our history

ABOUT US

In November 2015, we started out as a small, bistro-style restaurant headed by local chef, Richard Sim. Serving fresh, local ingredients from the surrounding harbours and farms, we offer a relaxed dining. Since then we have gone on to expand the restaurant to include a new dog-friendly area, organised a number of private catering events and have been included in the 2018, 2019, 2000 and 2021 editions of the Michelin Guide.
