Excellent food and friendly service. Family owned business who make a real effort to welcome you, including a taxi service within a 5 mile radius. Menu is modern with interesting dishes including Hake and Seabass. Funky haggis starter made in a Spring roll with an excellent pickle slaw was a first for me, and I mean in a very, very... More

If anyone is around this place , it is worth booking for a meal , the food is so nice and the no problem to have a few drinks as the owner picked us up from the hotel and dropped us off later on.

This restaurant on the north of Mull is a 30-40 minute drive from Tobermory. The lovely new building is warm and cosy. The restaurant prides itself on using locally reared meats and locally sourced other foods. The quality and taste of the pork from Mull reared pigs was excellent. The staff were friendly and welcoming and we had a very... More

We had a nice, classy if not spectacular meal at the Am Birlinn, in modern chic surroundings. You need to book a table in the season to be safe and you can do this on line. I would eat there again but it is definitely at the pricey end of meals on Mull...mind you I did have a lobster t... More

We visited Am Birlinn a couple of times, once taking advantage of their pick up and drop off service and had a good meals on both occasions. The fish and chips were of a high standard but there was plenty of other interesting choice on the menu for everyone. The restaurant itself is also in a great space and the... More
