Great restaurant. As we were there recently I should point out that they had limited opening hours as the holiday season clearly comes to an end. We hadn't booked and went along for an early dinner and only just squeezed in. So I would definitely recommend booking. Great service, delightful food and worth every penny.

Brilliant cosy and casual restaurant located on the main road in Mallaig with views over the harbour. Lots of seafood specials including Hake, Langoustinrs, scallops and breaded fish which was absolutely delishious. Staff were very friendly and efficient. Represented good value too. Brilliant!

We had lunch here after arriving by train from Fort William. This is a great place to watch what is happening in the harbour whilst enjoying a seafood meal. We very much enjoyed our lunch here.

Very nice little restaurant just across from the harbour. The restaurant was quite busy on the evening we went .. Always a good sign! We both ordered the haddock and chips which was lovely. Well presented, and served by friendly attentive staff. The pear and ginger pudding with ice cream I had for desert was absolutely delicious. Highly recommended if... More

Doesn't look too exciting on the outside but the reviews were good so decided to give it a go. We ordered four different dishes and each one was excellent - fresh fish, well prepared, well presented, with friendly staff as well. Couldn't ask for more.

Lovely restaurant up a flight of stairs across from mallaig harbour . We arrived just as the main lunchtime rush was finishing ,which was pretty busy to say the least . The food was lovely, seafood fresh & locally sourced & the venison burger delicious . Well worth a visit if in the area.

My wife always orders mussels, these I'm told, were the best she had ever had. I tried one and they were delicious. My teenage son had them too and it takes a lot to keep him quiet. The restaurant has a cosy and homely feel with great views over the harbour. Each of the main courses were fantastic, freshly prepared... More

Had checked out possible eating places on Tripadvisor before travelling to Mallaig on The Jacobite. We headed straight there and were rewarded with best view in the house overlooking the harbour. The welcome was friendly, the service efficient and the fish beautifully fresh - just a shame about the peas with the fish and chips. Otherwise would recommend thoroughly -... More

We stopped in for lunch while on the steam engine from Fort William. We were very happy with the meal, the service was excellent and the atmosphere was authentic.
