Stopped off here on the way to Machrahanish with friends and we were very pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food. Highly recommend.

“Great Service, Great Food...Great, Great, Great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

We went here last weekend after a long days sailing through the Crinan Canal. Once there one of our party became ill and had to leave. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. They were willing to scrap (the already cooked order, cooked by the under staffed kitchen!) free of charge or simply wrap up the food to take away. That in itself was unbeatable service in my eyes. The food was devine accompanied by lovely wine. We couldn't recommend this a restaurant more! What a find! Thank you and we will be back :)

“Fabulous food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

Loved the fish pie and the steamed ginger pudding. This must be the best restaurant in Tarbert. Brenda was amazing and came running after me when I left my favourite scarf behind. We had a great time - thanks Brenda!
