We booked a table and really enjoyed our meal. The three of us shared mussels as a starter which were fresh and delicious. We all had haddock and chips with homemade tartar sauce. The food was lovely and the service excellent. Highly recommend.

On the recommendation of friends we travelled to Brae specially for a smoked fish supper. The place was heaving with families in the restaurant room and party bus customers queuing out the door for takeaway. Service nevertheless attentive and food came quickly.

Five star food, amazing view, friendly service. Eat outside in good weather. Desserts not up to much but the fish is the best.

Very friendly staff and delicious food served fast. The menu is large so if you don't like the traditional 'fish and chips' there's something for you. Great view
