    The food was good. Maybe a bit more info on the menu on what exactly you are ordering would be helpful

    That was our 2nd visit. We suggest signage on the door to close door well as we got a blast of cold air constantly. Food was delish and we were seated earlier than our reservation!!! Yeah!

    Amazing food with amazing service can’t go wrong. Even if you don’t like seafood there are options for everyone. I had the seafood linguini 10/10!!!

    I clearly had too hi an expectation for this meal but it was clearly the wrong time to visit. Easter Monday Night and staff must have been burnt out. That said they were polite and actually the reason we didn’t just walk out. Tables hadn’t been cleared, place was hot and smelled like a fish market - not restaurant - on the walk through. The menu was totally unexpected from what I had reviewed online. Steaks were expensive 33+ - way overpriced - and nothing else looked good value. We Ended up with Muscles and chips to share in the end which was OK. Chips weren’t down as Belgium double fry but clearly were… saves waist I suppose?!? So steak and Musc. Box not ticked. Don’t mind paying for a nice dinner (Witchery for us the following night and the Ivy / The George’s Steak room for all other meals) but this is CLEARLY geared at “get them in/out” and turn as much as we can from visitors. Again staff saved this from a walk out but it was the lowest of our Easter Hols experiences on this trip.

    Seafood chowder is amazing!!! Shellfish platter not recommended, it comes with mostly mussels, one single prawn, one single scallop, and three tiny calamari rings :( .. Toffee pudding very spongy and fresh! Staff are lovely
