Lovely staff, tasty meal...always have a goood fillet steak here. Good portions, always leave stuffed. Always busy which speaks volumes. Decor could do with an upgrade, and maybe some different music to push it to 5 stars.

We both enjoyed our meal and the attentive service. I had the Lasagna with side veggies. Husband had the special seafood linguine. The seafood was fresh and abundant in the dish and the pasta was perfectly done. I only wish they had let us know...More

Expensive but care is taken in the food. Very high end and food is ok if you can deal with all the faffy stuff. King prawns full. Eyes and everything etc. Staff are great and very polite and welcoming. If your not into aromatic beers....More

Unimposing from the outside, but a warm welcome and delicious food await inside. Good variety on the menu and helpful staff make this a good place to go.

Excellent food, excellent friendly staff. The decor is a bit dark and drab and the outside doesn’t have kerb appeal but don’t let this put you off. Best to book on a weekend as it gets very busy.

Cannot fault anything about this restaurant apart from no disable access. A very fine eating experience with fresh fish on the menu at all times. ATTENTION TO EACH AND EVERY CUSTOMER is a priority. Hygiene levels are 100%

Lovely dinner accompanied by some excellent Italian wine. Good spot to eat in Castle Douglas but you need to book ahead as can be busy. Ideally enjoy a pre-dinner drink in the Sulwath brewery bar which is behind the restaurant as well.
