Good menu for fish lovers. The Scallop and Lardon Omelette is to be recommended. Excellent wine choice and good pudding list. Petite house but efficient service makes reservations timely. But DO book. Good vale for money - ambience, service, food and choice.

We turned up late, but the staff was forgiving and smiling. We enjoyed a superbly presented main course in a stylish decor of watercolour seafood paintings. Unpretentious and delicious

Booking over the weekend is a must, however when we arrived they did manage to squeeze a couple in who hadn't booked. This is a lovely little seafood restaurant that we will be definitely frequenting again on the next trip to the island. The crab...More

Not that I'm aware of although they like you to be smartly dressed at weekends.
Sir - having chosen to besmirch my character on this website and lied about our correspondence (my letter to you was dated and sent 13 Sep - accept I got the date wrong in my posting) - so please provide details of your advocate to allow my solicitor to pursue your perverse statements through the courts. I am neither 'rude' nor 'condescending' and what you describe as a 'tirade' was a fair report of the food that your team/suppliers provided - I still shudder at the memory of at least 3 instances of approx 2.5 inch long by 1/2 inch wide pieces of crab shell in the 'coriander' soup - life-threatening to be sure. Your mother's misaddressed e-mail was OK by me and whilst some of the points were unusual (e.g. to engage with your suppliers directly) it offered a £50 voucher which if we determined we'd ever revisit the IoM and your restaurant we would have taken up (neither of these appeals to us). Judging from your responses to other 'negative' reviews on this site you are a rude and uncaring provender that deserves no happy clients. Your suggestion that we should have returned to discuss our 'niggles' was absurd - we were on holiday and not minded to return/waste time on Tanroagan engagement. John
