Dropped in here for a late lunch of mussels, lovely!. Reasonably priced. Specials board also available. Nice to be able to sit outside in the sun or inside. Friendly helpful staff. Plus you can walk off your meal along the bay. Recommended .

I recall visiting this restaurant quite some years ago when it was more of a casual cafe...now we were surprised it had become a rather elegant and upmarket restaurant (while still maintaining it quirky and distinct character decor). Our meals were delivered very promptly and...More
