Five of us turned up with no booking and we're shown to a nice window table. Drinks order taken within a few minutes no problem. 5 minutes later our starter and main courses were taken and again the food turned up in a reasonable time. A bit of attention to the drinks situation would have been nice as I had... More

Always have a great meal in here. Very family friendly would definitely recommend. Great for groups and in the evenings nice to pop in for a cheeky wine.

Come here regularly when in Elgin - love the pizza and bakes, some of the best around. Very good quality, well priced and the service is very friendly and welcoming even though they are so busy! Will keep coming back again and again.

We visited the restaurant on the day the statues were unveiled on the High Street. The restaurant was very busy but we managed to get a table. The lunch menu was very reasonably priced, I had lasagne and the portion was generous and tasty. Despite the restaurant being very busy, the staff were attentive and friendly, the tables clean and...

We popped in while Xmas shopping in town on the off chance. We were not disappointed, with service with a real smile, good vegetarian/vegan choice and full of flavour. We thought as it was full with a queue out of the door we would wait, but no prompt service and excellent flavours. Definitely recommended

Apologies Azza A that you did not enjoy your choice of meal with us on Saturday evening. After speaking to the Duty Manager I understand that there was initial uncertainty whether the issue was down to personal taste or a mistake on our part as in making the complaint you stated several times that you were half Italian and the...

Great food, great menu, fantastic staff. We go back time and time again because it's a lovely restaurant that clearly cares about its reputation. The staff are polite and attentive and the food is great.

Very nice waitress served us, but since I wanted a salad, she was baffled, but they put together something for me: a fairly tasteless salad. We did not go back.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review regarding your visit to us last year. We do offer a selection of salads available on our main menu at all times from simple mixed salads, roasted vegetables, duck and also a chicken salad all with a variety of dressings, so I'm disappointed to read that there wasn't anything that...

Visited scribbles on Tuesday afternoon for a spot of lunch with my partner and our 2 year old son. This was our first visit and we were not left disappointed. My partner opted for the pasta of the day which was a chicken, leek and four cheese sauce with garlic bread. The chicken was delicious and moist and the pasta... More
