Very pleasant restaurant. Attentive staff. Food very tasty. Downside was that someone with a half decent appetite would probably leave hungry. Portions of fish we both had (main course) were tiny. For the portion size was very expensive.

Visited this individual restaurant on recommendation. Blown away by the fish dishes and puddings. So creative by chef Gareth. The tastes were exquisite. As good as it gets.
