Special place

We went for a special birthday last year. Have tried again on a couple of occasions but unfortunately they don't cater for larger groups, which is a pity. The food is beautiful and expensive. Not a glamorous setting but it was well worth the trip

Wonderful meal! Delightful octopus salad and yummy smoked mackerel pate to start followed by generous roasted salmon salad and fish and chips. Friendly, attentive staff.

Here for a family meal last week. Portion size is ample and prices are fair. Service was fantastic and the atmosphere relaxed. The quality of cooking is not as it has been over the past few years but the fresh fish needs little to compliment.

We arrived just before the restaurant was due to close but this did not stop them from greeting us and offering the menus. We had heard of the place and the fish and chip shop next door and just wanted fish and chips. We were not disappointed. The batter on the fish was very light and the fish incredibly fresh.... More

The restaurant is located at the docks were you can see all the fishing vessels docked. Reservations necessary because it is a small restaurant. Service, food and atmosphere are great. Scallops and the half lobster thermidor were excellent. Good price for the money. Have to try the homemade ice-creams.

Family lunch was fantastic. Langoustines, mussels, lobster and crab were all freshly prepared and absolutely delicious. Relaxed atmosphere and great service. Have already booked our return visit.

I had an absolutely wonderful meal at MacCullum's. As a lover of langoustines it is very hard to get them cooked well, however they were cooked perfectly, sweet, soft, succulent and great value for money considering the portion size. I had half lobster and chips to follow, which again was cooked to perfection. The service was excellent and its understated... More

MacCallum's Fish and Oyster Restaurant is just so terrific. Set at the ocean-side with waves breaking over the forecourt at a pier's end in Troon, it would seem to be the last place to discover a fantastic restaurant. The menu, relatively extensive, is fairly plain and there are lots of daily dishes. The food is wonderful and the staff are... More
