We ate here twice during TT week mainly due to the lack of chips ! We were based in Ramsey for 7 days, so needed to find a dinner every night. Apart from Indian and Chinese, everywhere else seemed to offer meals mainly accompanied by chips. The fish pie was excellent with some lightly steamed veg. Soup was very tasty.... More

My wife and I had visited here about 3 years ago and had had a nice evening meal so we decided to visit again. Oh how I wished we had not! We arrived at the restaurant at opening time and were shown to a pleasant table by the window overlooking the harbour. We were the only people there at the... More

This restaurant, in a lovely location in the port of Ramsey, offers traditional cuisine with no frills and a friendly service. Definitely a good address.

Visited with my wife & sister for lunch in August 2016. We received a warm welcome & were taken to our table. It is a surprisingly large establishment but only one other couple dined there whilst we were there, which may tell a tale. Whilst waiting for the food we could not believe the interior decor, which looked like it... More

The varied menu offered something for all of our group: bistro style to a more traditional selection. Helpful and courteous staff enhanced our evening. Contrary to a previous post, as non-locals we were made very welcome.

We found a limited number of restaurants for a Tuesday lunch and the harbour bistro looked the best of the options open. The menu on the outside gave an almost French feel. The welcome and overall service was excellent. Unfortunately the food was quite basic and not what I would describe as "bistro" but more normal English pub fayre. Overall... More

Staying locally for the TT races and decided to try Harbour Bistro for an evening meal...didn't even make it through the door only to be met by the landlord who told us that the locals had 'used their brains and booked all the tables'. Quite clearly only interested in serving his regulars and not in accommodating tourists.
