Then we were invited to the table, she carried the drinks on a tray. Food was delicious. Could fault any of it. Made sure we tipped them on the way out. If you... More

8 of us ate in Gillies Bar and the food and service was excellent, everyone enjoyed their food but I must say the Haddock was superb.

A group of 10 of us decided to eat here recently. Our orders were taken in the adjacent upstairs lounge by a rather brusque waitress who called out 'Starters' then 'Mains' as she recorded our choices. We were soon showed to our table in the restaurant which was rather crowded that night. My starter was whitebait, a generous portion which... More

Good quality food and friendly, helpful staff. We turned up at about 8:45pm on the day of the Bute Highland Games, but they were able to seat us by the window upstairs with a lovely view across the water

Had a lovely meal from an extensive menu with something for everyone. Restaurant was busy (always a good sign) and we had to wait but it was worth it. As well as the good food there are great views out over the bay.

We stayed in Rothesay for a few days. It is a fairy typically old Victorian British seaside destination past its sell buy date unfortunately. We are always on the look out for good places to eat and this seemed a reasonable choice. We were particularly attracted by the sea food as we had been having some sensational stuff on the... More
