Popped in early in the morning before they were open to ask about the lunch time menu. The young man we met was unable to tell us because, " we don't know until the fish arrives from the market". This was a great selling point...More

No, there is no dress code. But more important than worrying about what to wear - following our recent visit, I'd not go at all. The service was poor (we didn't ever get some of the things we ordered) & the food was very... More
