Shame about the portion sizes. Less fancy but bigger portions would be nice especially at lunchtime.

Being my favourite restaurant in Stonehaven under the old owners, I was gutted when it shut and very excited when I heard it had new owners. I'm happy to say it is still my favourite restaurant. The menu is varied and the wine is excellent. I ordered the lobster salad as a starter, satisfied that they were not stingy with... More

Perfect sized portions, fairly priced, friendly staff. We had a meal here on Saturday and expectations were high having been fans of the Carron under its last owners. The menu is small but there was something for everyone, we all had something different and it was clean plates all round. A lovely evening!

This was our first visit since the reopening having been regulars with the previous owners. First impression was they've packed way too many tables in so you're now elbow to elbow completely ruining the ambiance enjoyed before. There was a table free next to the feature mirror but was told by a surly waitress that it was taken (we left... More

3 of us decided to get together at the re-opened Carron Restaurant in Stonehaven. New owners, Charlotte & Lee have developed a completely new menu and I was keen to visit and check it out. Due to unforeseen circumstances, we ended up going a little bit later and didn't order till 1.45pm. However the waiting staff were very accommodating and... More

Took a friend there for dinner last night as I have wanted to try the Carron since it re-opened and as i am not in town often this was my only choice. We arrived just after 9pm (last orders at 9:30) and were immediately made to feel very welcome. The atmosphere is great and the restaurant was still quite busy.... More

We had dinner there on 22 August and our 2nd time since the new owners took over. The cocktails we ordered to start were delicious. I had the halibut for my main course and it was cooked to perfection really lovey. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and the new owners are doing really well and are a great couple.... More

Had a great late afternoon meal at the Carron for the first time since it has re-opened. The food was up to the same standard as previously but with the obvious changes you'd expect from new management. The staff were excellent and couldn't have been more gracious in helping out with our 10 month old baby. It is a real... More

We were looking forward to our first meal at the re-opened Carron Restaurant and were not disappointed. Staff are lovely and friendly and well informed on the menus. We found the menu choice excellent, there is a separate one for vegetarians and daily specials. Now to the most important part, the food, we loved all our choices and the combination... More
