Why eat any where else in Tobermory when this wonderful cordon bleu restaurant is so consistently wonderful. The best!

Our evening started with drinks in the lounge whilst we reviewed the menu. Our host set the tone for the rest of the evening with his warm and engaging conversation and wit. The food here is excellent as is the well matched wine list.

The restaurant was small and we ate as non residents. David was helpful and friendly full of local information and an entertaining host. Generous portions cooked to order and very well prepared and presented.

David runs a wonderful little restaurant - we did not see the hotel part but would be keen to give it a try on our next trip. It started badly (for us) because we were delayed because of bad weather) so had to call in that we were going to be late. "no problem, get here when you get here".... More

What a lovely restaurant. Whilst it is small it is really good. The food was really tasty, and the best steak I have had in a long time - I asked for medium rare and that is exactly what I had. The pate was smooth and light, steak cooked to perfection and the deserts were also light and delicious. Very... More

You will feel like you have stepped back in time to a totally charming and homey small country hotel even though it was built in the early 1990's. Not sure how much longer Dave and Jo will be taking reservations for dinner from non-guests, but if I had one night in Tobermory this is where I'd go. If you reserve... More

A great experience at this very friendly traditional restaurant. We enjoyed our drinks and canapés in the lounge area while choosing from the set menu and were spoilt for choice as it all sounded so good. We were not disappointed, all the food was delicious and well presented. The steaks and lamb being exceptional quality!

Best meals of all our trip. Jo's cooking is simply outstanding. Splurge! You are on holiday and you will not be disappointed by her dinner offerings. Dining room lovely and well furnished. Please have a cocktail in the sun room first. It is very well done.

We had heard good things about Highland Cottage and it lived up to our expectations. We started with an aperitif in the conservatory and chatted to other diners. David is the perfect host who engages with his guests without being intrusive - totally charming. The atmosphere is relaxed, friendly & welcoming. Dinner was excellent from the artichoke veloute to the... More

I booked into the restaurant and on arrival walked into a lovely cosy warm room. It doesn't seat many, but that made it all the more lovely. Dave, the host got the balance absolutely right between engaging and leaving for us to enjoy the food. The food was a set price menu, which was great to see. I started with... More
