When we visited we received a warm welcome from one of the hosts, and were shown to a table after a little Waite. We ordered a range of dishes some cider. I have to say that was the only time I have tasted a cider that had a Speyside peaty after taste, downright weird. Our party of four were split... More

We have had a number of fantastic lunches here. The super friendly staff are happy to recommend wine and dishes (not just the most expensive). It is just such a relaxed place t eat either as a romantic couple on our own or with the full family and grandchild rent too!

Great choice of dishes on the menu. Staff were very friendly and the restaurant/bar has a lovely atmosphere. Great that it is dog friendly (think you should promote this more as we almost didn't come as we thought you were not) Portions could be slightly larger for the price. Would definitely return.

As there was only 2 of us, we unfortunately couldn't have every tapas dish that we fancied. We had the famous chorizo which definitely lived up to its reputation and the prawns which were also delicious. From the specials board we had pork balls (good) and pequeno peppers stuffed with beef which were very good and not something we'd come... More

We had a really good meal here after a long day walking. Just order what you fancy from the menu, depending on how hungry you are. Its all really tasty, but the chorizo in cider is particularly good. One tip is to order in stages, as the service is quick and you can end up with a table full of... More

We visited here based on tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. It has a fantastic tapas selection and also a specials board. We ordered off both, asking our waitress who was very friendly and helpful. The food was all fantastic. The highlights for us was the chorizo in cider and the tortilla.

As a former local to the area, whenever I return I make an extra special effort to eat here. The food is delicious, the atmosphere is buzzing and they have an exceedingly good range of drinks to accompany your meal, or just to enjoy and take in the ambience. I have to say I do really love this place. The... More

We were disappointed not to be able to get a table when we went to try and get dinner one evening, as this restaurant had been recommended by one of the previous occupiers of our holiday cottage. Even sadder that we couldn't book for the next evening! However, we did manage to get in at lunchtime and had a really... More
