It’s been about 5 years since we have been to this restaurant but it’s still great. The seafood superb and really good choices on the menu.

Both had nice starters and meals. Good food, pleasant staff and a nice restraunt. We delayed in booking a table and had to eat a little later. Booking is recommended. Although busy we didn't feel squashed in. A nice evening, good food and a beer.

The restaurant was completely full after about 7.30. We had booked on Tuesday for Thursday night and could only get in at 6.15pm. We really enjoyed the food and will go there again next time we are in Sidmouth.
