Friendly, attentive staff, really lovely food with a wide choice, nice, animated atmosphere on the evening we visited. Not surprisingly, it's very popular so best to book.

We ordered the seafood platter and the children were so engrossed in it we ordered the clams instead for ourselves. We finished off with dessert and then I had a coffee....after all the food we consumed we couldn't have asked for more. The lady who served us was a little back offish but was efficient. At the end she did... More

Super fish restaurant ... Lots of choice and loads of specials. Busy restaurant, so recommend you book ahead. Between us we had mussels, fish cake, sea food platter, sea bass, lemon sole... All fresh and well cooked. Quite pricey, but worth it!

Delicious fish dishes. What more can you say? Everything is perfect and there's a good wine list to wash it down.

Nice clean well-run restaurant..... feather in the cap for Scottish catering. Good-quality local fish, decently cooked, if bordering on plain (lobster over-cooked). Stay clear of any meat - chicken, steak.... all overcooked and not to the kitchen's sweet-point, to my regret. Would re-visit but will learn from this third experience.
