And, of course, the Pittenweem landed langoustines and lobster for which they are famous.

Fans of cooking programmes may also recognise Amy from the BBC TV series ‘Great British Menu’ where she represented Scotland in 2020 and 2021. Recently the pair were invited to cook for royalty when the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited Fife.

The Harbour Café is open Wednesday – Sunday, from 12pm – 3pm and 6pm-8pm.
