We visited on a Tuesday evening and there were plenty seats but I'm sure you would be wiser to book at weekends. We shared a simple starter of focaccia topped with Parmesan and baked to perfection....very tasty. mains took a while to appear as they were prepared from scratch whereas those ordering pastas dishes were served quickly from pre-pared pots. My cod chunks were fresh and flavoursome with mushrooms in a tasty sauce. Fresh roasted vegetables were perfect and fennel seeds gave a crunchiness and added flavour. My wife opted for prawn & chorizo which was a big portion of protein served with a very tasty light chilli sauce and same veggies as myself. Staff were very helpful and the food bill was only £31.

Friendly and welcoming Italian restaurant. Had a good meal though seriously large portions - actually a little off putting for me but this may appeal to other diners! Would have no hesitation in returning.

The proprietors of our bed and breakfast highly recommended this restaurant, but we ended up not having such a good experience. We visited here on a Friday night. It was not crowded when we entered, but it did get crowded very quickly. There were only two servers covering the whole restaurant. Everything was slow--getting menus, ordering drinks, then food, etc., etc. The wrong wine was brought to my husband and the waitress was actually surly when it was called to her attention. It actually seemed like we were a bother to the waitress because we were there--not a very pleasant dining experience. On a week-end night it would seem that a popular restaurant would have enough staff to handle diners. We would not go back.

This is a lovely bistro, we have visited this restaurant every year for the last 4 years we have went to Callendar and always received excellent service and a lovely meal. You are definitely best to book and reasonably priced aswell.
