Always our favourite restaurant to spend an evening, fabulous food and the best service. Chris's herb butter is a must, and the new house champagne is one of the best we've tasted. Can't wait to visit again soon.More

We had had recommendations about this place, and we were not disappointed. Charming decor, charming owners, delicious fish. Great Yarmouth has a lot going for it if you know where to look. We came by boat so enjoyed a bottle of Muscadet too!

Description
As a family business, we take pride in the food and experience we offer. We've been running The Seafood Restaurant for over 38 years. During that time we've learnt what our customers like and work hard to deliver just that. All the fish served at the Seafood Restaurant is fresh. Where possible, we will always use local fish - and we've used the same local fishmonger for over 30 years, so we know what we're getting! As a result our menu is always changing and the fish dishes move with the seasons. Steaks are available for non fish eaters, plus vegetarians. We understand and cater for people with dietary requirements.
