We were staying at the B and B associated with Scott's Bistro (also recommended) and ate here on our second night. The food was lovely, featuring seafood, and the service was friendly and efficient. Prices are very reasonable. Too many places in Scotland overcharge and underwhelm when it comes to shellfish. Scott's cooking is imaginative yet simple. Also a lovely cosy little room.

Visited 5 times now on different occasions with friends and family. The one thing you always get is great service. Great choice of menu and great value for the kids.

Offered an upgrade to premium room(at cost) after another guest cancelled. New room was nice, spacious and comfortable and at the front of the building overlooking the harbour. Unfortunately, the harbour started working at 0300hrs and continued through the morning until breakfast; lots of noise. Breakfast was fine and although we didn't try the cooked options through choice the porridge was spot on.
Kirsten refunded us some money for the small breakfast we had and the upgrade price because of the noise.

This review is for the bed and breakfast and not the bistro.
The review is quite right, we are situated beside the quay which is part of the charm.
This is a shellfish port and operates during the day. It is normally quiet at night.
The spanish collection comes in on Sun night and departs on Mon daytime.
Alas the refrigeration unit had an issue and a call out had to be done for repair hence the noise.
As the guest reviewed we explained this was a one off and made a deduction.
Check the vast majority of excellent reviews.

Right across the street from the commercial fishing wharf this small and intimate resturant offers a limited seafood menu though the items we tried were quite good. Reservations highly recommended.
