We have just eaten in this restaurant and the experience was terrible which considering we only went for a light lunch is pretty amazing. I have eaten in restaurants from San Francisco to Venice and many l points in between including many tourist traps and I have never felt so done by any eatery. My son and I had a... More

Been coming here for more years than I care to remember and it's always first class. Tried a couple of the newer places but always come back to The Cornerstone. Simply the best.

We come up to Arisaig each Easter with the caravan. Last year we found The Cornerstone and was blown away by the amazing food. To ensure that we got a table again this year we booked about 3 weeks in advance of our stay. Again the food is SO good! My scallops starter was superb and my main course was... More

My friend and I visited the Cornerstone Restaurant twice during our stay in Mallaig. The owner was very friendly and made us feel very welcome. The food was very good too.

Very enjoyable lunch, with a great view on a sunny day (great view on any kind of day) and friendly service. I had scallops to start, and mussels, but easily could have made other choices. Have been coming here over the years and it is always a treat.

We arrived in Mallaig and the ferry was delayed (bad weather) so had to find a spot to wait. Walked in here and ordered the fish and chips and was blown away. This, and the fish and chips we eventually had in Syke, were the two best fish and chips of my life. Much better than anything I've had in... More
