“Lovely food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

I would recommend a visit to this restaurant. It doesnt look much from the outside but the food is fantastic, the chef even came out to introduce himself. The only downside was the Kir Royale was a bit flat, but it was really cheap so we didnt complain.

“Nice lunch menu”

Had a lovely meal lunchtime for 4 adults and 4 kids. Good value menu and very tasty. Nice selection. Didn't look like child friendly initially but was very good for kids.

I would say that the waiting staff were very nice and helpful, food disappointing and overpriced, overall very average.

“A can of dog food would make for a more enjoyable meal!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

The last night of our weekend on Arran my Father decided to treat my Mum, my wife and I and my sister to dinner in this restaurant.
To say the food was dissapointing is an under statement as it wasn't even fit for pigs. The only words that accurately describe what was served on our plates are swear words.
I can honestly say that not a single item of food that was served to us was absolutely anywhere near restaurant quality.
To the person who said that people who give a bad review of the food are ignorant, you are a complete moron and probably see an Asda value microwave meal as an 'a la carte' dining experience.
As my Father isn't one for complaining he paid the bill which was well in excess of £100 and we all left feeling like it had been a bad ending to an otherwise enjoyable weekend on Arran.
