Top local Hebridean fare, with fresh steak & tender lamb meat sourced from within 250 metres of the restaurant...served up by the friendly & obliging staff who finished Night off by ferrying revellers back to Tobermory in time for the bells. We highly recommend but Don't take my word for it, go check it out for yourself!

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.

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
