There were high hopes for "Rock & Oyster" when it opened in August in 2013.
At the time, the restaurant, based in the centre of Aberdeen, was confident it could bring something fresh to the city.
But, although it subsequently received plenty of praise and been nominated for several awards, life is tough for even the most enterprising eateries these days.
And a short announcement on "Rock and Oyster's" Facebook page has confirmed the restaurant has closed down with immediate effect.
It's disappointing news for those who had enjoyed the rich array of fish and seafood dishes which were on the menu.
Their notice stated: "Rock and Oyster Seafood Restaurant has changed hands and is closing on Saturday 27th June 2015.
"Thank you immensely for your support over the past two years, we do hope you have enjoyed your experience here.
"And we wish the new owners "Bigos", Aberdeen's first dedicated Polish restaurant, all the very best for the future."
There was no response from the owners when STV tried to contact them on Monday.
But Andrew Manson, the head chef at "Rock and Oyster" had said he was baffled by the lack of seafood restaurants in the city when he spoke to STV's Victoria Pease last November.
It seemed to be based in a prime location in Union Terrace and had even gained plaudits from the much-lauded Michelin guide.
But the positive reviews have not ensured its survival.
