On a rather "dreich" Wednesday evening last week we popped down to the Tavyallich Inn for dinner. Unable to book a table we arrived to a very busy restaurant & bar.

A small and friendly bar with excellent food and service. We stopped off for a quick bite of lunch and we're delighted with everything. A great selection of fresh local seafood, good portions and reasonable prices with a big enough choice to take all of the family even if they are not fish eaters. Would highly recommend.

Absolutely lovely experience. Comprehensive menus with a selection you would not get in many bigger restaurants. Freshly cooked and locally caught fish. The service from our waitress Norma was exceptional.

The range, quality and value of the food at the Tayvallich is excellent. Add to this great beers from the Ness Brewery, and the ever changing view of Loch A week what could be better?

The menu had a very good and wide selection of seafood and some meats. Our order was served promptly and piping hot. All the dishes consumed by our party of four were excellent. The service was excellent. Our visit was only spoiled by a very loud party of six at an adjoining table.

A beautiful location for this bar and restaurant looking out over the harbour of moored boats. Fresh seafood deliciously prepared. Definitely worth taking a trip over to Carsaig to see the sunset, it's amazing.

Lovely situation, and the option to eat outside if you wish. Service excellent. My lunch, seafood soup was excellent. The main course of haddock and chips was a bit disappointing given it cost £11.50. The fish itself was very good but the batter very greasy and left an aftertaste, Felt a bit let down by it, given the price.

Very welcoming and friendly with excellent food. The Inn is also situated in a wonderful scenic location, worth the journey to find this gem.
