I stayed here for the weekend with my husband for a relaxing break. This restaurant with rooms was easy to find and in an excellent location across from the harbour. Parking can be difficult. There is on street parking which is limited to 60 minutes between 9 and 5. There is a short stay car park across the road and... More

We stayed here while visiting parents nearby, mainly due to reviews on TA. We are very glad that we did as our room, a family room as it turned out, was fantastic. We had a huge bed, as well as 2 bunk beds should we have fancied it. The bed was comfortable and we both had a great night's sleep.... More

This is the first time we had been here. Booked a table for 5 for 5pm Saturday night. The weather was beautiful all day and the wee town in the east neuk was bustling. The food was ordered and completely demolished. Everything was very nice. A wee bit pricey but that's because of the location. Having said that, the place... More

Very busy especially on summer nights due to the lovely location, I think you're paying more for where you're eating rather than what you're eating as the food itself was pretty average, nothing special

We returned after a year and were still impressed by our accommodation. Good sized room, comfortable bed and good shower. Wifi not brilliant but better if you sit on the stairs (and it's free). Read the small print and be aware you can only check in after 2:30pm.

This is really a restaurant with rooms. The accommodation is at the back so no sea views but our room (5) was large and comfortable, excellent bathroom and very powerful shower. Downside was the sound proofing or lack of it, you could hear most things from the room upstairs especially moving about early in the mornings which unless you are... More
