Menus

Retaining much of the original ethos of using Scottish, seasonal ingredients to create dishes with a Mediterranean twist, our food is cooked to order and guarantees a treat for your taste-buds – whether it be a classic or contemporary dish.

This does mean that at really busy times, there may be a short wait for your food, however our staff are on hand to help you make the most of it, with perhaps some bread and olives or Tzatziki whilst enjoying your selection from our carefully selected wine and drinks menus.

We can cater for most dietary requirements offering a wide range of gluten free dishes. Feel free to give us a call to discuss or advise your server on arrival and we will be more than happy to advise you.
