Nice little restaurant, friendly staff. Food good and big portions (which is good) and the wine we had (forget which I'm afraid) was also good. Went as a couple. Stand out dish for me was the calamari starter. Little expensive for what it is, but its still good food and well worth a visit

The atmosphere was lovely in this restaurant. We visited on the same night as a large party of 15 which impacted on the level of service we received. Nevertheless the staff were friendly and the food was delicious! Very fresh and reasonably priced. Definitely worth a visit.

For a tiny village in a remote Scottish island to possess a restaurant like this is a miracle! Apparently it is the only Italian restaurant on Mull, but puts many local restaurants in Italy to shame. As it was a Tuesday evening we didn't expect it to be busy, but booked a table half an hour in advance and it... More

Just rounded off a great two weeks holiday on this fabulous island with a very good meal in a great little restaurant. Mussells, Scallops and Tiramisu well recommended served by efficient and friendly staff. Don't miss out on a visit here.

When we arrived in Salen I wanted to go here, and had a row with my partner who said their prices were 'taking the piss'. Having eaten less well elsewhere we ended up here on our last night, and ate an excellent meal with large portions and good service (they were busy with a large Italian party, and warned us... More

We found this little restaurant whilst exploring Mull & even though it was busy they managed to fit us in, The meal was excellent, I don't think I've had fresher seafood than the huge bowl of mussels I had as a starter & the tiramisu was magical. Well worth a visit but in busier times its better to book as... More

Been to the Med many times and last week service and quality matched usual standards. As it was just the two of us this time we had a cosy, intimate table. My pasta was delicious & Pete thoroughly enjoyed his steak. Mum is visiting next month and we will make sure The Med is on her list of Mull highlights.... More

For mains we had the chicken & sea bass both were good sized portions with plenty of fresh vegetables. The only down side was the group of 15 opposite us, when we were placing our... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your second visit to our restaurant.

My daughter and her fiance decided to join me on a short break to the Isle of Mull last week. Having been to The Mediterranea before, I suggested that we went there for dinner on Saturday evening. Once again, we had a fantastic meal with great service. Having ordered a selection of starters the chef, Rachel, suggested that she mix... More

As a member of a 15 strong group visiting this restuarant I as looking forward to good company and good food. The company of my group was excellent but the food was very disappointing for four of my group. Complaints regarding their food were passed to a young female member of staff who dealt with the complaints in the most... More
