I've been going here for years and you can never bore of the charm of an old world fishing village cafe. The food is really delicious and from an extensive menu which delights. The decor suits the atmosphere perfectly and you could imagine yourself there thirty years ago ; I was (!) and it's still a great place to stop... More

Popped in tonight as our hotel restaurant was very busy and glad we did. Great food and friendly efficient staff. My wife had some seafood dish that she loved and I had a brilliant burrito. Good sized portions, good food in a nice cafe - highly recommended

This cafe has a friendly atmosphere. Food was freshly made and the portions were large. Food was delicious. Small place but cosy and didn't give out a feeling of being squashed together. Highly recommended.

Popped in for a fish & chip lunch. A small and quite popular place and we could understand why. Cooked to perfection and super tasty. We were very impressed. Only slight complaint was that for me the coffee was a bit too strong and no wifi. There was mobile reception though. Would most definitely recommend!

We have been here on a few occasions and have never been disappointed with the service nor the quality of the food. From fish pie or mince and tatties to pizza or veggie meals there is great choice and all cooked fresh.

We had haddock and chips with salad sitting at the window looking out onto the harbour. The fish was fresh and well cooked and everything tasted good. The waitress was really friendly and efficient despite the cafe being really busy. The menu is quite comprehensive and everything is cooked to order. Definitely worth another visit.

Arrived at 11.30 and looked longingly at the breakfast being finished by the next table. We ordered a panini and club sandwich and were not disappointed. Well presented with lots of extras and lovely salad which was not overdressed. Good coffee too!
