    Delicious food - we chose to have 'tapas' and ordered a few of the starters to share. Everything was delicious. Perfect nibbly food with a lovely bottle of rose - very relaxed.

    Good food albeit a restricted menu on a Sunday, or so we were advised by our server. Service was good and our server gave a great recommendation for dessert which I appreciated.

    A nice atmosphere and superb service. The squid starter was very disappointing, like some sort of fritter, and very over priced, the rest of the food and drinks were okay. The Toilets were the only real shocker, they were very dirty, cold and stinking. I don’t think they have changed in at least 20 years? Thank you.

    I must admit I was a bit disappointed having had a meal here before it didn’t wow me as much. The peas with fish and chips cold and presentation lacked. The £14 cheeseboard was very disappointing with just a few crackers thrown on a plate and chutney dumped and 3 cheeses which weren’t of good quality. It lacked presentation and I can do far better myself! The service was good and it’s a nice place but this time round did leave a but disappointing with the food.

    Everything was great, the food, the service and the atmosphere. The only thing that spoiled it was the extremely noisy large group of people who seemed to forget there were other people in the restaurant. The Drouthy staff did try to quieten them down and gave us a round of free drinks as an apology. I’d definitely go there again and understand it was a large Christmas booking but they were just too noisy.

    Another amazing afternoon of food, drinks, service. Got a bit noise by the time we were leaving, as busy. But great service and atmosphere, didn't feel pressured to give up table - were there 4 and half hours. Cocktails great, choices great food excellent and all staff attentive and great. Didn't take a pic sorry but the others did.

    Reception, food and service was excellent right up till time to pay. Bill delivered but lengthy wait then going up to bar to pay, staff seemed disinterested and unhelpful, vaguely waving us to the opposite end of the restaurant, where we had to wait again and staff less than helpful. This was both disappointing and annoying and, cost the staff a healthy tip.

    Starters of haggis bon bons were followed by monkfish for me and halibut for my partner. Everything was cooked to perfection, nicely presented and complemented by a very acceptable wine. Friendly and knowledgeable service ensured a pleasant evening in a lovely setting.

    The noise rating was from a big group at that time which can't be helped and was still fine. If it was full of couples or small parties I'd imagine it would be significantly quieter! The food was incredible and as was the Palma Violet tasting cocktail. Staff are very attentive and excellent service all round. We loved it and will come again.

    We arrived at the bar on time and was welcomed with friendly and professional staff, we were escorted to our table promptly and looked after the entire night with attentive but non-obstructive service. An amazing night and one of if not the best venue in elgin for a meal and drinks. Our food was amazing and very well portioned for the price. We shared a baked chocolate tart for dessert and it was so rich and indulgent we couldn’t finish it but we tried our best. Amazing. Cocktails by Bob were mixed to perfection and tasted sublime.
