Reviewed 22 March 2014

Just noticed that this is the No1 rated restaurant in Peel but it should also be the No 1 in the Isle of Man!!

From the moment you walk in the place, with the product of Adele Filbey's hobby of collecting driftwood and making it into beautiful wall decorations, to the time that you walk out replete and happy, you are looked after and treated extraordinarily well......as they say as a forward to the menu, like friends rather than customers!!

Adele is front of house and is a wonderful person to meet and be looked after by....she and her attentive staff added so much to the wonderful food prepared by her husband!

Between us we managed bruchetta, mussels, scallops with plaice, sea bass, fillet steak to follow with beautiful vegetables on the side.....afraid to say we managed four bottles of wine (Pinot and Rioja) for a bill of £180 which we thought a snip for the quality and ambience.

The top floor was fully booked yet the service and timing excellent and we were neither waiting for service nor rushed.

All this in a beautifully decorated two storey building with views over the harbour....what more could one ask for...................I suppose comfortable seats? Yes, they had them too!!

if you have not been, you really have to go and support this excellent couple and, besides, one of the few decent pubs (The Creek) in the Isle of Man is bang next door!!!!!

I was very impressed by the food served here - good choice of menu and wines - a little on the expensive side but I don't mind that when the food is so good. Service is very good, not rushed with friendly staff. Situated on the seafront at Peel with panoramic views - I thoroughly recommend it.

Amazing little gem of a restaurant,food and service were excellent, the atmosphere was a buzz with everyone seeming to be having a great night ,very busy night but we were not felt left out nor were we constantly bothered by staff ,well run and you can feel the passion for food and life by the waiters and chefs who we watched from our table and chatted with when they had a second ,would recommend sitting down stairs just to see the guys flying in the kitchen ,best seats in the house ,would definitely recommend to all ,..

We called in for a late lunch. We were warmly welcomed in a stylishly decorated restaurant. Our meals were delicious, and the co-proprietor was happy to make small changes to their menu to suit us. Our main courses were very filling, so we only had room for ice cream, and were very impressed with the best range of ice cream flavours that we have so far found in any restaurant here. We will be back!

We had a lovely family Sunday roast, plenty of it and great value. Highly recommend the value meal for four people. We will definately be going back. It would be good I they added a choice of meats for that deal. Only downside was frozen roast potatoes. All the rest was home made and delicious!
