I went to dine with my partner as a treat. The seafood was beautiful, we both enjoyed our meals, and the barman was extremely knowledgeable. If you like to talk cocktails and mixology sit at the bar! All the staff were friendly and an awesome local. I recommend sitting on the walk out front if the day is warm enough - fun for people watching and a great view of the cathedral.

You really couldn't fault the food and the service. All of us enjoyed our meals. The seafood platter was a great starting point. It offered samples of mussels, squid, tuna, shrimp, oyster, octopus served with great bread.

I had a great lunch of seared tuna followed by rasberry cheescake, accompanied by a glass of champagne. The service was really good, even our dog (we sat outside) was well looked after with plenty of water on a warm day. I would recommend to others.

Cod and Lobster is always busy but passing mid afternoon on Easter Sunday we were delighted to see an empty table out in the sunshine.
Within minutes we had ordered lunch - fish cakes with poached eggs - and we sat back enjoying the dappled sunshine while people-watching.
Within minutes our drinks arrived, followed very shortly afterwards with a bowl of water for the pup.
Lunch was delicious, the smoked fish cakes fresh and tasty.
On paying, we couldn't pass up the lovely looking brownies - so got a doggie-bag to go.
the food - delicious
the service - friendly and faultless
the ambiance - relaxed and welcoming
the best surprise - no public holiday surcharge on the bill.
Will we be back? - absolutely.

A great dinner decision. We had the fish block which was outstanding in all regards. All the fish was beautiful. Excellent presentation. Service was excellent - just right. Only SLIGHT disappointment was cheeseboard. Selection of cheeses fi e but some fruit would have helped. Definitely go again.
