A newish building with large free car park. The seating area is quite large and choices of by the window, in a booth or one in the general area. Well stocked bar offering a wide selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. The food choices are quite good, the staff very friendly and a nice environment. The quality of the cooked... More

I’ve been to this restaurant, next to the Falkirk Wheel, twice now; once for lunch and once for breakfast. It is a new building with modern decor, very spacious and comfortable. The food is reasonably priced and on both occasions has been very enjoyable. The serving staff are all very friendly and service is quick without being rushed. Overall I’ve... More

Problem just getting into and out of the booth. Long wait for starter, garlic mushrooms sauce too runny. G&T in a chipped glass, Dirty martini was really watery and weak. Chateaubriand did NOT look like any Chateaubriand I have seen and it was overcooked. Chip's had to be sent back and replaced by sweet potato chips (lovely).We left before coffee... More

We had eaten here multiple times without a problem. Our most recent visit as a party of six was disappointing. The steaks, mussels and scallops were prepared well. The prawns and calamari from the tapas menu were tasteless and soggy. The cullen skink was as terrible as it had been good on previous visits. The cullen skink tasted like warm... More

We went to this restaurant with another couple for some lunch today. There is a reasonable amount of free parking available. The restaurant itself is quite big, clean, tidy & fresh (not tired like some). The staff were always very friendly and helpful. A minor point was that when asked re drinks one or more of the table asked for... More

Just back from a trip here to celebrate my boyfriends birthday. The food was delicious and the portions were very generous. The restaurant got pretty busy but there were plenty of staff who were attentive. We paid partially with vouchers from Tesco club card points meaning the bill was very reasonable even after three courses. Overall, no complaints. We will... More

We arrived looking for a light bite - maybe some tea/coffee, sandwich, slice of cake - NOPE!!! Nothing but a main menu which was all too much - missing a trick with that huge bar area - no bar menu. The place wasn't that busy and we were asked to wait 15 minutes for a table, we didn't wait, we... More

From the outside this place loks lovely and a welcome addition at the Falkirk Wheel as oppose to the usual Cafe style you would expect at a tourist attraction. The restaurant itself is lovely and the menu looked great... this is where the positives end I am afraid. The restaurant was about a quarter full (if that) and service was... More

Thought this was a really nice restaurant, the perfect way to finish a day walking the canal and visiting the wheel. Dinner service was quick and the food was hot and tasty.
