All I can say is WOW. The food is absolutely delicious and the staff are lovely and welcoming. The chef Carlo is obviously a perfectionist, perfecting and blending delicious flavours together. A little piece of heaven. Heather the owner was an absolute delight and a fantastic host. Thank you, I loved every morsel.

Great food and atmosphere - highly recommended. This is an exceptional restaurant in an otherwise limited dining choice in Castle Douglas.

We pitched up as a group of 5 unannounced just after opening time. We were warmly welcomed and with some table re arrangement were accommodated. Service was wonderful from start to finish; attentive but not over bearing. We avoided a starter as sweets were required. However we were treated to an assortment of fresh bread and accompanying flavoured butters and spreads.
Main courses included chicken, pasta and seafood (Fritto Misto) based dishes. All were excellent and very tasty. The freshly prepared, locally sourced produce came through in the dishes.
Sweets followed the same flavoursome theme, particularly the lemon posset and the gin and tonic jelly which was a favourite amongst us all.
All is all and great dining experience for Castle Douglas and long may it remain.
