Bistro

Welcome to Sugar Boat - a relaxed & informal neighbourhood bistro in the heart of the town on Colquhoun Square, a stones throw from the sea front. We are open daily from 10am (11am on Sunday's) through until late. We serve everything from a simple breakfast menu with cracking bacon sarnies or avocado & egg on toast, a fixed price lunch menu at £13.50/£16.50 for 2 or 3 courses & an a la carte menu available at both lunch & dinner. Cakes and scones & savoury snacks are available all day. We have a Wine Shop for off sales from our extensive list of over 75 wines - everything from £8.50 per bottle upwards. Enjoy a tip top cocktail from our bar made with premium sprits & our home made purees, cordials and juices or enjoy a pint of a locally brewed beer or a bottle of Scottish craft ale from around the country. Choose to sit on the square (there are heaters and awnings for when the wind blows & the rain falls....and it does or in our rear courtyard (again partially covered & heated).

The place has exceeded our expectations, the food was absolutely lovely. We were a party of 3 and we have all enjoyed it till the last bite! The staff, from our waitress to the manager, were all lovely and helpful (and actually always there when we needed them)! We are definitely coming back, maybe with the train this time just to make sure we will be able to enjoy some of the great wines this little gem offers.

We visited for breakfast yesterday and my husband had the bodega roll which he thoroughly enjoyed, and I had the pancakes which were absolutely delicious, I’m so glad they have been added to the menu, please keep them there! Can’t wait to come back for more.

However, on our recent visit I felt that it was not up to the usual standard with steak and chips, burger and haggis on the menu - it felt somewhat of a festive left over menu and the haggis was inedible. Service was very good and drinks and ambience to the usual standard. I would also say that I also ate at the restaurant two weeks earlier and it was excellent.

Think this may have been due to covid re staff ratio.

Would have been nice to have had drinks topped up or some bread and oil or complimentary nibbles due to lengthy wait times. The table was pre booked, I would suggest not taking bookings when staff can’t cope with demand and if customers are having to wait lengthy periods. Otherwise the food is always amazing and I will be going back.

There isn’t one vegan option which is permanently on the menu and the veggie options are never that great either. I was told it’s because they don’t have freezers. I understand as someone who worked as a manager in a hotel and closely with the kitchen how this can make things difficult for storing. However, there should always be at least one vegan option available on the menu. I know other veggie/vegan people who feel the same about the menu. I won’t be returning again due the disappointment with food
