The clippers location right on the promenade makes it difficult to miss, a smart, well run restaurant, happy staff and a great selection of fish dishes make it hard to beat. The prices have crept up a bit this year is the only downside.

The service we were afforded was exceptional. All members of staff from waiting on staff to the chef, worked hard to ensure our enjoyment of the food... More

Had a very nice meal here. He had the "covers" which was bread, pate and olives. This is quite filling so we decided against a starter. For main course we had grilled sardines and fresh sea bream. Both were very good. The sardines were big and meaty and the sea bream was tasty. The wine was good. The service was... More
