Beautiful Food

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

We had an extremely good lunch. It was very busy but we were not kept waiting at all. We were unfortunate though because the three of us who had oysters were very ill the next day. A lesson perhaps is stay away from oysters! A shame as it's fame is an Oyster bar.

I had Mussels with Chile, Ginger and Coriander - fabulous - followed by Crab Thermidor - very good and a glass of dry white wine. My wife's dietary needs were very well catered for and she had two dishes not present on the menu; thank you very much. Haddock Goujons, then Sea Bass cooked to suit her needs made her... More

We visit this gem on the pier regularly and have never been disappointed. However, the last time we went I was a bit disappointed to be served supermarket bread and, although I love the place, they could do something more professional than a mobile gas heater. It's a high ceiling and hard to heat but sometimes it's a bit cold.... More
