A harbour lunch.

Had lunch here on day trip to Tarbert. We decided to eat here because we could see that it was the busiest place in Town. The service was quick and very friendly. I had the homemade soup, which was delilcious and we both had the Fish and Chips, which was excellent and there was lots of it. During... read more

In the area on holiday and popped into the café for some lunch (3 adults, 3 kids). Got seated together even through café was busy. Ordered food and drinks - all good but service a bit slow and one server in particular was extremely frosty and disinterested (had a foreign accent). Food good and assume as café was busy it...

Had a quick lunch, service prompt, friendly and efficient. The coffee was particularly good. The café is situated directly across from the harbour so has interesting views

I usually enjoy a bacon and chip roll with coffee but occasionally have a cheese burger with fries. There is always something with a sea-food theme on the menu and as a pizza conesuer I will be trying on of them next time. Visiting two or three times a month as I pass through Tarbert, I have nothing but praise... More

Nice little cafe that's worth a look. We called on a rainy Saturday afternoon for snacks and coffee. The food and drinks were fair but the service was rude, and disinterested. Monosyllabic staff with no eye contact let alone any kind of greeting, welcome or smile. When we arrived I thought it was just us but I saw a similarly... More

Nice selection of snacks. Always freshly cooked and served by pleasant staff. Good value for money. Typical cafe but none the worse for that.

Had lunch at this small cafe on the waterfront and had a tasty paninni with an Irn Bru. The service was OK but the waitresses made it seem more like a college hangout than a full-service restaurant. We returned again this summer for coffee and a snack and it still feels more like a local hang-out. While the food is... More
