We recently had a weekend in portpatrick and tried to book a table for both evenings and unfortunately they couldn't accommodate us,this shows how popular it is. 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

This is a very understated place at end of seafront overlooking little harbour . The chefs here know how to handle seafood extremely well abd with little fuss and there is also a surprisingly extensive offering of all types / styles of other options non - seafood - reallly good and very good value - don't pass up a chance...

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

We dropped in for dinner early, without a booking, and were cheerily accommodated. We both opted for the chef's special dish: seared Hake fillet with Portpatrick Crab on spinach & crispy Scampi with Café de Paris sauce. What can I say, the food was superbly prepared, being cooked to perfection. The combination of ingredients was delectable and the sauce a... More

We were only here for a light lunch, sandwiches a n d a bowl of chips to share, we were all happy with our choices and had we been hungrier would have been tempted by the lovely food being delivered around us. This is not a place I visit often but would have no hesitation in going again if in... More

Two of us had their midweek lunch for only £11.95 for two courses - starter and mains. Services was excellent and they asked if we were happy on several occasions. Lovely home made bread and very fresh fish cooked superbly. The starter of seafood mist was outstanding, followed by fresh haddock with an abundance of vegetables, too much really. Nice... More
