Specials are a must - Japanese mackerel and lobster thermidor to follow. Booking is essential and the staff are very helpful.

I had seen the review on trip advisor and so Tanroagan was on my list, and we were not dissapointed. We were greeted warmly and this small establishment has welcoming decor without being to formal. We opted for the monkfish and tempura prawns with mango...More

Hello Thank you for your kind review. Even the way you describe the dish here makes me hungry. Glad you enjoyed the mini pudding. We found many people like to finish with something sweet after a meal but sometimes a full pudding is just impossible...More

Delightful restaurant. Lots of choice featuring the freshest seafood on an interesting menu with several extra 'dishes of the day'. Service was friendly and efficient.

Not that I'm aware of although they like you to be smartly dressed at weekends.
Sir - having chosen to besmirch my character on this website and lied about our correspondence (my letter to you was dated and sent 13 Sep - accept I got the date wrong in my posting) - so please provide details of your advocate to allow my solicitor to pursue your perverse statements through the courts. I am neither 'rude' nor 'condescending' and what you describe as a 'tirade' was a fair report of the food that your team/suppliers provided - I still shudder at the memory of at least 3 instances of approx 2.5 inch long by 1/2 inch wide pieces of crab shell in the 'coriander' soup - life-threatening to be sure. Your mother's misaddressed e-mail was OK by me and whilst some of the points were unusual (e.g. to engage with your suppliers directly) it offered a £50 voucher which if we determined we'd ever revisit the IoM and your restaurant we would have taken up (neither of these appeals to us). Judging from your responses to other 'negative' reviews on this site you are a rude and uncaring provender that deserves no happy clients. Your suggestion that we should have returned to discuss our 'niggles' was absurd - we were on holiday and not minded to return/waste time on Tanroagan engagement. John
