4 of us hoping for a different experience to the norm in this area, but unfortunately not. Food was nice although small portions. The atmosphere and table layout more suited to a cafe and not a restaurant, although the bill at the end was in the restaurant price bracket. Once the bill had been presented it was obvious the staff... More

Ate here as a family of four last weekend whilst on an overnight stay in Thurso. Walked in and was able to get a table although the restaurant filled up very quickly with customers who had pre-booked. Had really nice African dishes and great deserts from the specials board. Service was quick and friendly and we all thoroughly enjoyed our... More

Beautiful place with beautiful food that is not only nice to look at, but brilliant to eat! However, one of us was Veg, and they didn't really have any options.

Tried this place for the first time with friends. Booked for eight pm and were a little surprised at the cafe experience but with restaurant prices. Scratched table with no cloth is not really what we want for an evening restaurant meal. No ambience or atmosphere. They started to turn off the lights on us at 9.40 and were obviously... More

We visited here after a very cold day trip to John O'Groats. We knew what we wanted, coffee and Fish and Chips. We were greeted and seated by a lovely lady and our order was swiftly taken. Although we knew what we wanted the menu selection looked good and was very reasonably priced. The food came quickly and was a... More

Very busy little place and a bit cosy (i.e. tables rather close together) but beautiful fresh food that is well worth the extra wait (the night we went they were short staffed). Food was excellent and prices very reasonable. Had a lovely time and will be visiting again soon.

Lovely little restaurant overlooking the beach. Have been there a couple of times and the fish and chips is very good. The waiter who looked after us was charming and persuaded us to try the cheesecake...Yum! Reasonably priced wines and good beers.

Found this restaurant by chance when we popped in for a quick lunch whilst on holiday nearby. We liked it so booked it for my 60th Birthday dinner later in the week. We opted for the Christmas menu, which has just started and were not disappointed at all! Well, only in that I couldn't eat all my cheeseboard nor the... More

This restaurant is well situated with a lovely view across the bay. We enjoyed a delicious seafood meal here. The waiters were attentive and efficient and the restaurant has a welcoming, cosy atmosphere.
