Mallaig Lunch

We fancied fish and chips and climbed the stairs to the restaurant and were shown to a table with a view of the harbour. We had large pieces of haddock coated in a crisp, grease free batter with chips and peas - as good as any we've had anywhere. The service was friendly and efficient - well worth... read more

What a terrific little spot with a great harbor view. Don't let the cafeteria style room dissuade you. The food is top notch. Had a fresh mozzarella and tomato salad and a baked, gluten intolerant friendly fish and chips that were outstanding!! My bf had a scallop starter and their traditional fish and chips which was the best fish and... More

We had high expectations of the seafood in Mallaig, and quite honestly this restaurant exceeded these expectations. After super starters we both opted for straightforward fish and chips. Accompanied by lovely cold white wine this was delicious. I will be braver next time and try the langoustines - I'm just not sure how to deal with the shells, claws etc!... More

We chose the Cornerstone during our Jacobite Train stop-over. So glad we did. Everything about our visit was outstanding; clean and cozy atmosphere with a great view, friendly staff, and absolutely delicious food. The Mussels were some of the best we've had, and the Thai Monkfish Curry was top notch. If we lived nearby, the Cornerstone would be a regular... More

We had a quick bite after a day trip to Rum. Our driver recommended Cornerstone Restaurant to us and we were so pleased with our dinner! We had fresh Haddock fish and chips that were the freshest tasting I have ever eaten! Absolutely perfect with crisp chips and a wonderful desert Cherry Parfait. Outstanding service and everyone very friendly, too!

Stopped off for something to eat after we took the steam train to Mallaig in the afternoon. Great location with views over the harbour. The service was friendly, quick and efficient which suited us as we had the train back to catch less than 2 hours later. Food excellent and very reasonable. Fish and chips first class and the staff... More

Decent food but not the best fish and chips I've had, not the best value either. I visited here solely off the trip advisor ratings.

I was in Mallaig for just one night and so wanted to eat in the best restaurant. The owner of the B&B where I stayed said they were always happy with this one, but added that every place in Mallaig was good. So I tried Cornerstone. You open the door to stairs that go directly up to the dining room.... More
