    Slightly pricey but it's totally worth it. I had crab risotto and mullet soup and it's some of the best seafood dishes I've ever had in London. Really nice atmosphere and totally worth the money!

    I come to London very often and have tried so many restaurants but this was one of the best. The location is incredible, you are one step away from the Tower of London and Tower Bridge but the atmosphere is that of a marina on the sea. The food is great: the scallops were delicious and so was the taramosalata We also ordered an excellent wine from Sicily. Everything was perfect Thank you

    Fish cooked to perfection, friendly and accommodating staff, the best fish restaurant in the area, but book in advance as there aren’t that many tables inside and they have no heaters for sitting outside in cold weather.

    The food is very good and the seafood fresh, but the portions are small and the service is quite slow. Outside space is great overlooking the marina but unfortunately the outside terrace closed at 9 so we had to move inside to continue eating. This is not the restaurant’s decision but the marina’s residents, however; we should have been told at the time we make the reservation and not when we are already there.
