“Not loch side!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

Went here for lunch, the waitress was good attentive but not in ur face.
The food was excellent , well presented and
Good value for money.
My only slight complaint is that it was not on the loch side, so if u r going here for food with a view - don't , but if u want good food & good service worth a visit.

“New and trying hard”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

The new owner is trying very hard and it shows. We have been several times since he took over, and can say it is a vast improvement on the Sarti ownership, which was nothing like their great restaurants in Glasgow. we loved the beefburgers, and the fish was the best in the area. The restaurant is friendlier, warmer, and has a nicer atmosphere. The only thing we didn't like was the ladies' toilets. They are still unchanged from the days when it was Scarpetta - far too small, too tight, and not nice to use.
