The food at Tanroagan is absolutely fantastic and the choice that you have on offer brilliant. Last time, I had the mixed seafood platter and a Hake main which was really tasty. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the Isle of Man with...More

We will be back. The fish board and the crab on toasted ciabatta were both good. Mains we had hake in soy and sea bass battered and fried. Both with chips. All cooked to perfection.

Ate here on a trip to the isle of man. The food was delicious. I was with friends and we all had fish which is their speciality. It's quite a small restaurant so would recommend booking in advance

Visited with a party of five on a friday night. I can only describe it as "OK, not bad enough to complain but nothing to rave about". The goats cheese starter was odd, and several pounds over priced. Surf and Turf was disappointing - small,...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
