Seafood
In the heart of Bath

Delicious Seafood
Our oysters are so wonderful – they actually inspired us to open an Oyster Bar in Bath! Come and enjoy them for yourself and join our fan club! We receive deliveries daily from the morning’s catch in Devon and Cornwall. Our aim is simple, to give you the freshest, most delicious seafood experience imaginable.

Whether it’s one-off specials from the day’s landings, or our gourmet twist on traditional English fish and chips with champagne batter that will take your fancy, our exceptional menu has something really special for everyone.

The influence from our Italian roots brings you wonderful pasta dishes and for something truly unique you must try our signature ‘Italian Sashimi platter’, prepared using The West Country’s finest raw fish and seafood.​

    When my server told me it was my fault that my dish was inadequate it added the “icing on the cake “ to an overall overpriced dinner for four. In fairness they did comp coffee but even that was cold.

    First time visit here to check it out as maybe a future venue for family gatherings. Food was simply superb ! I had a Branzino parcel of baked sea bass and vegetables my partner had a chicken dish that was also very good! A nice bottle of rose followed with a homemade Tiramisu and limoncello to finish . Service was good and a fair price also . We will definitely return.

    We really enjoyed our meals- salmon and the fillet of the day followed by panna cotta and canolono. The staff were welcoming, friendly and keen to recommend dishes which were delicious. We were full by the end of the evening and felt the food was well presented, great quality and great value. We would love to return.

    Staff were attentive. Calamari was very chewy and tasteless ( missing the squid ink, mayo, garlic mayo as listed in the menu, a good reason to leave a copy of the menu on the table) Other half couldn’t chew it at all) His oysters were enjoyed but what can you do with oysters! He had sword fish and enjoyed it, I had mussels which must have been the smallest I have ever come across as a result no succulence . Sauce was ok. He had a chocolate soufflé which he enjoyed but wasn’t brilliantly presented. Shall we go again? Not sure.

    I cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough. There were 4 of us out for a meal and catch up. The menu choice was varied and we all chose something different. They were all exceptional. The service was very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We will certainly go there again. Thank you to all the staff.

    Delicious food, good menu selection and even the kids enjoyed the fish dishes - which is unheard of in our family. We’ll definitely be back. On the feedback side though it took a while for the staff to realise we had had an order taken because of our position behind a column. For the money this was a great meal but would also be good to have some more options for little kids on the menu or a separate kids selection for families with under 10s.

    Everything was lovely. Our waiters on the night were fantastic. Both myself and my partner loved the food but agreed the portions could be a little bigger given the price and maybe a little less tarragon in our meals as it was over powering in some bites. 10/10 visit overall
