We went to Molly's for an early Christmas dinner where my wife and I were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of our meals. My wife had the turkey with all the trimmings and suggested it was the moistest turkey she had had and enjoyed everything on the plate. I had the lamb which was also delicious. Our daughter had...

Nine people in our party ate here tonight. Most of us chose the chicken breast, but 2 people had fish dishes. We had a vegetarian lady in our party and it was disappointing to find only one dish for her on the main menu. She ended up having soup and a roll. The meals were well presented, and individual requests... More

Took some friends here visiting from abroad. They wanted to try some Scottish staples. They started with the Cullen Skink. It tasted ok, but there wasn't a piece of fish in sight. I had chorizo and lentil soup. It was very thick and gloopy. It's always been a bit up and down here. You can see that someone is trying... More

I've been to this Cafe on a number of occasions when visiting family in the area. The food is average and the interior is crowded and noisy, but what a location! Nothing thrills me more than being by the sea. To balance the less than flattering comments, it is a great place if you have children with you. A no... More

We only popped in for desert and coffee, but they were absolutely delicious, both of them. Wish we were staying here longer so we could come back for the full dinner.

A main course salad - crispy slivers of bacon and cubes of black pudding on a bed of mixed salad with a nice dressing. The service was very good - nice staff.

Went for lunch here and was very disappointed. We had Cullen skink which was horrible. It was basically lumpy potato salad as there was no liquid in it. There was no fish in it although it tasted fishy. My father in law order the deconstructed BLT but there was no description of it on the menu. We asked the waitress... More

Popped in on Sunday afternoon, had to stand for a good while (we were the only ones waiting for a seat) before having to go and ask one of the waiters (who didn't look very busy) whether we had to wait to be seated or just take a seat. Just take a seat we were told.... then left to sit... More
