Gave a nice friend lobster for lunch here with a very nice, if expensive bottle of Sancerre, but never again. I am sure the lobster was cooked from frozen, possibly also from the day before and re heated. Never eaten such badly overcooked lobster, fibrous...More

Great cosy restaurant, delicious and elegant cuisine and fresh sea products. Only downside is the price (especially at lunch time) but quality and taste have a price and you will not be disappointed. Also, staff is very friendly.

We are a family run restaurant situated on the historic quayside in Peel. Diners can enjoy views across the marina, ancient castle and rolling hills (ideal for a stroll before or after a meal). Inside, diners can also enjoy views of the chefs at work in our open view kitchen preparing and cooking food freshly to order. Our menu features local flavours and tastes with fresh seafood, meats and vegetarian choices. We are proud of the islands suppliers and produces and use wherever possible as much locally sourced ingredients and produce. For our younger guests we have our Little Pirates menu, designed especially for kids with child friendly dishes and activity bags. Booking a table can be done over the phone, online via our website or by popping in. Thanks for reading and we look forward to welcoming you soon.
