    Service was spot on, food was delicious. My only criticism was my pasta dish wasn't as described, tagliatelle isn't really a substitute for parpadelle.

    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.

    A great cosy pub feel whilst also being young, modern and trendy. We had the roast which was delicious, great portion size and value for money. The team that looked after us we're friendly and attentive. We were made to feel really welcome and had a really lovely time. Will definitely be returning!

    The food was great but we could barely hear each other because of neighbouring boisterous groups - obviously not the lovely staff's fault. We'll definitely return but possibly not on a Saturday night.

    My only criticism about the food was that the haggis balls didn’t really have the taste/ texture/ spice I would have expected for haggis. Server went to remove the plates of others sitting at table while i was still eating. Nothing major really. Didn’t feel there was an ambience as it was full and very noisy with everyone talking but that’s not really something they can change. Some people talk louder than others.
