This place has closed, which is a pity. Previously it was (usually) a nice but unpredictable experience. Hopefully someone will come along to bring this back to life.

Was a little worried about the service in this restaurant looking at the previous reviews. Need not have worried, booked a table for last Sunday afternoon. All of us ordered fish, which was perfectly cooked and did not have to wait longer than 20 minutes after placing the order. Can't moan about that. Will definitely go back. They even gave... More

This night was such a let down with our friends. There were only 3 tables of customers so we thought we might get some attention. After 20 minutes the barmaid pointed over to the young waitress to come over to our table and asked if she could take our order. We said that we hadn't been given any menu's yet... More

Never again, we were frequent diners at the Piranha and have been in it's previous incarnations, but since waiting in a half full restaurant for over an hour to be served and seeing favoured couples getting served when they arrived sometime after us. Very poor service. Such a shame.

We tried again last Saturday and found a marked improvement, so only right that I record my findings. The menu was all fresh and on a blackboard, good selection of fish, prawns, shell fish and steaks, we had a selection from all areas of the menu and were all impressed, my strip loin was a revelation, the gambas a good...

We stumbled across this place whilst on a short break in Hayling Island. We were looking for a 'nice' restaurant and not the burger/pie of the day type and are seafood lovers Only a small place, very friendly and informal and not as you may imagine expensive and exclusive for regular Marina users. The fish and seafood was excellent and... More

It took ages to get the bill and pay. The crab was a bit tasteless but liked the salad in balsamic vinegar and the chips. The starter of prawns was very nice. My freinds enjoyed their steaks.

Nice place. Good coffee and some customers had a massive crab. That looked awesome delicious. Good location by the sea and sailing club.

Staff were so helpful, views are great. Food is a bit pricier than other places but worth the money. Great choice of drinks at the bar - unusual gins, a fabulous pale ale and gorgeous prosecco. Highly recommended.

Just had a meal for lunch. My wife's birthday. We had starters and main, I couldn't have asked for better tasty food and the service was great, very quick and attentive. Well done guys, a great experience.
