Delicious fish and chips! Really Fresh and crisp. We had the last order of the day and sat outside to enjoy the evening views.

We stopped here for lunch after exploring Staffa and Iona. We had the most beautiful scampi and fish. Staff were friendly and the food was quick. We were lucky enough to visit in the sunshine and so were able to sit at the picnic tables...and enjoy the sea air.More

Delicious hand cut chips & servings of seafood. Between the 3 of us we had calamari, scampi & fish - all yum. Environmentally friendly packaging for take away. Friendly quick service. Outdoor eating area. All sauces provided. Brilliant location at Ferry Terminal. Fabulous:)

Welcoming and friendly service. Order and pay at counter and eat on picnic tables. Haddock and doubled fried chips was excellent. Creel chowder was exceptional!

On a recent trip to Iona I noticed the Creel seafood bar on the peer on the way over, unfortunately on the way out I had just eaten so didn’t get anything. I promised that I would try it on the way home- wow I...was not disappointed. On the way home I actually had the chowder for my breakfast (smoked fish for breakfast is the best way to start the day), great for my long trip home. Warming and filling, not to mention tasty I can’t recommend enough. I also bought a whole lobster and had surf and turf when I got home. It was fabulous. In all honesty I could have bought so much more, love that they have salads and sandwiches to take out on boat trips or back to your holiday home. The residents of Fionnphort are lucky to have them so close. Great service too, cannot recommend enough. I just wish you were closer!More

It must have been on off day. The fish and chips were greasy and soggy like the oil wasn't hot enough. The price for fish and chips was 12 pounds.More

I’m really sorry to hear you were disappointed and hope you will come back again. If you had said at the time our staff would have given you a fresh portion. Everything is cooked fresh to order and I am disappointed to hear the fish...More

Had their fish and chips while waiting for the bus back to Craignure after a day on Iona. They were brilliant! Lovely fish, special crispy batter and delicious chips.

This is a wonderful stop off for some freshly cooked local seafood.It is ideally located at pier/ferry terminal. It presents itself well and what appears a modern interior and spacious enclosed seating area. It is surprising how a small shack can deliver high quality but...it does It is the rule rather than exception that fish is always too battered but it was done to perfection as I requested the lighest of batter - a reflection that it is prepared on demand. Unfortunately although the squid was tender it was over battered but I am aware it is always difficult to achieve this unless you just coat only in flour The chips were delicious - not soggy reasonably crisp and home made with skins The staff were so friendly and the service very efficient It was a beautiful day (not too many here) so we were able to be in open air with a view over the bayMore
