We had seen some excellent reviews for MacFarlane's and were eager to try it during our weekend visit to The Isle of Man. We booked for dinner using the restaurant's online booking service and received an email to confirm it. The next day, having been out sightseeing, we returned to our hotel to find another email, this time from the... More

Went here for my birthday dinner. They greet you at the entrance to the hotel, from whence you proceed to the bar to choose your meal. We had already said we would like taster menu which gave chef a chance to prepare the best meal we have had on the island. Food was well presented, service impeccable and an excellent... More

Excellent Restaurant with beautiful food. I am not normally one to get a sweet after my meal but I did tonight (Sticky toffee pudding) and it was amazing. All the food tasted fantastic, good ambience and waiting staff attentive. Highly recommended.

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!
