Lovely and atmospheric restaurant situated on Troon harbour. Attentive service with a wonderful choice of starters and mains for fish lovers.

Small venue in the fishing harbour so the fish could not be any fresher. Lovely surroundings in a high vaulted room with lots of interesting memorabilia on the walls. No printed menu with everything displayed on a blackboard makes for a constantly changing menu based on availability. Very friendly and helpful service and good value. Best to book as it... More

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.

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
