Arrived for our meal and shown to our table, however we should have looked around, seen the restaurant was almost empty and slipped quitely away! This being payday it probably should have been busy. Meal arrived and yet another example of a restaurant trying to be what it clearly isn't! Overly elaborate effort to impress (a fish is a fish... More

Visited recently with a friend for breakfast, I had the wee breakfast and my friend had salmon, scrambled eggs and gluten free toast as she is celiac. Was impressed, great service from waitress Angela too. Will be back.

We went to Molly's for an early Christmas dinner where my wife and I were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of our meals. My wife had the turkey with all the trimmings and suggested it was the moistest turkey she had had and enjoyed everything on the plate. I had the lamb which was also delicious. Our daughter had...

Nine people in our party ate here tonight. Most of us chose the chicken breast, but 2 people had fish dishes. We had a vegetarian lady in our party and it was disappointing to find only one dish for her on the main menu. She ended up having soup and a roll. The meals were well presented, and individual requests... More

Took some friends here visiting from abroad. They wanted to try some Scottish staples. They started with the Cullen Skink. It tasted ok, but there wasn't a piece of fish in sight. I had chorizo and lentil soup. It was very thick and gloopy. It's always been a bit up and down here. You can see that someone is trying... More

I've been to this Cafe on a number of occasions when visiting family in the area. The food is average and the interior is crowded and noisy, but what a location! Nothing thrills me more than being by the sea. To balance the less than flattering comments, it is a great place if you have children with you. A no... More

We only popped in for desert and coffee, but they were absolutely delicious, both of them. Wish we were staying here longer so we could come back for the full dinner.

A main course salad - crispy slivers of bacon and cubes of black pudding on a bed of mixed salad with a nice dressing. The service was very good - nice staff.
