A cozy restaurant with excellent food if you are in town

Excellent meal and excellent service. It's upstairs and very cozy - the only saving grace in this town. Recommended.

Amazing little find! Very friendly staff and amazing food. Nice touches such as bread to start and truffles with the tea and coffee. Not sure why anyone has given this place a bad review. The portions are generous, particularly compared to restaurants back in Edinburgh where we are from. I would highly recommend this place! Thanks for a delicious meal!

The quality of the food did not impress and was definitely over priced. We enjoyed our M&S dine in for £10 that we ate at home the previous evening far more.

I booked this restaurant after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor... The restaurant itself is small and quaint, the waiting staff pleasant and the starters were actually passable but unfortunately thats where it ends. The main course was not nice at all.

Kyle is a small village where we spent a night .Dropped in here on a wet evening in early May, no booking ,but got a table. Good food, good staff ,good price. Would happily return. Its small so probably best to book in tourist season. Kevin Dublin

Real food made on the premises. There was a good selection for all tastes and at a good price. What a delight to be away from home and eat good wholesome food which took skill and talent to prepare. The waitress and waiter were both very friendly and attentive. Book a table if you don't want to be disappointed.
