Apologies for the delay in the review as I visited the restaurant in May, however, my opinion has not changed in the slightest! We had a long lunch on a Friday afternoon and it was absolutely stunning, the food, the wine, the service all first class and an absolute credit to a wonderful chef. It doesn't get much better, thank you, it was a pleasure to visit!

Our party of six traveled from Aberdeen to experience some fantastic and professional service, with food that would "set the heather on fire" absolutely excellent in every way. Six tasting menus were selected, one the vegetarian, one the fish, the rest the tasting. No one was disappointed in their choice or each course being presented with one surpassingly the other throughout the evening.
A culinary snapshot in every dish using original ingredients, of great quality but treating them with respect, using techniques to enhance not obscure their innate qualities. The hallmark of tremendous craftsmanship.
Thank you to all involved and making the journey one to remember.

We were taken here on business which was booked for 10. Arrived on a Thursday night and straggly our party were spilt into two separate tables - not ideal, especially for a restaurant of this standard and service. The restaurant is understated and elegant in it's decor. The service is superb with great detail given by all in terms of describing the food and the accompanying wines. Not sure if our hosts had picked a fish tasting menu or it was set this way for a Thursday evening, and perhaps slightly risky depending on your clients. However, personally I thought every course and palate cleanser was sublime. The staff are highly trained, pleasantly interactive and highly knowledgeable. Would definitely return to try the a la carte menu or lunch. Difficult to comment on value as we didn't pay or see the bill !!
