Our first visit back after many years and we were suitably impressed. With Raf at the helm think this little gem will be a winner. Lovely tasty food and great service. Veal cannelloni I'm still dreaming about and our girls loved the mussels. Definately will be back.

We had the Goat cheese with Caramelized onions for starter, Veal Cannelloni as entree and was absolutely impressed with both. Will definitely eat here again soon!

I was really looking forward to this restaurant opening under new management however I was really disappointed. The staff were welcoming and pleasant however each one of them asked regularly if everything was ok. In fact they all asked at every course, interrupting conversation. This was annoying. The food was, at best, mediocre. Adding mixed lettuce and supermarket chillie dipping sauce to 5 prawns does not warrant the price of the starter. The prawns in a friends prawn cocktail were rubbery and tasteless. Mains were disappointing. Coffee cups were whipped away before we indicated that we wanted to pay which was not the norm for a restaurant. Made us think they wanted rid of us even although it was early. Unfortunately it has the same seats as before being taken over, which are so uncomfortable that you don't want to spend the entire evening there, so we went to the Commodore for a nightcap instead. There is now so much competition in Helensburgh that they will really need to up their game to compete. Wine was well priced.

Had 2 meals here recently and couldn't fault a thing. There's been a change of ownership and menu, but it is in keeping with the quality of the previous owner. Intimate surroundings, with a very regular clientele, makes this place a wee hidden. gem

First meal at Mira Mare with my wife and family from Canada. The meal was fantastic, the goats cheese starter was excellent! The staff were polite and keen to help without being a pain. The chef checked with us later to make sure we had enjoyed our meal, a really nice touch. The atmosphere was so relaxed and cosy that we will be going back soon!
