Tried the dolphin cafe for a change after a recommendation from a co-worker. Our food was cooked fresh as we waited, nice polite staff & clean premises, food was nice but slightly more expensive than other local restaurants

We often go to Dolpin cafe for our fresh Fish and chips. You can not get any fresher fish than there as its right next to the fishing boats and fish market at the harbour. Never had any bad experience xx

I ordered Cullen Skink and a hamburger. The soup arrived cold. I sent it back...it was now hot, but watery with little to no fish...it was just a runny cream soup. My hamburger was served with hard dry reheated fries, which were inedible. The bun was dry and stale. The meat was nothing to shout about and the lone peice... More

Always get a good meal here. Cannot fault it at all. :) I always opt for fish supper, whereas hubby has chicken fillets. In here at least once a month.
