We visited the Argyll Cafe on a short stop over on our way to Glencoe from Arran. At first we walked around town looking at other options, thinking we weren't in the mood for fish and chips. Ending up back at the cafe (options are pretty limited on a weekday evening in Lochgilphead) we thought we'd take a look inside.... More

I had fish and chips two nights in a row while in Lochgilpead on a fishing trip on the 10th & 11th July 2015 it was amazing. The fish is freshly cooked while you wait, and there were people queuing outside the door so what does that tell you! They were so good that on my return on the 25th... More

We had amazing fish and chips from their chip shop. During my three month stay in Argyll I've had fish and chips here four times. Anyone stopping off here will not be disappointed, it's really, really good. I'm not so sure about the cafe they own next door. I went in there on my first visit but nobody came to... More

I recently went here with some of my friends for a coffee and cake. The service is poor I get the feeling they are not 100% confident with what they are doing and the prices are expensive.

The cafe may look a bit tired decor wise but was clean. It isn't the biggest cafe I've ever been in so if you have a lot of people in your party then you may have to visit elsewhere, although the waitress was happy to shuffle tables and seats to accommodate our family of five. The waitress was friendly, cheerful... More

Had a takeaway from here last week, everything cooked freshly for you, and with some of the best chips I've had in ages. Really tasty, and properly browned rather than the insipid pale offerings so common now. Portion size is good, and great value for money

Visited this Cafe on 10th April.....ordered the proverbial Fish, chips & mushy peas. Whilst the waitress took our order quickly we waited at least 15mins for our coffees' & another 15mins for our food. The food itself was ok but nothing special.
