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

this café has an unbelievable menu which could put a 5 star restaurant to shame. I visited it twice, first time I had the best chicken broth and second time I had baked haddock in the most delicious sauce served with perfect chips. I was sadly unable to have a third visit because it was too busy!

Been here lots. Always go when in Tarbert. Lovely food. Great staff. You get a really good skinful for the price and its good. I once took a coach load of children there for an icecream and although we asked them for 30 icecreams they were really helpful and obliged. loads of choice.

The menu lets you know that the food is freshly prepared and you will have a short wait for it to arrive at your table. The fish and meat are sourced locally. We had fish... More

Called in to this cafe having been directed by the local tourist info when looking far quick tea for our 3 year old before catching the ferry back to Portadavie.
