Great Food

The food here is always consistently good. The portions are huge and sometimes too large but left overs are boxed to go! Staff friendly and efficient. Not the ideal surroundings for a romantic dinner as it can be very, very noisy when busy and it's usually busy - a popular local eatery.

Marianne and kitchen staff are delivering consistently delicious food in copious qtys. Yvonne and staff juggle tables around to cope with the ever increasing numbers of Ellonites who recognise good value for money food. Difficult to find any fault. Family orientated and genuine quality home cooked dishes not purchased from 3663 in a bag or tin 😉

Here is a restaurant that continues to provide excellent meals, the menu plus specials is so extensive that you sit wondering what to have. When the food comes it is a big portion and tastes brilliant, no matter what you have chosen. The staff are very friendly, efficient and helpful, the service is quick even though it is a very...

This is a pleasant venue for lunch with a cosy atmosphere. The food was generally very good although as a vegetarian I could have done with a few more vegetables on my plate. The reason I have given four stars rather than five is because the lemon meringue pie I had for dessert was disappointing. It was a tart with... More

Have been twice in the last two months since moving to Ellon and on both occasions I have been pleasantly surprised! Food is very tasty and the menu has so much variety - it's often difficult to make a decision! Mains and desserts are particularly good. The place is always busy which is another good sign. Looking forwards to my... More

Food was amazing and a reasonable price however one member of staff was very rude when it came to paying our bill. Other waiting staff very friendly. Great meal however this ruined a great night! Disappointed

Great food, great service, great atmosphere. The menu has a fantastic range of options (even for fussy people like me) and the service was fast. Can't believe I've never eaten here before. Can't wait to return! 🍴
