of their price range but the team was happy to present them with a lovely bottle within their budget. Happy wife. Happy life.
