The service here is second to none, the restaurant itself is rather intimate and the staff were genuinely taking an interest

The most amazing dinner I have had in a long time. The fish pie was outstanding. Can't recommend it higher.

Nothing wrong with this at all - a good selection of seafood well cooked, perhaps a litle expensive but not bad value. The only gripe was that the service was a bit slow which was odd given that it was midweek in November with ony...More

Tried most of the restaurants on the harbour and all have been very good but Tanroagan just shaded it for the best meal and service. Nice wine and beer with a good choice of specials. Good sized portions and we didn't feel rushed. Fish stew...More

One of the best restaurants in Douglas thanks to its atmosphere, lovely design and delicious food. There's a good variety of fish on the menu, and although it's not the biggest selection of dishes/wines, all is cooked to perfection and served piping hot. The staff...More

Not that I'm aware of although they like you to be smartly dressed at weekends.
Sir - having chosen to besmirch my character on this website and lied about our correspondence (my letter to you was dated and sent 13 Sep - accept I got the date wrong in my posting) - so please provide details of your advocate to allow my solicitor to pursue your perverse statements through the courts. I am neither 'rude' nor 'condescending' and what you describe as a 'tirade' was a fair report of the food that your team/suppliers provided - I still shudder at the memory of at least 3 instances of approx 2.5 inch long by 1/2 inch wide pieces of crab shell in the 'coriander' soup - life-threatening to be sure. Your mother's misaddressed e-mail was OK by me and whilst some of the points were unusual (e.g. to engage with your suppliers directly) it offered a £50 voucher which if we determined we'd ever revisit the IoM and your restaurant we would have taken up (neither of these appeals to us). Judging from your responses to other 'negative' reviews on this site you are a rude and uncaring provender that deserves no happy clients. Your suggestion that we should have returned to discuss our 'niggles' was absurd - we were on holiday and not minded to return/waste time on Tanroagan engagement. John
