Fodor's Review

In a prime riverside location, this seafood restaurant epitomizes the region's ongoing food revolution. The knowledgeable staff will guide you through the Italian-inspired menu, which primarily depends on the day's catch: look for scallops with garlic and white port, grilled monkfish, and fritto misto—a platter of fried seafood with aioli. The meat dishes are equally enticing, while the formidable desserts are well worth leaving space for. The restaurant is usually packed, with a relaxed and convivial atmosphere. Set-price lunch and early evening menus are often available. The owner, celebrity chef Mitch Tonks, also runs a much more basic fish-and-chips restaurant a few doors along called RockFish, open daily.
