Ate at McFarlane's midweek when it was much quieter than at the weekend. The food was excellent, portions were ample and all 4 of us enjoyed what we had chosen. The ambience was good and the waiting staff were friendly and accommodating. One minor suggestion would be ( as it was a quiet evening) that a member of staff might... More

Having had a friend over from Phoenix who enjoys dining out and we choose to visit Roy and his staff on one of the nights out. The food is always of an excellent standard and matching service. I went for the lobster and queenies, excellent value for money and those with me all enjoyed their meal and night out. The... More

Booked in advance to celebrate our last night on the island, and what a tremendous way to wrap up a great week. Very busy, and a bit noisy, but only to be expected on a Saturday evening. The food more than compensated, starting with an excellent local beef carpaccio followed by melt-in-the-mouth pork belly, while my wife enjoyed a classic... More

we went here with another couple and had never been before so didn't know what to expect. The food was absolutely incredible. I couldn't fault anything and the service was again brilliant. We will definitely go back but for a special occasion as we found it quite pricey.

Thought we would celebrate a new promotion and treat ourselves as we had heard many good reviews on the newly refurbished McFarlanes. We were not disappointed. I thought the food was absolutely superb and the service to match. Wasn't too keen on the new décor, perhaps just really preferred the old booths. Can't wait to return, lovely dining experience.

This is to be recommended highly. Good ambience and food - menu is varied and well cooked. Staff are helpful. Do not fail to try their home made ice cream - many usual flavours.

Ten of us enjoyed dinner at this popular restaurant and the food and service was excellent. The menu was varied and interesting, something for everyone. If you really want to eat there, its worth booking.

We had not visited Macfarlanes for years as, for a while,it was not open at lunchtimes, It is now, and what a great place it is. The starters - cheese souffle and beef carpaccio were outstanding - the souffle is one of the best I've had in ages. The mains were equally brilliant - beautifully cooked hake and a near... More

I found it hard to recommend anywhere to eat in Douglas until I ate at Macfarlanes! The meal was beautiful and the staff were accommodating. I really can't wait to go back. Very reasonable for what we ordered as well!
