Best starter I have ever had

We went as a party of 4 for a midweek evening meal in the last week in October 2015. I had the mixed fish salad as my starter and have to say that it was amongst the best starters I have ever had in any restaurant. The main courses were also excellent - fresh fish, cooked to perfection and well... read more

Recently called in for a mid-week lunch. Window tables have a view of the harbour where we watched the days catch being offloaded before it turned up at the smokehouse next door. The skink soup (smoked haddock, leeks & potato) and seafood/salad in a jar were absolutely delicious, couldn´t fault it and all for a very resonable price (GBP15), given... More

We were on a week’s holiday in the area and having read the online reviews were keen to visit. It did not disappoint. Lovely, homely Cullen skink, perfect fish and chips. Portions were generous so we shared a dessert. Service was friendly and knowledgeable. It edges ahead of the local competition, but that’s just our opinion. It is clearly very... More

I had seafood chowder and could hardly move afterwards, full of flavour, service could have done with being a bit quicker, but overall a very nice meal.

My and my husband ate at this restaurant last week. We both ordered fish dishes which tasted lovely the only negative I have is that the restaurant was on the cold side.

Had lunch here, there speciality is smoked Kippers, smoked here, told a lot of the kippers sold to upmarket supermarkets. This is a good restaurant in Craster which is a small village, and harbour on the North Sea Coast . The fish as you would expect was very good. A bit expensive but good. A must if you are staying...

I had high expectations of this restaurant as I love kippers. Did it meet it I think my title says it all! The kippers where cooked to perfection. Service was excellent. We had a lovely window table looking out over the harbour that I could have sat there all day. Highly recommend.

Lovely food. Good service from friendly locals. Some Brazilian dishes on the menu so you can try something different if you want to. Or stick to what you know! Definitely need to book as it can get busy. If you're lucky you may get a table with a seaview.
