It stands proudly amid the coastal splendour of Stonehaven.
And it's a stunning example of Art Deco architecture, which looks like something you might see in an episode of Poirot.
The Carron Restaurant dates back to the 1930s, but it closed its doors last year after its owners retired.
However, the classic building will open for business again on July 3 after being bought by Lee Soutar and Charlotte Wilson, who run Caramelised Catering in Montrose.
And Lee spoke to STV about his future plans for this popular eaterie.
He told us: "We were looking for a restaurant in the north east and as soon as we saw The Carron, we realised that it was special.
"It's an institution, it has an elegance and it stands out from the crowd, and the interior and the exterior are both in fine condition.
"We're starting up pretty quickly, but one of the reasons for that is the fact there's no need to make a lot of changes to this building.
"In fact, it would be a shame to alter it and I think most people in Stonehaven would agree with that."
He added that anticipation was building in the local community for the restaurant's reopening: "It is only a few weeks until we open again. And the reaction we have received has been phenomenal."
Lee and Charlotte have no intentions of running before they can walk.
But it's clear their business experience has provided them with a clear plan for the future.
Lee explained "We're aiming to offer delicious British food with as much local produce as we can source.
"We'll change the lunch menu every one or two weeks to keep things fresh and offer customers plenty of choice.
"And we'll provide a new dinner menu every month, which you will see once we have opened our doors on July 3. We're really looking forward to it."
