Much needed addition to decent eating places in Dunoon. Superb location on beach. Great for storm watching. Outside is still work in progress but huge improvement on previous building. Meals and snacks very good. Needs to watch that heating is on these cold nights.

This venue has been recently renovated and what a turnaround. Although the decor is not what I would choose, it's smart and fresh and a huge improvement. Service sometimes a bit slow, but good menu with plenty of choice. Excellent for brunch or a more...More
