I have been here 3 times in just one week. My husband and I love this place, we've been for many occasions previously. The menu is slightly smaller, but food is still outstanding. Cocktail menu is limited, naturally but if you have a favourite from old one they will make it (my husband was delighted with his Wee Beastie) Overall experience is excellent every time, staff are well educated about safety measures and still extremely helpful and pleasant. I will of course be back.

Second time here and the food wasn’t as good as the first. We went for lunch and my food was not that warm. They did replace the chips. I was that hungry I just ate the burger. Staff were very good and it was a nice relaxing atmosphere. It was just a shame about the food.

Lunch menu portions much smaller than dinner menu ..reflected in price
Not usual in lots of other establishments where full portions served at lunch
Also no mention that lunch is a smaller plate or my husband and son would’ve eaten from the main menu
Otherwise an enjoyable lunch

I thought the food was ok..the steak and ale pie was tasty but the haggis croquettes did not even taste like haggis and the whisky sauce had no taste at all.
The cranachan was ok but I've tasted better.
And £10 for a glass of red wine is very steep.
Wont be rushing back

It was OK... but could have been better. The thick cut chips were frozen thick cut, which were OK, but could have been real. The fish pie was OK... but I would have said the fish was from a freezer bag.
The cranchan was just nasty.

Superb venue, superb staff, warm, friendly and closely adhering to current COVID-19 guidance.
The food was excellent, portion sizes were immense, the significant others fish & chips was fabulous, “ her words”. My homemade steak pie was homemade, thanks.
We will be back, especially when the music returns to our “ hospitality “ lives.

Fantastic meal. Went along to Mharsanta with friends to celebrate parents golden wedding anniversary. The service was great and the food amazing. Pity that can’t play music and due to covid it was quiet - but service and food more than made up for it. Highly recommend

I love this restaurant, I've visited numerous times. The food is always fantastic. I marked it down in this instance because I was disappointed that the kids meals didn't come with vegetables and I had to pay for a side plate of seasonal veg - just doesn't seem right!! Apart from that the service was great, and the food was fantastic. We had a lovely family evening.

I went with 2 friends and took advantage of the extended 50% off deal. The food was excellent, starters were a good size and very tasty. The fish and chips main course was brilliant, freshly cooked and the best chips I've had in ages. The only complaint I had was that, whilst the fish and chips were a very generous portion, one of my friends ordered the Balmoral Chicken which came as a tiny portion - the chicken breast was minuscule and the accompanying mashed potatoes amounted to a couple of mouthfuls. It did give us a bit of a laugh and the evening was saved by ordering an extra portion of chips!
Would definitely recommend - just be careful what you order if you're hungry!

Had a lovely meal (as usual). Unfortunately the fire alarm sounded and restaurant was emptied. We did have our starters and main courses but were unable to enjoy, or finish our chosen drinks, have dessert or coffee. 😢
I have awarded four stars which was based on the food we had enjoyed.
I have to say that the batter on the fish was beautiful - so light and crispy.
Will certainly be back at another time.
Staff were friendly and ambiance good. The divisions between tables were imaginative and I noticed also the height between the booths had been raised. Out cutlery cam in paper sleeves and I noticed that as tables were cleared the table plus the chairs were wiped down thoroughly. Contact details were taken.

Once again a beautiful meal but once again we never received our onion rings without a reminder to our waitress, we would have preferred to have them to eat with our meal and not when our meal was just about finished. Same thing happened last time though so Im wondering if it is how they are served generally. Next time we will ask in advance to have them with our meal.

I have put 4 out of 5 for noise level and ambiance but its not really the restaurants fault so may be a bit off - it would have been nice to have some quiet background music but there wasnt so we could kinda here the whole conversation from the next table

But that is government ruling and so hopefully will be fixed by next time we go - which we will definitely be doing...

Mharsanta
Responded on 7 September 2020

Hi Laura, Thank you for giving us a 5 star review. Sadly at this time, no music is allowed which does make it difficult to create the warm Scottish ambience we strive to deliver. We do hope this decision is changed in the coming weeks to allow for a little background music and look forward to welcoming you back again soon.
