Ate here a couple of times on a recent trip to Tarbert. Food was tasty enough and pretty good value for money. Nice friendly staff.Not the best restaurant in Tarbert but definitely good and worth a visit.

On a recent holiday in the area we ate on our first evening at Ca Dora Cafe. The quality of the food was really good and prices were excellent. The service was extremely friendly and efficient. The extensive menu allowed us to eat there twice more during our visit without having to repeat our menu choices. Would happily recommend this... More

Always enjoyed the food in this cafe but lately the sullen and poor service from some of the younger waiting staff has been very disappointing. There needs to be someone in overall charge keeping an eye out to see that tables are cleared, orders taken and customers not left waiting to be served at the counter. Also please get some... More

Tarbert is a lovely place to visit when in Kintyre and the Ca Dora Café is a great little spot for lunch. You know its good because it is always busy with locals! Very good kids menus with lovely pizzas and fresh milkshakes! The staff could be a bit friendlier at times but maybe they are seasonal? We will be... More

We arrived just as they were opening and were welcomed to take a seat. Coffee was very hot which was just what we needed on a wet and cold morning. Breakfast was delivered quickly and was delicious. Appearance from outside is not the best as there are cheap orange plastic chairs that give a down market impression. Inside there is... More

Stopped off for lunch - lovely baked potato, good salad with it, good big portion and exactly what I wanted. Nice coffee too, with quick, attentive staff.

You can byob. Also helpful. We didn't, as we didn't know about it, but saw another table bring in their own wine. Our only complaint, and it... More

Sailing is hungry work and we wanted tasty calories. This was the place to get them. We ate here in the early afternoon on two occasions. The fish was fresh, the batter crisp, tasty and the chips were stunning, high quality thrice cooked and chunky. The accompanying salad was plain but fresh and the coffee ground. Service was variable but... More
