A nice friendly yet stylish restaurant which is very busy most of the time. Many dishes are local ingredients and also fresh from the sea. Suggest booking in advance.

Had a very pleasant dinner here. It was a Thursday night and was really busy so glad we booked. The emphasis is on fish and seafood but there is a good selection of meat dishes too. All food was well cooked and presented. My crab and lobster tail crepe as a starter was exceptional. Comprehensive wine list. Good service too.

We stumbled upon this place after reading these great reviews. They managed to squeeze us in as we hadn't booked which we were so grateful for as after that they had to turn people away. It had a lovely atmosphere and the staff were really friendly and helpful. The food was absolutely delicious (scallops wrapped in bacon to start andate... More

We had a delicious meal here one Saturday lunchtime. I had the dish of the day which was lobster and crab, it was delicious. The rest of my dining companions each had something different and each meal was enjoyed by all.

I must say that this is by far the best resteraunt in the whole of Dumfries and Galloway it's a must to go visit for everyone. They cater for children and vegetarians and I don't mean food that is prepared in the microwave either like most resteraunts do for vegetarians!!!!the best seafood locally caught I am told and its says...

A deceptively simple exterior conceals a superior seafood restaurant, where you'd be wise to book ahead, such is its well-deserved popularity. Service was prompt and friendly, and each course was delicious. A lovely experience.

Didn't live up to our expectations of a top meal given its rating. Waterfront much better, freshest of fish and better prices.

Ate here twice in 2 days as we were lucky to get a cancellation. Food is amazing and you really can't choose a bad meal. The highlight is the lobster and crab. It's so fresh that you'll never want to eat anything else. A particular highlight was the crab and lobster crepe with thermidor sauce - lots of juicy chunks... More

Moan first, not all the waitresses were as friendly as they could be. Other than that the food was excellent if a little pricey, the wine mediocre, the decor okay. Oh yeah, the cutlery is a work of art. Suffice to say we didn't go back on our second night in Portpatrick.

Thank Marc S
