“Great Value”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

We had a lovely meal at this restaurant before going to see the "Sunshine on Leith" film night at the Sealife Centre. Great night all round. Staff very pleasant, service excellent and thoroughly enjoyed the food and wine. Such generous helpings couldn't manage a pudding.

“The best food in BALLOCH! *fact!”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

I was a bit apprehensive trying this restaurant as I loved it before it was taken over by the new owner. I'm so glad I did! The food it 'out of this world!'. I have been 3 times now and can't wait to go back. Got my parents vouchers and they said its the nicest food they have tasted! Very reasonable prices £9.99-£12.99 2/3 course and also have a larger menu. You have to give this place a try :)...you'll love it!

“Best steak in the local area ”
Reviewed October 30, 2013 via mobile

It was a quiet Wednesday and we entered and we were quickly greeted by a member of staff who sat us down and asked for drinks. I ordered the chicken liver parfait and steak. The chicken liver parfait was great and the steak was out of this world. Best steak I've had in the local area for years! Great atmosphere, great food, great staff! What more could you want?
