simple, tasty food

Four of us had an evening meal here. If you're looking for a romantic, up market kind of place then avoid it. However, if you want tasty, simple food in a convivial atmosphere, you will not be disppointed. It was enjoyable and the staff are particularly friendly and helpful.

I have eaten in this tiny wee restaurant many times now when we visit friends in Inveraray. The family who run it are all so friendly and helpful...and more importantly (to me anyway) fully aware of the importance of cross contamination or gluten containing ingredients in my meal as I have coeliac disease. Today I had a prawn curry which... More

Ate here on Saturday 8th (breakfast) and Thursday 13th (lunch) On both occasions, my wife and I received a very warm welcome from Mrs Munro the owner, and extremely enjoyable food. If you are in the area, The Cottage, is well worth a visit.

I had a wonderful dinner here during my stay in Inveraray. The fish was savory and the desert, a toffee cake, was amazing.

had a look at other eating places before deciding on this restaurant. It is quite small but homely. The lady who served us was lovely and friendly. I had a small prawn Marie rose salad and my husband had a prawn Marie rose baguette. Mine came with chips as well (I shared them!), both meals were very tasty and reasonably... More

Ended up in the Cottage as the pub across the road said it would be an hour wait. From the moment we walked in the service was great. The food was lovely. Would definitely recommend.
