Had a meal at the Oyster Bar last week, it was delicious. The food was hot and served well by prompt and efficient waitresses. We had a good selection of wines to choose from and the decor was original and interesting. I wouldn't hesitate to come back here for another meal, Highly recommend it.

All I can say is that they must not have too many people applying for jobs at this restaurant. The food is amazing, the chef clearly knows how to make memorable tasty food. We had a wonderful experience at the fish and chips take away restaurant so we came back for the dining room experience hoping for another great dining... More

Came here the other day with my girlfriend and was really pleasantly surprised. All the fish we had was so beautifully fresh that it didn't surprise me when I was told they had a fish mongers in glasgow. My girlfriend isn't the biggest fish lover about but even she wants to go back for more.

Not much to look at from the outside and located in a working harbour but the food here was really very good. My wife said her lemon sole was the best she had ever tasted which is saying something as she is a fish lover and although I am not I was very happy with the Turbot tempura. In fact... More

For starters we ordered mussels and prawn tempura - really tasty, fresh and mussels cooked to absolute perfection. Mains were scallops and monkfish - both lovely. Chips and vegetables are extra but each dish we had came with a lovely salad and dressing. Had to ask for bread for the table. Chips arrived well after the mains had been served.... More

Having been introduced to this gem of a restaurant by locals during a golf outing to Troon, it did not disappoint. In fact, it over-performed. The decor is classic sea shack material with just enough nice appointments to make the interior nautically quaint. The selections are plentiful, but not too many to be overwhelming. The fish is as fresh as... More

Dinner in this interesting fish/seafood restaurant was booked by local food cognoscenti in our party of 16 otherwise us Sassenachs may have missed it on our recent golfing trip to the west coast. It is not located in the most beautiful setting but then the building used to be the hydraulic pump house that fed all the dockside cranes and... More
