We had another delicious meal here. Alana had scallops and a half lobster which she loved. The wine was lovely too so we had two bottles. Wish I had known it was £ 22.50 a bottle though, may have settled for just one. Still, did not detract from a fine time

We ordered quite a few items, but the ones that stood out were the baked oyster dish and the soups which were very delicious. Everything was just average. The restaurant's atmosphere is nice and not stuffy as one would expect from a highly recommended restaurant. Make sure to call in advance to make reservations and go early because most restaurants in Scotland require reservations and book up fast.

The choice in the menu is limited. Delicious food, fast serving attendants. Guests are sitting on two floors. Small little restaurant in Thistle Street. Main meal is 15 to 25 pounds.

We had a wonderful meal at this restaurant. The food took advantage of Scotland's readily available fish; everything was both fresh and delicious. It is definitely worth an evening visit
