After much debate we decided this was where we were going to have our catch up dinner. The fabulous weather must have brought people out for a midweek it was remarkably busy. Setting was fantastic overlooking the sea. The staff gave us a window table even though we hadn’t booked which was lovely. Although busy the staff were attentive and had time to engage in conversation. Main course was lovely pasta with smokies and crayfish very tasty and generous portion. Garlic bread on the side wasn’t necessary but delicious. Highlight of the meal was the raspberry bread and butter pudding which I must admit didn’t look fantastic but oh my goodness tasted fantastic so light and the raspberry flavour was amazing. Finished the meal off with a very good coffee. No comment on my friend’s meal as although the menu was extensive we both chose exactly the same. Will definitely be back if only for the pudding any time I’m passing

Ate here a couple of times, best restaurant we visited in Arbroath. Service is friendly and efficient. The seafood is outstanding. A great place to try a "smokie". Great view of the harbor.

Great place for coffee snack or meal.
We visit often.
Food is fresh, staff are great and place has a fantastic outlook.
Only downside is that even if you don't sit near the doors, it can get drafty if outside is being used.
Try the fish and chips or the steak ciabatta. .you won't be disappointed.

Do NOT order the haddock and chips. For a Seafood restaurant in Arbroath where fresh fish should be a given, this haddock was greasy and tasteless.
