Been there more then once throughout the last year and it's just always worth going! The seafood is super fresh and so tasty. Just go there for lunch and visit the Talisker Destillery afterwards. Oysters and Whisky definitely work great together :)

Freshest seafood in a shack in amazing location uphill from Tallisker Distillery. Run by charming couple, He is cook but also harvests oysters. She works the counter but also shucks the oysters. Takeout only. No beer. But picnic tables with amazing view.

Dogs are allowed in the picnic area and there are dog bowls and water available. Im afraid we cannot allow dogs in the main shop as we have live and cooked seafood about. Thanks Paul The Oysterman
