Beautiful location and great food

Pam Baisden

We had a lovely meal and great wine. There were only a few other diners as it was fairly early. We would definitely go again if we were in the area.

We loved this place. Very friendly family oriented. The food is amazing, and the price I think was very reasonable for the quality & quantity you get. I'd definitely go here again.Parking: Unless you park in a car park & walk to the restaurant, there's no free street parking until after 6pm

Great food and wine friendly staff

David Clarke

Super expensive and staff really pushy


Starters were good, mains were average. Chips served were definitely shop bought. Waiter was rather rude.

Quiet on a Wednesday night so lacked atmosphere. Waiters were attentive and food was reasonably priced at around £15-20 for a main course and perfectly good without being amazing. They are situated right opposite the beach so when the sun's out and the bi-fold doors are open it will come into its element.

Went early evening for dinner with my wife and son and the food was excellent. Great choice of dishes on the menu and meat was cooked to perfection. The service was really good too despite it being quite busy. We will be heading back soon! Thanks again.

The food we had was lovely, really tasty.However I can’t recommend this to anyone with children, unless they’re old enough to have/share a full adult portion.We went with our 6yo, there’s no kids menu which is fine. But usually when that’s the case at Indians etc they can usually offer half / smaller portions of their main courses.I hadn’t thought to check in advance thinking we’d just get some BBQ chicken, chips and bread or something.We were told this wasn’t possible and the only option was to get a full adult chicken dish, replace the salad with chips and take home what she didn’t eat. At nearly £20 a main course this was not an option since she’d probably only eat a quarter of it and we were staying in a local hotel.So she ended up sharing with me with an extra side when I’d much rather have had my entire chicken dish!As I say lovely food and although they were friendly enough, especially with my daughter, the food options for her were disappointing.Kid-friendliness: No child friendly options unless you want to pay for a full adult main course

Fantastic quality of food, nice wine and cold effes beer. Great views out to sea whilst dining. The staff were attentive when needed.

I've had better Iskender before which is why I gave 4 stars for the food but the presentation, atmosphere and service were 5 stars.

Unfortunately, they made errors with our orders, very slow service and some dish too hot and others served on cold plates . We were told they didn't accept card payments and told us to go outside and use the cash machine, disappointing service, We have not had these issues before, and your website needs to inform customers cards not accepted
