As last time the meals we had were outstanding. Fish pie in particular is compulsory. We had a problem with the volume of the music so we asked for it to be turned down - and it was. We were most impressed, satisfied, and eager to return.

A fabulous café to have a seafood meal. We went 2 nights on our recent visit to Tobermory. The staff were extremely friendly and the food delicious. We booked our first night prior to our arrival to Tobermory and the second night while we were there. Bookings essential I would think as on both nights it was full with several... More

After reading other reviews, I was looking forward to our meal at Cafe Fish but it didn't turn out to be one of our favourites. The restaurant is very small so it did feel a bit cramped, and rather warm. The whitebait starter was a firm favourite and the mussels were also nice. I had a thai inspired dish which... More

Best fish meals I've ever had. Brilliant. Unpretentious, wonderfully fresh. Friendly staff. You must book though, as we smugly watched loads being turned away! Try the chermoula halibut.

Twice before I've reviewed Café Fish, most recently complaining about background music noise...except it wasn't in the background. Had to ask again for it to be turned down; it's a noisy place. Fresh fish is the order of the day, as always, and in that respect, if you've never been before, then it's exciting and appetising, and worth the visit,... More

We had made an early reservation and when we turned up at the restaurant we were the first customers to arrive. The staff looked a bit annoyed that we were there and after shouting back and forth over the music he eventually came out from behind the counter to talk to us. He tried to sit us at the worst...

Last visited Café Fish in the spring of 2008 and have wondered since I booked this meal three weeks ago could it be as good? Well I shouldn't have worried it was fantastic. Service was very efficient and we were extremely well looked after by the lovely Hannah who was local to Tobermory, she had a friendly manner and wanted... More

We had reservations and opted to sit outside as the inside felt like a furnace. The inside is very small and tight with space. We had lovely views of the harbor outside. We started with the fish stew that was bland. Had the squat lobster and langoustine for my entree that was fresh but just ok in flavor. My husband... More

Dived in here to avoid the lashing August rain! Had heard good things. We had fish pie & the fish stew. Delicious bread too. Both were delicious and so fresh. Waffle pud & coffee both great too. Theres so much more to try here and it won't be your cheapest meal but well with a treat - get to Tobermory... More

Great little place - highly recommend. Have their own fishing boat so they know exactly what they are feeding you. Interesting and fresh seafood and fish. Really enjoyed the langoustines and smoked mackerel pate. Not that keen on the pineapple salsa with the sea bream but there were many other dishes I would have liked to have tried. Halibut was...
