We visited with my 90+ mother - and we all loved it! Lemon Sole and Hake were excellent main courses, as were the wonderful "queenies" we had for starters. Well worth a visit.

This looked like an appropriate restaurant to try the island's delicacy Queenies. A small sweet scallop. The restaurant is small with a real sea atmosphere; scrubbed wooden tables and simple decor. Friendly staff and a chef who's happy to discuss the food he's preparing. The...More

This is simply the best fish restaurant on the island. Although quite small it has a great atmosphere and really friendly staff. The seafood is superb and the desserts are mouthwatering.

But challenging to find the fish in an over battered log. Chips very greasy and undercooked. Overall a very bad choice. Wondering why a contemporary switch hasn't been made to tempura batter. Really dusapointed with what was supposed to be a celebratory meal. My partner's...More

Not that I'm aware of although they like you to be smartly dressed at weekends.
Sir - having chosen to besmirch my character on this website and lied about our correspondence (my letter to you was dated and sent 13 Sep - accept I got the date wrong in my posting) - so please provide details of your advocate to allow my solicitor to pursue your perverse statements through the courts. I am neither 'rude' nor 'condescending' and what you describe as a 'tirade' was a fair report of the food that your team/suppliers provided - I still shudder at the memory of at least 3 instances of approx 2.5 inch long by 1/2 inch wide pieces of crab shell in the 'coriander' soup - life-threatening to be sure. Your mother's misaddressed e-mail was OK by me and whilst some of the points were unusual (e.g. to engage with your suppliers directly) it offered a £50 voucher which if we determined we'd ever revisit the IoM and your restaurant we would have taken up (neither of these appeals to us). Judging from your responses to other 'negative' reviews on this site you are a rude and uncaring provender that deserves no happy clients. Your suggestion that we should have returned to discuss our 'niggles' was absurd - we were on holiday and not minded to return/waste time on Tanroagan engagement. John
