I visited Rogano with my family and we had sea food starter, the prawns were slimy and were off and disgusting. We complained and the waitress told the chef but he never came to speak to us. We all had stomach pains and the runs that night. The manager didn't even apologise when I phoned to complain the next day.

We visited here last night to use a voucher I bought through 5pm. We had eaten in the cafe before and really enjoyed it, but this time was the first time we had been to the restaurant. Although this is a fish restaurant we checked before hand that my partner, who is vegetarian, would be catered for- it turned out... More

Had a lovely lunch with the girls. Haggis, neeps and tatties, fantastic. The staff were all very nice. I would recommend it.

Went to the restaurant last week for a special occasion. The first impression wasn't that great. The bar leading into the restaurant was rowdy and cramped. We were led to a wobbly table but it was well presented. The food and the service was good but not what I would have expected. What did let The Rogano down badly was... More

I have been coming here regularly for oysters for over 20 years and can say I am extremely disappointed. Visited here today after a busy day in the town with my 19 year old daughter. We approached the bar and asked for a glass of champagne for me and a Cocktail for my daughter; my daughter was refused as she... More

Dined here on a voucher-as had the rest of the diners there early Sunday evening. Deal included glass of champagne, bottle of wine, canapés and a main course-no choice other than a vegetarian option.The main course offered was roasted red mullet on parmesan polenta with razor clams and squid-we opted for the veggie option-OH had mushroom risotto-mine was tortelloni-tasty but...

I love the history and architecture of the Rogano - it's a beautiful, potentially atmospheric, historically fascinating room. The food is OK, if a little dated, and the service very good, if a little stiff. I visited last week - we had a table for six. If only the lighting were better: sure, although it looks cosy when you enter,... More

Having visited the Rogano on many occasions over the years for either drinks or food or both, it never changes - and that's what I love about it. If you like the Art Deco style coupled with great food and friendly, attentive service then this is the place for you. My last visit was with 3 friends and we ate... More
