Great welcome. We went for an early dinner because they were fully booked later in the evening. However, this suited us much better. The service was excellent and the food was superb. Everything we had to eat was delicious. Can't fault this place at all. We came here because we had been to the sister restaurant earlier in the week... More

Place had a real buzz on a Wednesday night. Great service and knowledgeable on their seafood. Just loved the 'DIY Eton Mess' desert, a real stunner. The only slight issue i had is that their espresso coffee was really very harsh indeed. Great visit overall

Tanroagan is always on my list of places to visit for a meal at least once during my visit to the IOM. Small place but high class food and service. If you love seafood then this is the place for you. Had the Fishermans pie - delicious! Recommend that you make a reservation.

Haven't been in a little while, but happy to report the food, service and atmosphere was excellent. I had the crab soup followed by skate, both were fantastic and I'd highly recommend. There was a gentleman on his own on the next table, this was his first time and he was hugely complimentary.

We visited twice during the very busy TT week this year, having been here several times before at the same time of year. We have never been disappointed. The only small criticism I would make was about the starter I chose. It was the 'Queenie arancini'. It was rather large and quite tasteless. A bit filling for a starter and... More

Been to this restaurant on a couple of occasions and up until last night we've always been impressed. I had a monk fish of the specials board and asked for the mash potato to be swapped for chips. Over cooked monk fish arrived on a bed of mash potato which was tasteless! I eventually got my chips but they were... More

I'm sorry about the potato problem. We were given mixed variety rumbled potatoes by Robinsons and it wasn't until after I cooked them I saw the problem but just did not have the time to replace. Same happened to chips. It's also the time of the year that we go from old to new crops, the old have been in... More

The restaurant is very small, but the service and food were excellent. Excellent fresh seafood. Would definitely return to this restaurant if ever back in Douglas. Highly suggest you make reservations.

Waited an age to be served with a drink, the waiter was rude and I didn't enjoy my food as it was all covered in butter (Just too much for my personal taste). Overall I was very disappointed which is a shame as I used to like it here. Plus points I love the decor, it has a lovely fresh... More

sorry to hear you were disappointed with your visit. its possible our waiter wasn't rude but was struggling with the language barrier. Before you say it - we are struggling with a lot of other establishments to find skilled staff. Re the butter, some dishes are finished with a little butter lemon and herbs as indicated on the menu, if... More

We have eaten here a few times before and gave good reviews but it seems the chef and passion has gone! The food was very greasy and tasteless and far below what we have would have expected. The waitress did not seem to report our comments while we were there, guess this is why the restaurant was all but empty!

I am afraid your assumptions on two accounts were wrong 1. the waitress did tell the chefs, they took the dish to the kitchen to see what was wrong and when they went to speak to you - - you had gone.. 2.how can you make a guess on one visit on our bookings ? stick to the facts if... More
