Lonely Planet review
Purgatory at dinnertime can look uncannily like Stranraer at times, so thank the powers that be for this cheerful local.

Despite the name, dishes are more Italian than French, with great pastas alongside roasts, saltimbocca, and delicious appetisers featuring things like smoked salmon or greenlip mussels.
