“With a little more salmon would be pefect!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2014

We ate here on Sunday 24th August and were made very welcome everyone working there from the minute I popped in to book earlier in the day through to the minute we left. We ate from the early evening menu , which is fantastic value for money and would have been perfect if my salmon fishcake had a little more salmon and a little less mash potato in it. Other than that little niggle all three courses we had were very tasty - lovely cheesecake (seems to be atheme for me!)
The restaurant was very busy but the atmosphere was very relaxed and friendly and the waiting staff didn't make us feel rushed, took the time to chat and were happy to make recommendations - they obviously know the menu well!
Would defintely visit a Loch Fyne restaurant again! If you like fish and seafood - make sure you do too!

“Top form!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2014 via mobile

Eight for lunch yesterday, had a good table in the courtyard, and looked after by Ione.Had starters of squid, herring and oysters. For Mains, the majority of us had the "special" of lemon sole, which was sizeable and tremendously fresh...All in all a "cracking" experience, even our "Vegan" was well looked after, with considerable care.Well done to Jason and his team!

“NEVER going back there!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2014

Table was booked for 4 on a Saturday evening. Turned up and our table was taken and was told they could "squeeze us in somewhere else."
Asked for water, water took 20minuets as didn't have any glasses and ran out of a jug for tap water. Menus also took 15minuets to bring out. Had to go to the bar to ask to order 25minuets later still not being asked if we would like drinks. Waitress was running up and down throwing a bread basket (literally) on our table. Food took a hour to arrive. When it it came there was not enough cutlery as they had also ran out. Also 2 meals look like that had been sat under heat before coming to our table. Again plates we're left on our table after finishing our meal and we're sat there for a good 20minuets. Eventually got given the dessert menu after ordering still the waitress had not cleared the whole table, so therefor had to ask another waiter to remove our plates.
Dessert came, again no cutlery!!!!! I ordered creme brûlée more like scrambled egg with sugar on top.
Over all VERY disappointed and will never go back and will tell alot of people not to go there in the future. A lot of other customers that evening also looked very disappointed and I'm sure they share the same views.

“Really nice but not spectacular”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2014 via mobile

A nice fish restaurant with a friendly and busy atmosphere. We had two complimentary oysters <lovely>, the Gilt Head Bream and a bucket if mussels.... The food was nice but not hugely plentiful and we realised that the bread hadn't been served as we were leaving. Overall a pleasant meal and we will return.

“Excellent food, excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2014

Our waiter was excellent - friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Our meals were really very good - the gilt head bream was delicious - with clams and samphire. One of the tastiest things I've eaten for a while.
