The obvious choice for a family celebration of a big birthday, our favourite restaurant. Food is of the highest quality, especially the fish and seafood. Just landed is as fresh as you can get. Staff are all well trained and very friendly. Special requests, or variations to the menu are not a problem. Children are made very welcome. Cannot recommend... More

Stumbled into Portpatrick without a plan. Only two options available for a Tuesday lunch. Pleasant welcome. And instantly seated. Only one other couple dining today when we arrived. Shown a Lunchtime menu but on enquiring the A la Carte was also available. Good selection of dishes with additional Soup of Day, Curried Cauliflower. In for a penny I thought. Delicious.... More

We did manage to get in late afternoon and the scallops starter wrapped in bacon was unbelievable. My main was rack of lamb that was to die for . The staff were also... More

Had a fabulous meal here last week. Greeted by a lovely member of staff and seated. We were having the Pre-xmas menu so glass of bubbles on arrival with an array of Canapes. Extensive menu to choose from, we both chose the same, quite strange for us! The Cullen Skink to start was fab and the Beef onthe Reef, Fillet... More

Started off bad, we had to go and ask for menus after sitting for over half an our. Things improved when the food started to arrive, all the food was excellent until a last langoustine was shelled, it was rank and smelled so bad it was taken to the service staff. That was that, no apology, nothing, doubt if we... More

The menu is over-ambitious so choosing can take time. Both visits for lunch were excellent - good food and expert service. Excellent value too.

After all the rave reviews we had high hopes ..... we found the service offering inflexible - not allowed to swap chips for vegetables so ordered the side of vegetables as an extra (left the mandatory Chips) It was frankly weird to be served a mass of braised red cabbage with fish in a cream sauce... (looked awful and the... More
