We're not vegetarian but got an excellent tip-off to ignore the absence of flesh. Limited, excellent menu is GOOD. Fresh own-grown ingredients cooked with flair.

I booked a table for my parents here for a special occasion when they were here on holiday. I made this booking in person, with a lovely young gentleman who appeared to write it in the diary with a note for the best window table as "we have no other bookings yet for that date". Unfortunately when my parents arrived... More

Had a fabulous meal here tonight. Everything so tasty from the giant cheese straws with the beetroot pate starter to the magnificent rhubarb chutney with the curry main. The coconut and carrot lemon drizzle cake is moist and tasty. Book early . We saw so many people turned away because the restaurant was full. The Rumanian Pinot noir at £16... More

Visited the restaurant on the last night of a week long holiday, the day after they reopened, if they had been open the entire week, I think we may have eaten there everyday! We both had the vegetarian curry, and it was the nicest curry I have ever tasted! Menu is short but the restaurant seems to be a small... More

We went for dinner here in August. Both myself and my boyfriend had the almond curry with Bombay potatoes and rice, which was spicy and flavoursome. As I’m coeliac they made me some gluten-free pancakes in place of the naan bread, which was a thoughtful and much appreciated touch. We then had the chocolate cake with clotted cream, which was...

We visited on a busy night in August. Spinacio's was recommended to me by a local to the area. The service was lovely, the food not up to standard I'm sad to say. Good View though. Maybe give it a go when its less busy.

Book the table for two in the window in the first room as you enter. From the upstairs window, watch the sun- filled day glide into evening, as the beach life wraps up for the day; people packing up their boards, the few folk left in the water in their wetsuits still perfecting their manoeuvres, the kids having their ice-cream...
