Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Absolutely brilliant lunch. Great decor and atmosphere. Really friendly and helpful staff with excellent service. We all (3 of us) had different mains -crab, smoked mackerel, scallops- all fresh and beautifully presented. All at a reasonable price. They really deserve to do well.

We have been staying in tarbert for about a week now and we have been to lulabelles countless times over the week, i can’t explain how amazing the food and atmosphere here is, the seafood is the freshest fish we’ve ever eaten, and the cocktails...are outstanding, the atmosphere is outstanding, one of the nights we went there was live music and also amazing decoration everything just comes together beautifully. Cathy is so lovely and welcoming, she cares a lot about her customers and always wants to know what they’re up to, we felt so welcoming and the food was gorgeous. Will definitely be coming back!More

After reading the reviews we decided to book a table. We had read about the themed street menu, but we were unsure which bit of the menu it was. I asked the waitress and was told that what was on the paper was what they...had. We struggled to know what to order but chanced a fish platter and another main with chips. The fish was beautiful, and the fish platter could have served 2 people quite easily. However, the service was very slow and even after we had paid, our plates were still on the table. We usually have a dessert but decided to just pay and go home for coffee. The languistines were beautiful but it would have been nice to have a finger bowl instead of going to the loo to wash our hands. The serviettes were very small too! We were disappointed that there were no local beers even though the website had said local beers are sold and the Moretti was served without a glass. It didn't seem right to swig it out of the bottle here. Overall, the food was lovely, although I would have liked the option of a hot dish or two. Also, it is usual to be offered the bill for checking before paying. Lots of niggles, sorry, did we just hit a bad night?More

I hadn't been back for a few years, but new the food was delicious. Brought my sister Easter week and we were very impressed with the new (to us) seafood tapas menu. We loved the Cantonese Langoustines, Thai Mussels, and Scallop Ceasar Salad and the...wine and cocktail options were lovely as well. We finished with herbal tea and one of their cocktail themed desserts. An exciting place to find in Mid-Argyll!More

We were staying in Clachan for a few days, and really struggled to find seafood places to eat, out of season. We came across this place and so glad we did. Food was outstanding, generous portion size and the fish was as fresh as fresh...can be. Lovely friendly service. Would thoroughly recommend.More

A relaxed ambiance slightly on the gothic side (It is halloween week) I tried the local beer (Argyll) and had a Poached Egg Rosti with spinach and a fresh Hollandaise. Very pleasant meal and certainly one I'll have again.

We stumbled across this little gem whilst staying at Portavadie. We ventured across the water to Tarbert for lunch and a wander. What luck - today was the launch of their Autumn / Winter menu. Alpine lodge is the theme! My hub tucked into Bouillabaisse...whilst I opted for the Raclette. Both out of this world. Washed down with the house Rose and Loch Fyne IPA! We then indulged in the deconstructed Toblerone Cheesecake….. a veritable feast. Food was amazing, ambiance and decor delightful and staff so helpful and friendly. We WILL return ❤️More
