Ate recently with some locals at the Tanroagan on a business trip. Nice ambiance, noisy enough so you can have a conversation without feeling overheard - but not loud. Very friendly, attentive staff, good reasonably priced menu (3 course ala carte, with predinner drink and Wine with dinner came to about £45/head). The menu has some non-fish options for the...

Spent a short break on the island and had intended on dining at the Boatyard in Peel. However we discovered that Tanroagan was the flagship restaurant in Douglas. The decor and ambience of the restaurant really appealed. We had checked it out the previous night and it appeared that every table was occupied so we were very lucky in securing... More

IOM is blessed with the finest of seafood and this is one of the finest of seafood restaurants. At first I was frustrated at having to crane my neck to look at the blackboard menu, but then I realised the food is fresh everyday and a paper menu is useless. They would have got 5 stars if the wine list... More

This is a really cute restaurant with excellent service and good food. It's a cute place and though it was maybe a bit pricey I really did enjoy eating here. I loved especially that they bring different types of bread over for you to choose from! Very nice.

Our family of six had an amazing meal at this wonderful little restaurant. All the food was so fresh and delicious, especially the Manx lobster and the Manx Fish Pie. Highly recommend. Great service too.

We were a family group of 6. Restaurant was very accommodating with all our nuances. Most of us ordered off the daily specials board, which once they were gone were crossed off board so really were specials. Everything cooked to perfection. Would recommend without hesitation.

A decent clean well organised restaurant in the city centre with a reasonable choice of food and wine and a good range of seafood. But the prices are unreasonably high for what in the end were fairly routine ingredients and cooking.

Thank you for your review. We are delighted we were able to bring a bit of sunshine to your visit. The issue of pricing is something we are very conscious of, though as an island economy a lot of our costs are slightly higher (much more in some cases) than in UK even for the same goods and products owing...

After my jaundiced impression of Douglas thanks to the dismal and unhelpful Tourist Information Office, I was delighted to find such a friendly professional restaurant with such gorgeous local produce. The Queenies (the exquisite tiny IOM scallops) and the plaice not to mention the soupe de poisson were all excellent. The restaurant had a lovely modern relaxed atmosphere and for... More

Friendly and attentive staff. Wonderful decor - wooden tables and bright walls with an attractive tiled floor. I had a smoked haddock fishcake topped with an egg, with chunky chips as a side. My partner had the tacos, which looked beautiful. Excellent food. Recommended if you like fish.

One of my favourite fish restaurants. Varied menu on specials board. Wines on pricey side. Staff friendly and efficient.
