“Great food & sublime scenery!!”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 via mobile

Been here many times before, the place has taken a real step up. Very unique menu, with appetizing specials. All the food had a lot of effort put into it, and all of the desserts/sweets were homemade to perfection. Shout out to the friendly service, all in very quaint surroundings overlooking the bay... A real treat!

Thank MrCreosote420

“Lovely setting”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

Stopped for lunch here as most of the other poster have said the food is very good and if it is a good day you can sit outside and admire the beautiful view of the bay with all the boats, as it was a nice day when we were there it was very picturesque.

Well worth the 7 mile single track drive.

Reviewed 12 June 2014

We spent a very pleasant half hour here, while waiting for the Jura passenger ferry. What a perfect spot, with an amazing view.

“Lovely food, great views”
Reviewed 4 June 2014 via mobile

I recently came across the coffee shop at Tayvallich whilst on holiday & have to say that this is no run of the mill coffee shop. The menu was interesting, the food all freshly made & the view over the loch just wonderful even though the weather was not great, well worth the detour to Tayvallich.
