“Disappointing, gone downhill”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

Really sad, Molly's used to be so warm and inviting. Seems like the atmosphere is gone. Food fine but no better than anywhere else. The once signature hot choc is now just over priced. Waiting staff nice but takes a long time to place order. Will be trying other cafés in stonehaven from now on. And like someone pointed out, the no buggies/prams sign is really off putting given the number of families walking the beach with little ones.

“Good value for money and good quality main course”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

Molly’s cafe is situated on the sea front next to the outdoor swimming pool. It doesn’t have a wide menu but the choice is good but I thought that the sweets were a bit ordinary. The staff were friendly and efficient but it closed at 8 pm which I thought was a bit early.

“Lovely place .... But”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

Place itself spotless, friendly helpful staff, unfortunately the food was a bit of a let down. My husband had soup to start which was ok followed by homemade burger which was dry the bacon was like a cinder he was frightened he would break his teeth! I had liver pate which was bland although the sweet onion relish was nice this was followed by poached chicken stuffed with cheese wrapped in ham which was tasteless but the mash & cream sauce was lovely we won't go again & won't be able to recommend it to our visitors. Was a bit pricey too.

“Great lunch venue”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

Been to Molly's many times on visits to Stonehaven and have never had a bad experience here. Staff are friendly and are always up for a chat. They are very understanding and accommodating to orders and will be happy add/remove different things from the dish which shows its made fresh.

Perfect venue for family lunches and they do a great coffee too!

“Great food, attentive staff,lovely atmosphere”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

I have visited Molly's quite a few times now and never been disappointed. Whether lunch or for an evening meal it is hard to beat. All the meals I have had have been perfectly cooked and the staff are very efficient and friendly. Prices are reasonable and they try to use the best of local produce.
