As I keep my boat at the Marina all year, winter or summer its very handy for a good roll in the morning and like all the other reviews,it does what it does very well, never be a big operation but in this case small is beautiful. Fresh food, real chips, fresh fish, great soups and the coffee is excellent. You get what you pay for and it is good value for money.
long may it continue.

I love going along to cafe rhu for breakfast on a sunday morning! The people who work there are just lovely. The food is fantastic and we have never ever been disappointed in all the months we have been turning up each and every week. Their fish and chips on a friday night is possibly the best ive ever eaten and I would never think of going anywhere else!

Enjoyed a tasty lunch recently at Cafe Rhu. This really is a hidden gem and at the end of a pleasant walk from Helensburgh. Great food freshly prepared, smashing soup, homebaking and excellent coffee all served by friendly staff. What more would you need? Maybe a lie down! Don't know why someone recently posted saying the sandwiches were curly as food is always freshly prepared at Cafe Rhu. I wonder if they did actually visit since the review is well out of line with everyone else's opinion. Can thoroughly recommend this place.

Must be about my 5th lunch in this little place, but each time months apart.
It just seems to get better. The variety, the service, the food, and the atmosphere.
Modestly named Cafe Rhu, the food is much much more than "cafe" food.
If you're wandering anywhere within range of this place, try it, You'll be pleasantly surprised.
