We had the best meal of our holiday so far in this restaurant. Great menu - fish, meats and vegetarian - sharing platters also offered. We ate the ribs and they were amazing. So so tender with the meat falling off the bone. Best ribs ever. Hoping to return for one of the fish dishes. The pudding menu looked amazing but we were too full. Really generous portion sizes. Lovely staff as well. We will definitely be returning. Thank you!

I was attracted to this Restaurant by the reviews on Trip Adviser and because I have not been here before (Other than 25 years ago when it was called “The Foot in the Plate”).

There is no website with menu so I wondered down the day before our booking to see if there was a menu in the window. There was and it was not really to my tastes at all! However this place is all about the specials a majority of which are fish.

Two of our party had a brown shrimp on bread which was excellent. For the Main I had the Crab Linguine which with the crab being perfectly cooked. Others had the Goan Fish Curry which was excellent.

My only criticism is the lack of website and they only open at nights so if you are flying in from a different Timezone like myself it was difficult to book by leaving a message on an answer phone.

We were lucky to get a last minute table here on Sunday evening having been recommended to go here by friends. All of the dishes were superb and the staff so friendly and helpful. The fish dishes from the specials board were all excellent - crab linguine, monkfish curry delicious! We will definitely go back and we cannot recommend highly enough.
