A bit difficult to find, but worth it. Tucked away at the end of the working docks. The food was outstanding, the oysters were fresh and delicious.

Been here several times and it never disappoints. Seafood good and fresh. Simple but tasty menu. Reasonably priced wines. Great location watching the finishing boats tie up at night (several seals in the harbour hopefully for some scraps too!)

I reviewed McCallum's last year, however, have visited a few times since then, most recently a few days ago. Once again, we were not disappointed. The food was excellent and the staff were lovely. Such a lovely comfortable and relaxed environment, not pretentious in any way - it is all about the food. There is no menu to browse in... More

If you love fish and seafood then MacCallums is the place to go in Troon. I could have picked everything from the menu. The MacCallum specialities are definitely worth trying. The staff are excellent, very knowledgeable and helped recommend dishses for us. We walked to the restaurant - 10-15 minutes from Troon centre, but nice to stretch the legs before... More

MacCallum's Oyster Bar is just so good. I genuinely think that this is the best restaurant that I have been to in Scotland. We met friends there who had never previously gone as far as the end of Troon harbour where the fishing boats unload which is where MacCallum's is situated. They were amazed at how good it was and...

As a resident of Troon this restaurant was always the "go to" place for quality fresh seafood. Sadly it has been the focus of adverse publicity due to critical food & hygiene inspections. This unfortunately tarnishes the reputation of what appears still to be at "front of shop" a good eating place.

If you want an out of the way sea food place, try this one. Has a friendly atmosphere and attentive waiters. Food was nicely done, a tad expensive. Wide range of drinks available. If I have to mention one bad point, it was the coffee, they made it using boiling water, when it should be allowed to cool slightly before... More

Have never been disappointed after many visits to this restaurant. There is nothing "fancy" about it, but the service is good and the fish is as fresh as it can be. Lobster is especially good.
