A good variety of seafood and Scottish staples. Wine was reasonably priced. Good deserts and after-dinner drinks added to a enjoyable meal.

As a family of 4 we were pleased to be fitted in for a meal quite late with children aged 11 and (nearly) 9. We found the staff excellent and the food very good and reasonably priced. Nice bottled local ale too.

Good location and especially handy if you are staying at the attached Alexandra Hotel, as we were. Friendly service. Menu much the same as you would find in many restaurants, but, all the same, plenty of choice and my husband and I enjoyed the two meals we had there.

The menu offers a good selection of Traditional Scottish dishes. The food was nice, well presented and Freshly prepared. The cost was very reasonable. The service was of a concern. The restaurant was very busy and the service was very slow. The waitresses were clearly rushed of her feet. Perhaps some more staff was required for a busy Friday evening.... More

If you're driving into town and walking through the tourist section, do yourself a favor and walk to the end (closest the harbor) for your meal. The prices in this stop were low-to-middle range, but having tried a couple of stops before, this spot provided a great value and four star quality and four star presentation. I see from some...

Had visited the food stop before on multiple occasions and the service and food was good but the last few visits I has have been very disappointing!

Promptly show to a table and a drinks order was quickly taken, but we were not offered water. There was a mix up with the drinks but this was quickly rectified, but in the end both pints were flat. Our food order arrived in good time; my pork, while warm, was unremarkable for the price. We didn't want to stay... More
