“Nice meal”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

We ate here, sitting at the bay window overlooking the harbour, as others have mentioned here. A really lovely situation to eat in the evening. The food was very nice, with great Cullen skink for starters for us both. I then had mussels, which were fine, but rather small, and my husband had grilled cod, which he requested rather than the battered and fried version on the menu. This seemed to confuse them slightly as they forgot the new potatoes he had requested, but the food was very tasty and nicely presented.

The atmosphere was rather subdued - no one else was in the restaurant when we arrived, and although we had booked they seemed surprised by our arrival and unable to provide a drink for ages, leaving us sitting in an area my husband described as being like a dentist's waiting room. Everything was painted plain white, with no attempt to highlight the rather attractive architectural features of this old building. Fortunately a family arrived to eat before we left and we chatted to them for a while, which livened up the ambience a bit. There was a livelier-looking bar area downstairs where they were serving food as well - perhaps we should have tried that. We asked if the hotel was busy and were told it was full, but they had no idea why no one was eating in their restaurant!

“Lovely bolthole on the seafront”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

We popped over for a day trip and we visited this restaurant for a coffee. We were served quickly and the drinks were brought straight over to our table. We then tried a liquor coffee, this was one of the best we have ever had.Service was excellent even when it got busy.Lovely views over the seafront too.
