Visited for a special occasion and took the waiter's recommendation of the charcoal grilled fish and crustaceans for two. Absolutely fantastic! We've traveled widely in Italy and then found the best seafood restaurant right here in Scotland. Friendly, helpful staff and great food.

Great food, simply done but cooked perfectly! Few options, fish or mollusks with a couple options for starters. It’s obvious everyone loves working there because it comes across in their attitude and the care they put into what goes on the plate.
