“back for seconds”
Reviewed 21 June 2013

I LOVE this place! It's not local enough for me sadly, being from Glasgow, but definitely somewhere that's worth a detour to visit if you're up this neck of the woods. We were staying for a cycling birthday break in Lochgilphead when I realised that THE Tarbert was only 15 miles away. Yippee! We'd eaten here just once before, but it was so good, that I couldn't help but suggest a wee drive out there for my evening meal....well, it was my birthday after all! Everything was just as good as I'd remembered from my first visit. We had the scallops and chorizo with pasta. Perfect bursts of flavour throughout! Kristen and John, own and run the business themselves and do it so well. This sort of quality catering and hospitality sets the bar high and shows everyone that Scotland can have a fantastic food culture and great customer service at its heart! Well done!

We had a first class dinner at this restaurant. Very enjoyable. Good wine selection. The special was a pasta dish with scallops and chorizo. It was exquisite.

Ate recently again at Scotts.

Always pleasant atmosphere.

Food quality remains high. Menu has a wide choice for everyone, and specials focus on local seafoods.

I will continue to visit.

“A credit to the town”
Reviewed 13 May 2013

I had dinner here over Easter. I thought the menu was reasonable and the quality and service excellant. They do a good selection of local bottle beers! It is very modern and clean and no doubt the smartest place to be seen in Tarbert.
