Visited this restaurant several times throughout our visit to Dunoon and found it to be the best walk in restaurant in the area. The food was fabulous, there is an Italian Restaurant on the floor below, serving excellent Italian cuisine, which you can order in the upstair lounge/bar area too. The value for money was good, as was the attentive... More

Food is excellent, great menu choice, service is good and surroundings quirky. Portions are big so worth bearing in mind if thinking about having a starter. Excellent value for money. Definitely worth a visit.

Choice is vast, food is wonderful, service is great and nice environments so 5 stars for that! Only gave it 3 as no WiFi access for customers, so if you need to check emails or browse the web over lunch with friends or business clients, it's not the place to go. There is a WiFi connection but not for customers!!

It had a different vibe, but the food was good and it had fun decor so that was all good. I had a mushroom/funghi pizza which was wonderful - nice thin crust. I could've been back in North America or in Scotland... it was good.

Food was nice and quick, service was terrible. Half the group got drinks no one else asked if the remainder would like one, no greeting or welcome. Had to ask for kids menu. Felt like we had to do everything ourselves and then ask.

There is a wide choice of food from macaroni and cheese to pizza to tex/mex so if there are several people who want different styles of food, you will all find something on this menu. I had the fajitas which were very good - almost too much food, which is a rare thing for me!

Food good and plenty of choice, staff friendly, just walk in and was lucky enough to get a table. I think if you and a group of friends were going to the restaurant you would be advised to book.

We were recommend to visit this place by one of the locals and it did not disappoint. The decor was slightly out dated and some of the staff were a little less welcoming than others but the main part of the visit, the food, was delicious. Most of the dishes on tables round about ours all looked fabulous. It is... More
