“Fantastic food, excellent price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012 via mobile

My family and I ate here last Thursday and it certainly didn't disappoint. Mum and dad had fish soup which they raved about, I had mussels, succulent and plentiful - only one unopened.
For mains we had cod with leek and salmon - all fresh rich and tasty. House wine was lovely as well. For 4 people - 2 desserts and 4 drinks the bill was under 70!
Lovely friendly service - will be back over Christmas x

“Brilliant Seafood Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

Was recommended as a great seafood & steak restaurant so went along with some business friends last Wednesday and was not let down - the place was busy with a good ambience and buzz about it - food was superb especially the dish of the day which was a grilled seafood platter - lots of fresh fish grilled to perfection - probably best I have tasted in years - service was very good and wines were great value for the quality.

“Excellent mid week lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

This great restuarant has been around for a long time but it had been about a year since our last visit. My husband and I took our friend who was visiting from California, It was almost 3pm before we entered the restaurant - which serves lunch up until 3.30pm. Although the restaurant was very quiet at that time, we were warmly greeted by the waiter and were not hurried to place our order even though we did take a bit of time to decide as the choice from the set lunch menu was so good. It's obvious that the chef and owners alike are keen to offer the best of produce and service to the diners. I would say that satisfaction will be guaranteed.

Thank you for the great review. We change our lunch and pre theatre menu every month using seasonal produce so next time you visit, I am sure you will find a few more favourites!

“Great little fish restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2012

Four of us were looking for a quick but good meal before a big soccer game in Glasgow. Great menu and lovely staff. Everyone was pleased by their meals. Try the Cullen skink, a traditional Scottish dish, smoked haddock, potatoes and cream. Fantastic! Desserts were excellent. Satisfaction all around.
