Three of us ate dinner here. We had a very nice table and the waitress was really good to work with. I had the Seafood Chowder. I ordered it because I love seafood chowder with lobster. The lobster seemed a bit dried out and leathery making it a bit difficult to cut with a spoon whilst eating. However, the lobster... More

When I'm on holiday abroad I like to get enough to eat. I like good food coupled with good value. The Mull absolutely fits the bill perfectly. The Caesar salad with chicken, the Caesar salad with 3 pieces of fish (a special), the Mull burger, the haddock dishes are all excellent. The food is extremely tasty and the staff courteous... More

Stopped in after having been ignored at another local restaurant. The food was amazing and reasonably priced. Decor isn't fancy, but if you want a good home cooked meal with friendly service, this is the spot to visit in Mabou!

The salads were good. While the burgers and some dishes looked freshly-prepared I suspect the seafood dishes are all pre-breaded and frozen--very average

Went here for dinner last night before the Beaton music concert at the town hall. The fish burger & coleslaw was fabulously (if this isn't a word yet, it should be!) delicious, and the Mull burger & Roast beef sandwich were equally tasty. The staff was very friendly as well. Will keep this place in our books for when we... More

We were looking for a place to have a sandwich in the area, and lucked into this. A very basic small-town restaurant where the food was good. I had the weird experience of helping a group of wheelchair-bound senior citizens navigate the not-so-accessible accessible entrance.

The food was really home-cooking style, unique and very good. The service was awesome as well. There is also a deli and it had great choices. Bakery goods, too.

This cafe had a great selection, friendly staff and excellent food. When we arrived there was a bus tour of teenagers there, but we were served quickly and the food arrived in good time. The quality, serving size and taste were perfect. Excellent spot to visit!!

Absolutely beautiful Mother's Day Dinner! The Surf and Turf (Steak and Bacon Wrapped Scallops) were done to perfection and the turkey dinner was spectacular. The rice pilaf is always delicious and the 5 sides that came with the turkey dinner were exceptionally flavorful. Service was quick and pleasant as usual!
