We visited this restaurant on a recommendation from a visit 7 years ago, and did not really know what to expect. The initial welcome by William was unusual to say the least, but over the course of the evening we came to understand the method behind his madness - he chats to the customers while the food is being prepared...

This is a fairly small restaurant and the service is personal - William always makes you feel welcome - roll on... More

We visited this restaurant to sample the seafood platter for two, we were not disappointed. What you don't get is a large plate of seafood with a freeforall dive in. The platter is five courses of seafood, all individual and all superbly cooked and presented. My two favourites were the seafood chowder with Thai fish cake and sweet chilli sauce,... More

Such a shame, as this restaurant has such a lot going for it. Excellent service, attractive decor, bread, vegetables, desserts etc all good BUT all the fish we had was severely overcooked. Two lovely pieces of skate had been grilled to oblivion - instead of the classic fried in butter with capers as promised by the menu - and was... More

Great staff and amazing food, great value too. We hadn't booked a table but were made welcome and nothing was too much trouble. We are sea foodies and loved the variety and quality

We ate twice in three nights stay in Tobermory. There is so much variety in the menu it is hard to choose. It gets very busy so booking is essential.

The menu said "steak with choice of sauce. Buttered mash served with tomatoes mushrooms and garnish of salad". What turned up was totally different.The just cooked mash had chopped raw onion in with old tasting dried herbs. The mushroom looked sad and was coated with pesto. The salad looked like stir fry. It had so much dressing on, looked like... More
