Was expecting a great deal from this place...and it delivered. Lovely atmosphere...not too formal and stuffy. Excellent service - staff are friendly but not in your face. The food was amazing - not faffed about with but simple and delicious using the best quality ingredients. It's not cheap by any means but worth the price for the quality. Ask or... More

This is a lovely restaurant with only about 30 seats. Interesting decor, excellent service and food. It is right in the Heart of Dartmouth and they do a Locals menu for lunch for only £20 which is outstanding value. The portions are a good size, so you will not leave hungry. I have marked the price mid range as with... More

With a good selection of fresh fish simply cooked but full of flavour this restaurant does not disappoint. The service was excellent, friendly and efficient. Would highly recommend for lunch or dinner.

Very friendly staff made up for us being underwhelmed by the food which had been much hyped in the press. This has been our experience in other restaurants where a good chef opens multiple restaurants.

We came here for dinner on our first Friday night in Dartmouth based on trip advisor recommendations and were certainly not disappointed. The room itself is smart and cosy with warm lighting and friendly unpretentious staff. Extensive wine list a little on the pricey side and we all had different starters which were equally delicious (even the caprese salad as... More

Had heard great things about the seafood and fish here and being a non-meat eater wanted to give it a go. So pleased we did. The food was absolutely delicious. Nice ambience and lovey staff to help with choosing wine. It's small so book ahead and you will not be disappointed. Have to mention that even the deserts were amazing!

Hubby took me here for my birthday - and what a treat it was. This is a fabulous fish restaurant - where quality shines through. Every course was sublime - having got over the disappointment of the scallops not being available, my husband went for the mozzarella, which sounded like a poor substitute at the time, but turned out to...

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The service was delightful. Could not have been more attentive. The food was delicious and definitely made us smile which is always a good barometer. It was very well judged cooking and absolutely delivered and when it does that you do not think about the price. It is priceless. I also had something I had... More
