After all the rave reviews we had high hopes ..... we found the service offering inflexible - not allowed to swap chips for vegetables so ordered the side of vegetables as an extra (left the mandatory Chips) It was frankly weird to be served a mass of braised red cabbage with fish in a cream sauce... (looked awful and the... More

We dropped in for dinner early, without a booking, and were cheerily accommodated. We both opted for the chef's special dish: seared Hake fillet with Portpatrick Crab on spinach & crispy Scampi with Café de Paris sauce. What can I say, the food was superbly prepared, being cooked to perfection. The combination of ingredients was delectable and the sauce a... More

This is not a place I visit often but would have no hesitation in going again if in... More

Lovely home made bread and very fresh fish cooked superbly. The starter of seafood mist was outstanding, followed by fresh haddock with an abundance of vegetables, too much really. Nice... More

The restaurant right by the harbour and has an extensive seafood and meat menu. I had haddock which was OK but forgettable. My other half had langoustine which she loved. Overall well worth a visit for a classy meal with great staff but with prices to match.
