The two of us specifically checked if this restaurant was dog friendly before making a booking. We did so for the Saturday evening have been told from the horse's mouth that it was.
However, when we turned up we were informed that we could not eat inside as one of the diners "was allergic to dogs". A table outside was offered but as it was cold and midge ridden we decided against the offer.
Disappointing. Grow a pair. If you purport to run a dog friendly restaurant then incidents like this shouldn't happen. Put the "so called allergic customers" into the garden.

Excellent. The menu was so innovative and enticing. Gorgeous setting right on the bay. High quality fresh and local ingredients. Service was great, owner so friendly and helpful. We felt very welcome and it was such a lovely atmosphere. Absolutely loved this place, can't wait to return

We visited here for a meal to celebrate our anniversary and had booked a table for the following night before we had finished our starters. Both meals were outstanding. The food is superb, with so many choices and the staff are all fabulous. We are now trying to manufacture excuses to return.

Lovely ,friendly, courteous staff and one of the best seafood meals we have ever had . If we could give 10 stars we would. Sorry I made such a mess eating my more than delicious crab claws.

We visited to celebrate an occasion, the food was delicious and reasonably priced.

We enjoyed it so much that we made a special trip back to Gigha the following week. Again the food was delicious and just as enjoyable.

Staff very helpful and friendly on both occasions.
