Had a lovely meal at this friendly restaurant on Saturday. Both the waiting staff were very friendly and attentive, the food was very nice, however the restaurant was so loud and stuffy. Just a little bit of air con would have changed the atmosphere so much for the better. Also - I ordered ice cream for desert, which again was... More

Visited on a Saturday night as a party of 6. The restaurant is on one of the main shopping streets and is very unassuming from the outside. The inside also looks a lot bigger than it is due to the clever use of mirrors. The menu was good and short, indicating fresh ingredients, with a couple of specials on the... More

They were very kind to open a little early to seat us since they were fully booked. The Manx Fish Pie was awesome and full of flavor. The Sticky toffee pudding gave me goosebumps. Our party of 4 left very happy. Thank you!

Freshly prepared local ingredients. Fish pie was outstanding. Set menu is reasonably priced given the quality of food. Highly recommend.

Rare it is to find dishes that live up to their description. In this delightful, busy and obviously well thought of restaurant the number of diners returning augered well for the evening. Cheese soufflé starters were just moist, tasty and perfectly cooked. The Friday night special of Lemon Sole with crispy lobster and local scallops in lemon butter sauce was... More

Roy and Sheila McFarlane have the most gorgeous little restaurant with the most gorgeous food. Service is comfortable without being familiar and the booths are both private and cosy. Food is beautifully cooked and my business partner from Dubai was most impressed. Well done again, I return again and again.

On a short break anywhere we rely on the Tripadvisor reviews for restaurants. We visited Macfarlanes on our second evening - and were very lucky to get a table - which we had booked only the previous day. We found the staff charming and efficient - and the food was perfect for us. It is all beautifully prepared and presented,... More
