My mom and I stopped in for a bite in the upstairs restaurant. Beautiful views and delicious food at reasonable prices. A great place to try haggis, recommended by the waitress.

Have eaten here a number of times both winter and summer visits. Good food at reasonable prices. A good menu selection. High street location with views over the estuary. Would recommend eating in either the restaurant or bar. Friendly staff and good service.

Worth a visit as you walk the main strip. A lounge on one side, and a bar on the other. Also serves food.
