Our hotel recommended Scott's as the best restaurant in Troon and we were glad to be able to get a table early as we had been told nothing was available. Great view of the Marina and attentive staff. That's the good news or part of it. My wife was happy with her tomato soup and fish and chips which I tried and agreed with her. I chose King Scallops and Langoustines. I have never seen scallops as small as the three ones which arrived looking lonely and tiny among a bed of salad and our waiter tried to pretend that these were normal Scottish scallops. Having been brought up in Ayrshire, I know that is rubbish. At 9 pounds for this dish, around 100 pounds a pound rather outrageous.
The langoustines were incredibly disappointing. We live in Paris part of the year and the best langoustines in Paris all come from the West coast of Scotland. I can only assume that all that is left for local restaurants are the runts of the langoustine litters. At 19 pounds for 6 langoustines which were small and frankly overcooked another grossly overpriced dish.
Very sad as it should be possible to have wonderful seafood in Troon. Oban, where I have had first class shellfish in the past is not that far away so I hope that an effort is made to improve size and quality of your offering.

A really brilliant venue, fantastic customer service friendly and attentive. Food is great, fresh and tasty. The restaurant has brilliant big windows looking out onto the harbour, really unique and beautiful. Definitely recommended a visit.

Food and service good. Booked online a week in advance so a wee bit disappointed, though, to be put at a table which was sandwiched between the back of the till and the fire exit. If we go back I will make sure to phone in advance and ask for a table which actually looks out on the marina.

This was a visit for my wife's birthday with all the family. We've been before and never been disappointed. We were in the conservatory this time and with such a lovely night it added to the whole experience. Good food, great service and less than I expected to pay, I cannot find a reason to complain.
