Part of our NC500 experience, and was definitely a highlight. We were made most welcome from the moment we entered, and this continued throughout the entire evening. The food was superb - in fact, this was the only restaurant on our trip where the whole party had to try all the courses.All beautifully constructed and well proportioned dishes. Long may Jim and Mary continue to share their specialness.

What an amazing restaurant. From the warm welcome to the beautifully restored building, (a former ice house and now a truly amazing dining experience) amalgamated with an amazing service with deliciously and perfectly prepared cooked and presented food. A bit on the pricey side if you are just looking for simple fish meals or out with a young family (most kids wouldn’t eat this as it is very rich food), but for that extra something special it is perfectly and reasonably priced as this food is above special, worthy I would say of a Michelin star or two. Will definitely return someday if we are in that area.

All guests joined in singing happy birthday. A truly enjoyable visit. We will definitely be returning. Thank you to all at Captain's Galley.

Went for my wife's birthday and we were the only couple there so was quite special. Salmon risotto very good and also monkfish. plenty of food at all courses which I had been advised by others I may be disappointed with portion size. There was no disappointment on this aspect. Ordered some after dinner malts and was surprised to receive additional complementary drams before our taxi. Only slight negative was being February and a cold night, the restaurant could have been warmer.

Absolutely fantastic food and service, my colleagues and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal and dining experience. This was my first time visiting Captain's Galley following Iain's recommendation, it certainly won't be the last. Made to feel comfortable and welcoming as soon as we arrived, Mary was a splendid host and Jim's food was sumptuous. Look forward to visiting again in the future. Thanks again, James.

What a wonderful unique experience. Second time here, first with friends, now with my best friend and wife for Valentines. A very nice intimate setting and great venue. Excellent choices for food, and have yet to have anything that was outstanding. Loved it.

My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our evening - the food was absolutely lovely. The welcome and service we received was excellent. For me the only thing was that it was quite chilly in the Dining Room even though we did sit in the corner by two heaters. Mary and Jim were great hosts and catered so well for my friend with her Gluten free diet etc.
