Nice place for lunch

Nice restaurant with lots of seating, little nooks and crannies, so you feel quite private wherever you're sitting. Enjoyed our food and service was friendly and attentive, Lots of parking space so ideal for meeting up with friends.

What can I say but total disappoint in the Sunday lunch, expensive, tiny and never to be tried again, was fair looking forward to it after a great family day out.. Boy was I in for a shock!! Came home after a £11 meal each!! I don't expect to be making sandwiches... But that's what I did!!

Ok, so we have been going to the Kittiwake or Cambustay for sometime. On average it's been pretty good. The management in 2014 seemed to have great service, great atmosphere and good wholesome food. I think in 2015 they are no longer there as there is a different front of house team now and the chef seems to no longer... More

I visited the Kittiwake with my husband and two year old daughter today for lunch. This was the first time I'd been here; I'd heard mixed reviews so wasn't sure what to expect. The premises are well decorated and clean. The waitress who served us was friendly. The menu had a good selection with plenty of vegetarian options which impressed... More

I live local to this restaurant and have been here on various occasions previously over the years which was instrumental in my decision to take my parents and family here for an evening dinner. My father is 76 years old and cannot suffer to sit for too long which was why we booked a table 5 hours prior to eating... More

We have been a number of times for a meal at Kittiwake, which is now called 'the Cambustay'. The food is a bit up from the traditional Pub-food menu. They offer great portions and their steak nights are excellent value. Great beer on tap as well and good selection of wines. One evening one of the dishes was a bit... More

We went here for a celebratory meal as a family. We all ordered different things from the menu. We waited more than 15 mins to be served and another 30 mins for our food to be served. When the food arrived it was burned, I called the waitress over to complain and she told me it was char grilled!!!! Well... More
