Very casual setting but a great find. We saw a lot of locals here which is always a good sign. Linda our waitress was great fun, very efficient & honest in her recommendations & she organised a free shuttle bus to drop us back to our accommodation. Good food, recommend the ocean basket!

What a great location for fish and chips. The building looks a bit tatty and run down but that adds to its charm and the setting is perfect. The food was wonderful, great portion sizes and so fresh. The service was very efficient and there were many locals using the restaurant when we were there which was nice. The location... More

This place has a real laid back feel to go with it's position on the sea front but don't be fooled, the food is surprisingly good. This was the first time I have eaten peri peri chicken livers and they were delicious. Good service, good food, good drinks and good fun!
