I've had a full evening meal here once a couple of years ago with a group of about 10, and more recently have stopped for a coffee and snack at various times of day on a number of occasions. It is a unique and special place where attention to detail and quality is always top priority. Locals come here, and in the morning there is a buzz, as folk drop in for a coffee and a chat.
It is a small restaurant and opening hours are at a premium, especially for evening meals, so I recommend you make enquiries well in advance, to be in the right place at the right time and to be able to reserve a table.

This place is great. Good food and friendly efficient service so no complaints. It doesn't pretend to be what it is not it terms of haute cusine but sometimes that is exactly what you need - it delivers on all fronts. My only gripe is that they feel there is not enough custom to keep it open longer in the season or to service the local resident community during the winter but if economics dictate it so who am I to argue (I personally believe that local Councils should consider subsidies to allow businesses like this to open all year round as it would pay itself back in other benefits!

Stopped off here whilst waiting to board a ferry. Lovely little tearoom. Friendly and efficient service. Hubby and I had scones with tea - delicious! Worth a visit.
