Prawn was not fresh or overcooked, was hard to peel off. Shrimp was worse. screw got sand inside,very bad texture.
Amazing food and outstanding service, the staff are great, special thanks to JAMAL and JOEL for warm welcome and attention.
Came up from Notfolk for our anniversary and it lived up to our expectations.It was amazing
Me and my misses had a great time for her birthday at the shell. Soon as we walked in the waiter made us feel welcomed! Domenico was our waiter and he done a perfect job... thank you so much! Nice food and worth the money. We will back soon to try the hot seafood.
If you like seafood this is the restaurant for you. They have both hot and cold shellfish platters that will definitely suit anyone. Forget about Fishwork and such like. Not to be missed.
Amazing service , amazing portions , I don’t think was very expensive for seafood , omg the sangria was the best !
The staff was very polite and helpful .
Happy customer , definitely coming back .
Delicious food - huge portions but really lovely.
Really nice restaurant great ambience and even greater food. I love the wide choices of platters on the menu hot and cold (makes you want to come back and try different things). The food is delicious and the garlic oil they used with the platters makes it even more flavoursome. I would really recommend others to dine here as you won't be disappointed by the portions. I certainly will be going back and bringing along some friends/family. Thanks to the chef's and waiters at The Shell 😊
The seafood is not fresh at all.
Fantastic seafood. Super fresh seafood platters that look and taste great, everything was very good. Great value and generous portions.
It was a really nice meal, great service, amazing portions and really delicious! Our waiter was so lovely! Moreover, the ambiance and the music were just perfect for that day :)
The food was amazing. We got a hot sea food platter which was worth every penny and more. We ended up taking half of the food home. The service was amazing. Our orders were taken very quickly and our food came to our table even faster. I would definitely recommend this place for any of my fellow seafood lovers.
The last day of outdoor dining only was met by heavy rain and a staff crew who delivered with good humour and style an excellent meal of oysters and lobster with rice. Cant wait to try the indoor version.
Food was delicious and served in large portions. Server was lovely and friendly and made us feel welcomed. I would definitely come again.
Amazing food, friendly service and very reasonably priced! Loved this place!
Overall a very good experience. Good food, excellent service. No surprise since Portuguese people work hard!
During these dificult times we had dinner outside which was every good, but I feel we missed out on being inside. The restaurant is not to blame of course. We'll come back for sure.
Service was very good, nothing was too much to ask of the staff and they were extremely attentive. The food was fresh, flavourful and served in generous portions.
I was worried about outside seating due to it not being hot but with the blankets and heaters provided by the restaurant we were nice and toasty.
Would definitely recommend.
Service was poor and had to look for someone to confirm my booking and seat my friend and I, even though there were only two other tables. Food was good, but the seafood rice was more of a seafood broth with some rice in it (this should be made clear on the menu). Unfortunately it was a bit windy and staff weren’t able to put up umbrellas to stop dust and leases flying into our food and drinks, consequently we had to eat quickly and ruined the experience for us. I’d like to think things will be better once dining in is an option again. Maybe I will try again and hope for a better experience.
Service was attentive, food was stellar and of great value. Portions are great too (we ordered the Shell Royal (for 3) so do bring a healthy appetite. Would also recommend the white Sangria! Oh and don't forget to order the extra sauces too.
Fantastic experience. Phenomenal food. Great drinks. Will certainly come back.
Amazing quality seafood. But hands down the best scallop I’ve ever tasted.
We ordered Prosecco with plate of oysters, which didn’t arrive so we needed to remind the waiter, service wise was good. The waiter was looking after us and checking when we wanted the main course and bottle of wine.
Negative point regarding the food. Unfortunately, in the evening I wasn’t feeling well due a food allergy reaction, which caused me skin rash and swallowed neck. Never had any problems with seafood, I guess because food wasn’t 100% fresh
Went due to lock down restrictions one of few places with outdoor space and availability
Food and service good just a shame the location and on busy rd
But would recommend and go again
What an amazing experience eating at The Shell, delicious fresh seafood, abundant portions, impeccable service and great prices! Highly recommend it!
Great value and the portions are generous! Thoroughly enjoyable well cooked seafood 😋
Everything was perfect. Especially the server. The food was delicious and very good price for the location. Will definitely be returning
Outside dining for 3 of us. Comprehensive menu, competitive prices. Friendly staff, delicious food, complimentary ice-cream, unhurried experience. Have rebooked for an inside table later in the year. Think that will be even better.
We arrived early and with two extra people - this was no problem at all and they accommodated us immediately. We had a fantastic meal, the food and wine was delicious. Very knowledgeable about allergens in the food. They also gave us complimentary ice cream. Just perfect
Lovely, staff attentive. The platter we ordered could have fed more than two people!
Lovely food but poor location
We went for my husband’s 60th birthday staff were very attentive and the food was amazing, they even cooked my steak perfectly medium rare. We will definitely be going again.
Best seafood I've had in the uk, very fresh and will be returning again soon
The best place for sea food. Food taste great, professional service
Good food and good services. Highly recommended! It's a great place for fresh seafood.
