We ordered a seafood platter takeaway - it was absolutely delicious - there was so much that we ate the hot food on one day and the cold the following day. We do so miss dining in as the food and ambience is so lovely.

I’ve been visiting this amazing place for years and have never been disappointed. Excellent food, warm service and comfortable surroundings. I can’t wait to try their takeaway service.

Lovely lunch, in very tasteful and relaxing atmosphere with great service. This restaurant is beautiful with wonderful food and superb value. I would go again and again- utterly charming. Excellent.

Normally we enjoy attending the restaurant, but due to Covid this year its not been possible. So was overjoyed to see the option of a takeaway service, the chance to have a treat and support a lovely family run business during these tricky times. We...have had a number of takeaways over the past 6 months and have been really impressed. The same friendly and high level of service. The quality of food is superb, as we have come to expect when previously visiting and the menu has grown. Well done guys and we'll deffinatly be returning again soon :)More

Our 2nd visit and this place just keeps on giving. Food to die for, very well prepared and presented. Super fish choices and not crazy prices. The team are professional and the Marta d’ very welcoming. Promise not to leave it so long until the...next time. The best in this area by far.More

Ate here with some friends, I had the Scallops to start and the Monkfish for main course. The food was okay but not what I would expect for somewhere which has such a good reputation. The service was excellent but my overriding view was that...for the food and drink I had it was overpriced.More

We had an amazing meal, very lovely friendly staff, amazing fish, with wonderful wine. I had the monkfish curry and my hubby had the sea bass, have to say one of the best fish dishes we have ever tasted, thank you a great experience even...with Covid restrictions, you made us all feel very welcome and we would definitely return ❤️👌More
