    I had a very lovely birthday lunch. The food and atmosphere was great and the staff couldn’t have been more attentive. A lovely afternoon, topped off by a marvellous sunset. I’d highly recommend this restaurant

    My new favourite restaurant. Everything was perfect. Food, ambience, location on the beach and the lovely people that worked there. I had grilled mackeral with salsa verde my friend had pan fried ray wing with hollandaise. We shared chips, green salad and tomato salad. All delicious. Washed it down with a nice bottle of vinho verde. Can't wait to return.

    Ramona and her colleagues were excellent from welcoming us in to settling us down, taking the order, serving us and making sure that everything was fine. It was our anniversary and they took the time to wish us a Happy Anniversary. The ambience and decor were very welcoming and it was busy but at no time were we left waiting and the staff were constantly on hand to look after us. The Catch of the day was very enjoyable and the desserts divine! Our only concern was the acoustics which made the noise levels rather high and difficult to hear at times. Overall, a very enjoyable experience and thoroughly recommended, thank you.

    This was our first visit to Little Rock and we had an early evening booking . The staff were all very friendly and welcoming which was a good start . We had scallops to start with which looked so good served in their shells on a bed of seaweed . I had the Ray wing panfried in caper sauce and my partner had the cod cheeks . All perfectly cooked and beautifully presented . We finished with plum and apple crumble with custard . Delicious!!

    Everything from the moment we entered was great, asked the chef for best recommendations and she was more than happy to run us through what fish to go with our starters, then the waitress recommended a perfect wine. Nice friendly relaxed atmosphere. Brilliant, cant wait to go again.

    We went to Little Rock for my wife’s birthday and it was one of the best dining experiences we have ever had. We were a group of 4 and from the moment we walked in to the moment we left all of the staff were friendly, chatty and most importantly attentive. We had Oysters to share that were amazing. Between the 4 of us we had a range of mains from Mussels and 3 catches of the day, Sea Bream, Lemon Sole & Skate Wing all cooked to perfection. Unfortunately they didn’t have the Lobster Mac & Cheese which initially I was very disappointed about but it made me try the Lemon Sole and I am now glad they were out of the dish I wanted. Will be going back very soon for the Lobster Mac & Cheese however. Would definitely recommend to any Seafood Lover. Truly a fantastic place to eat.

    Cod cheeks are no substitute for simple cod and chips, and the price is too high. Chips, where appropriate, should be included in the cost of the main course. Otherwise, pleasant and helpful staff and a nice ambience. Noise levels too high for easy conversation, could be reduced by introducing some soft furnishings perhaps.

    I am a regular and love it in so many ways but it was disappointing to be greeted, yet again with hello, please sit down .. followed by a long list of ‘we haven’t got …. This included oysters, langoustines, champagne, ale etc etc. We were booked for early Friday evening, not last orders Saturday night. The food and drinks we had were great but there must be a better way than to promote a menu but so regularly run out of staples in a seafood restaurant and greet customers with such a negative.

    The restaurant is absolutely first class the location, food, staff and service cannot be faulted. I would definately recommend eating here . The only down side is that the wash room facilities are not attached to the restaurant. They are a short walk away and used by many visitors to The Harbour Arm, note they aren't maintained on a regular basis so toilet paper and tissues are not always available! It would therefore be a distinct advantage if the restaurant could provide there own facilities.
