“Family day out”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

Popped in on a whim on the way back from a weekend on the isle of Bute, so glad that we did as the food was terrific. Good value and great service and a lovely view to enjoy.

“3rd visit”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

Have visited twice before for dinner which on both occasions were excellent however on this occasion it was for lunch and it was most disappointing. Cullen Skink not a true Cullen Skink soup although it is on menu as having bacon in it. Fish content was abysmal. Portion similar to a child's. Pork Escalope itself could have been more tender however the vegetables accompanying this main were good. Hope this was a one off.

“A wee night to remember”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

Had a lovely meal with my family (4 adults and 2 kids) at the waterfront. The staff were friendly and attentive couldn't fault them and the kids were made to feel special as well.
The menu is varied, reasonably price and the food is well made and presented.
Couple of points that prevented me from rating it 5 stars was there were no langoustines. Which is quite disappointing when you mouths all set from them bad boys!! & we expected the duck skin to be crispy. Would definitely go back to one of the best restaurants in Ayr.
