“First class restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

Small , cosy and friendly restaurant serving excellent food. Visited last Saturday, busy but staff very welcoming, attentive and knowledgable about food on menu. Good selection on menu + daily specials reasonably priced. The black pudding ,melted applewood cheese & salad starter was very tasty, followed by ribeye steak, again good flavour and cooked to perfection. Good choice of sweets but too full to have one.Both my husband and I voted this meal the best we had while on a 6 day visit to Oban & Inverness.
The food and staff were a credit to Scottish hospitality. Do visit when in Oban.

“Excellent restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2014

This is a great restaurant, which is very cosy due to it being quite small.

The food and service was excellent.

“Promising but didn't quite deliver”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

We saw the set menu of this restaurant on the main street and decided to go there. Once we were in and drinks served, to our surprise we read a note on the menu that the set menu was only available until 7:30pm. Well, we were hungry and already there, so we stayed.

We chose to share scallops as starter. They were nice but a bit rubbery.
It took around 20 minutes to get us the main courses, which were the cous-cous stuffed peppers (very nice!) and the lamb cutlets special. They were a bit fatty, but they were accompanied by gorgeous vegetables and a stunning sauce.

The girl who served us was very nice and friendly.
