The Tolbooth is a seafood restaurant on Stonehaven harbour. Our first visit was about 20 years ago – we’ve been back 2 or 3 times since then but not since 2009 (2009 review).
The setting is wonderful and we had a great table by the window. You can get an idea of the view from the picture of our amuse bouche (Brandade de Morue).
My main course was roasted sea bream with ratatouille. The fish was very nicely cooked but is inherently rather bony. By the time I had extracted the bones, it was a bit cold. Others made a better choice I think – they had hake with crab and lemon risotto.
Excellent meal. With a bottle of Muscadet sur lie, we were about £40 each – fish is expensive. Service was friendly and swift. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.
