Situated at the Ardrossan Marina (a tastefully converted Pump/Power House) & with plenty of available parking, we were warmly welcomed & quickly shown to a table in the upstairs part of this well established Italian restaurant. This afforded us good views of the many, anchored boats and across to the Isle of Arran. We chose from the lunch menu, but... More

My husband and I visited for a meal on Tuesday evening, having purchased an Itison voucher for £10 which allowed us a main course each. However, my husband chose to have a starter, I had a red wine and he had a shandy. The food was fine but we paid an additional £15 for the 'extras'. This was entirely due... More

My wife visited Cecchinis in Ardrossan many years ago for a works night out and she did not particularly enjoy it, so it put us off going for many years. Recently we have got into Itison.com to get us to try more new places that we would not regularly visit, and a we noticed a pizza and pasta meal for... More

Had steak and can honestly say that this is the best steak I have had in a long time. Service was really good and atmosphere is very calming.

Stopped here for breakfast before a day out just the right amount on your plate, could use side plates for the toast rather than having it on top of the meal place is busy so a bit of a wait for service and meal otherwise very nice

Average is the best I can come up with. Starters came and Garlic bread had a chunk of carbon from the toaster, and I mean a 50p size of black carbon. The Caprese came without olive oil and pesto. It was a supermarket salad tomato sliced with mozzarella with no dressing, at £6.25 this is poor. The spaghetti and meatballs... More
