I haven't eaten out much in the area, so I may be judging it unfairly, but I thought the prices here seemed a little high compared to what I'm used to in southern England. So I've have dropped a star for this - perhaps unfairly...More

This restaurant provided an average Cullen Skink, and some cold and wangy chips. They didn’t have an appropriate spoon for the take away soup, providing only tiny plastic teaspoons. All a bit odd, I think they rest on their laurels because of their location. Try...More

I find this review very strange, as we get nothing but praise for our renowned Cullen skink, as we are waiting on spoons coming in you were given a small one, normally still able to eat with, chips certainly would not be cold,

We first found this place in 2008 when we had our wedding dinner here, and then returned there two years later. So it was quite obvious we would choose this for our 10th wedding anniversary as well. The monk fish was as wonderful and the...More

Our lunch was fantastic! 13yr old tried the langoustines and loved them. My haddock (fish & chips) was extremely tasty. Other son had the mussels seasoned with Thai seasoning and they had a wonderful flavor. Small place, but great food!!

This small restaurant situated near the port was a disappointment. The waiters were arrogant and unfriendly. There was no wifi available and only one single rest room for the whole restaurant, they have not even a hanger for the coats. The fish and chips were...More
