Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The two rating is for the decent service and nothing for the food which was terrible. Absolutely tasteless - very disappointing.

Was out for a family dinner and decided to book this place. Nice little restaurant not far from Dumfries town centre. The service was good and the food was delicious. Would happily book another meal here.

We chose the wrong food, which was ok but not great. Hindsight being a good thing we should have had pizzas which looked really good . The atmosphere was somewhat chilly after we’d changed our mind about our starter and I heard us being discussed....Very unprofessional. We would not returnMore

Whole family had pizzas and garlic focaccia. Have you say as pizza fans we were very impressed. Delicious 😋. Very attentive staff with excellent service. Only problem were the flies or it would have been 5 stars.

Came here during a weekend away at nunland hillside lodges as we had read the good reviews online. Looks very small when entering but has more seating through the back which unfortunately we didn’t get to see as I’m assuming it was for larger groups....Was quiet when we went in but filled up quickly after. We were sat at the front which was at the main entrance and I was freezing so although the food was lovely I wanted to get back to the car for a heat. Was quite cramped due to space so felt like we were sitting with the couple at the table next to us. Saying that the food made up for it. Ordered the red snapper on the bone which I’d never had before and the guy seen me picking at it and showed me how to separate the bone from the fish which helped as I would probably have left half the fish. Just a pity I was so cold otherwise we would have stayed a bit longer and had dessert and another couple drinks.More

Lovely food but the restaurant is very cold , so it didn’t take long for food to get cold too. I’ve never sat through a three course meal with my coat on the entire time in a restaurant and I was not the only table...that kept their coats on . I asked to be moved from the table they sat us at as the lights are that dim I couldn’t see the menu and I also noticed the other table next to us the lady put her torch on on her phone to look at the menu . £106 lighter for being cold while trying to enjoy a night out. Won’t be back. I did mention to waitress if they have any heating and she replied I don’t think it’s on . I also mentioned to the owner that he needs to put some heating on in his restaurant. Restaurant was not busy and I can now understand why.More

We stopped on the way back from the ferry. It was one of the only places open on the rainy Tuesday night right at the beginning of January. Fabulous food. Highly recommend the Italian summer pizza, covered in fresh hand torn buffalo mozzarella, Parmesan, rocket...and cherry tomatoes, and so so tasty. My 5 year old daughter asked if we can come back again because she loved her pizza so much.More

Had a lovely meal with a friend, I had the penne divola and it was lovely along with chips I shared. My friend had the mushroom risotto and said it was the best she's had. We both had pudding sticky toffee pudding and a tirramasi...which was absolutely lovely. I will definitely be back. Great customer service and great food. 😍More
