Scottish

It’s simple really, our calling card is sustainable Scottish seafood.

Our name comes from the Gaelic word for fish. It’s a wee bit tricky to pronounce, but it’s no bother if guests don’t get it quite right. With delicious fresh produce served by our very own Head Chef, Sean Currie, you'll feel the energy in the way we go about things – our warm welcome, enthusiasm for what we do, and, of course, a splash of Glaswegian banter.

Serving sustainable Scottish seafood is at the heart of everything we do. That’s why £1 on every bill goes to The Firth Forth Lobster Hatchery, who hatch, rear and release lobsters to ensure stocks remain plentiful for future generations. Sea more on Instagram: @lobsterhatchery

We were hotel guests and asked to charge to our room but they called us at our room before coming up with a card machine. Also had breakfast at the hotel, poor continental and over charged us. The did take £2 off the bill after that. No salt and pepper on the table

By the time you are ready for them the food was cold. Lovely place and staff were friendly and attentive. All round it was excellent and I'll definitely be back.

Steaks and fish main courses came out approx ten minutes apart meaning the food was cold for some of the party. Drinks service was slow and some of the waiting team didn’t know basics about the food or the drinks. This is understandable when new, but it seems that few of the staff were experienced. Service was friendly but lacked finesse. Things just weren’t as we would have expected for this price. Sadly lacking in the timing and finesse that you’d expect for this price.

                                                                I booked a table of 6 for a working lunch and we had a wonderful meal. The setting is beautiful and the service was warm and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was truly delicious. The booking process was a little confusing. I booked via OpenTable and they left a voicemail saying I needed to phone to confirm the booking. When I phoned there was no record of the booking so I had to rebook. I received double confirmation emails. Anyway, in the event it didn't matter and we had a great time.

                                                                our waiter,Daniel, was excellent, very courteous, polite and helpful. The food at diner was on the whole very good but my daughters main had to go back and then getting a replacement took an extremely long time. Breakfast was a different experience. The service was poor, badly managed and food took a long time to arrive.Extra tea didn't arrive until we were leaving our table. Such a shame but there is obviously some work to be done to tackle service issues. Food is excellent.
