“It feels like a caff”, but this “cramped, funky and tiny” three-year-old is one of the city’s hottest spots, thanks to its “ravishing lobster, langoustines, clams, squid…”; “booking is essential” (but “you can drop in for a seat at the bar”).

The critic vists a “seafood specialist” which “has become the hottest restaurant in town, despite its location on an unlovely stretch of arterial road a couple of miles west of the city centre”. She finds an establishment where a huge amout has been “crammed into the tiny space”, where “the food didn't quite fulfil the promise of a menu which reads beautifully”. Overall, thoough, she found “plenty to like”.
