Fabulous restaurant

This is my favourite restaurant. The food and service are always amazing and Roy is always happy to try to adapt meals to suit such as changing sauces etc and caters for gluten free. All in all the best evening out you could hope for. We even had our wedding reception there!

Conveniently situated in the central area of Douglas. The restaurant is quite small but with clever use of mirrors, it appears to be much larger. Very nice booths ensure a good deal of privacy whilst eating - a nice idea. The food was very good- I had beef carpaccio possibly with a bit too much balsamic vinegar for my taste... More

We liked it , service was very good, attentive without being rushed. It is very good value for money. There was real white napkin, not paper ones

My wife and I have enjoyed dinner at Macfarlanes Restaurant many times but, until recently, never lunch. This was an omission we had to rectify! Well, we were certainly not disappointed! We had an excellent experience - great food, great service, and the usual friendly welcome from Chef Roy Macfarlane and his attentive staff. Set right in the shopping centre... More

On the whole the meal was very good. The goat's cheese soufflé was excellent. For my main course I had plaice with rocket and parmesan salad. It was more like Hunt the Rocket. I had three minute shreds and the rest being lamb's lettuce which l'm not keen on. The waiter asked if everything was alright. I told him about... More

A high quality restaurant in central Douglas serving good sized portions, indeed we couldn't eat dessert after starters & mains, neither of which we were able to finish. The ubiquitous "Queenies", Manx queen scallops were much in evidence on the menu and served very nicely in a scallop & lobster tartlet to start. Quite a small restaurant, would advise booking,...
