Visited with friends - all enjoyed the food and the excellent service. Good wine list. One word of warning portions are very large. Toilets are clean and spacious.

Great lunch, steak sandwich was superb! & the White Russian to finish was icing on the cake. Was pretty quite when we were in on a Sunday afternoon so we sat outside on the lovely decking with great views over the water.

We visited the Douglas hotel bistro basically because we could use our tastecard, and now I certainly wouldn't hesitate to return! The waitering staff were friendly and attentive, and the food was delicious, both mains and deserts. The portions were a bit on the small side I felt but fairly typical as far as bistros go, and the pricing was... More

My starter was the wood pigeon followed by a rib- eye steak which was cooked exactly how I wanted. My sweet a chocolate pot with ice cream. My only gripe was the coffee I asked for an espresso but was given a filter coffee. Complained and the staff quickly put it right. The wine was reasonably priced as well.
