This showcases everything best about local family owned and run restaurants. The experienced Italian chef has established this lovely place and developed a great reputation which on our experience is very well deserved. It is rare to have a three course meal where all three courses excel. One usually lets the overall experience down. We loved our meal. We both had crepes with ham in a tasty sauce as starter followed by Saltibocca where the pork was beautifully tender and in another good sauce. For dessert we had a coconut panacotta which my wife really enjoyed and I had possibly the best chocolate dessert ever (and I have had a few). If this was in the south of England it would be packed out every night. Please go along and support this great attempt to bring something different to Dumfries and Galloway.

Good food in charming setting. The Meringue with fruit and cream was delicious. The staff went out of their way to accommodate our kids.

We were staying with Family in Garlieston and decided to have a meal out. None of us had been before. We were pleasantly surprised this restaurant had lovely decor the bar was brilliant made up with driftwood. Great menu lots of choice. The chef came out to greet us and was very funny. All the staff were pleasant and most helpful. Two of us had Mountain mushrooms to start and two had tomato and wild garlic soup delicious. Main course was amazing too chicken in balsamic with fresh salad and roast potatoes, Tagliatelle for two of our guests and risotto for the other. Everything was brilliant. Superb wine too. We all had a lovely evening and will come back.

Early evening visit to this highly recommended restaurant....it didn’t disappoint! Lovely staff, attentive but not overly so. Parmigiana to start was fantastic, vegetarian tagliatelle puttanesca for main was rich & flavoursome. Hubby assured me the pork was excellent. To finish, how could I resist affogato with disarronno? Delicious! Grazi Pheasant, we shall return !

It’s amazing there is an Italian restaurant this good in the whole of Galloway -to find it in tiny beautiful Sorbie is a repeated revelation
A genuine family business with a family feel. Local ingredients from the Newton Stewart gin to the locally sourced meat. If you’re in Wigtownshire do not miss The Pheasant.
