The owner Ambrish always remembers us & greets us warmly & has a chat after dinner. My partner & I are both vegetarian, my parents are not. This place has the... read more

I was really looking forward to trying out this restaurant. First of all I have to say none of my complaints are about the service. It was attentive and speedy. The food however left a lot to be desired. I started with the game "pie". Now as a chef myself I am all for interesting deconstructions and platings but this... More

Delicious meal tonight - the spinach roulade with chick pea stew was really tasty. As was the pear crumble - all beautifully presented, something you don't get in other restaurants at these very reasonable prices. Our party of 6 ordered different dishes and all the food was excellent. Booked in the afternoon for the early table and had plenty of... More

Always visit when we are in Gourock and it just gets better and better! There was six of us and we all had an excellent meal! It was served at just the right time! We were never rushed and in all had a lovely relaxed meal in a friendly environment!

Spicy Portugese pork, followed by pear crumble. Washed down with Prosecco. Fantastic service and ambiance. I'll be back

This must be one of the tiniest restaurants I've been in but that certainly doesn't reflect on the quality of the food or the service. Just want a quiet cuppa? This is the place - lots of lovely teas and also coffee served just the way you like it. Afternoon Tea? A wonderful selection of sandwiches (vegetarian option available) and... More

My family are regulars to the restaurant and I cannot fault any meals I've ever had! I thought it was about time I should review as my mother, sister and I had a meal there last night and as usual it was delicious! I had the cannelloni with pork to start which was so tasty, perfectly seasoned and not too... More

Having been to the bistro a number of times we are sorry to say we will not return! We booked our table for 7 o'clock arriving around 7.10pm and had no sooner sat down than the menu was produced. Wine, starters and main meal being ordered, it was no time at all before the starter appeared and when finished the... More

Dear customer, you said you have eaten with us 'a number of times' & I must assume they were good experiences. While you never reviewed those, I am disappointed that the one time we did not seem to meet your expectations you decided to write a review. All tables of 2 on a weekend are given 1 and a 1/2...

I've now been here a few times, both for an intimate birthday dinner with my husband and also with my family. Cannot find any reason for fault in this charming restaurant. I wasn't sure how it would work initially with the small space, considering privacy from other patrons, however, the layout lends itself to not feeling as if you're being... More

Absolute gem of a place. Outstanding meal with the most delightful and accommodating personnel. Nothing to much trouble and happy to adapt to all tastes and quirks of our party. It will be no. 1 on my list for future
