We stayed in Tobermory last week with family for my dad's wedding. We had the wedding reception at Cafe Fish! Beautiful Food! Friendly Staff! Defiantly worth a visit. X

We greatly enjoyed all of the dishes we sampled. The seafood was fresh and tasty, and the service was excellent. The restaurant also has beautiful views of the sea. Children are welcome.

Fish platters are to die for. Only shame is it is that busy it is often fully booked so pre-booking is essential

This place is very popular so booking is essential.It,s not swish or stylish but the food will knock your socks off.We went 2 days before the end of our holiday and I wished that I could have gone again.Although scallops were not on the starters the chef obliged me and they were cooked beautifully ,getting that perfect balance between done...

Great seafood, unpretentious, seaview over the pier where fishing boats unload. I wanted to lick my plate! Only complaint is that I had a 7:30pm reservation (reservations essential - people were being turned away, midweek) and already my first two choices of Specials were gone by then.

Annual visit - although staying down at Pennyghael we always make the journey up to Tobermory to come to Café Fish. We love the innovative fish dishes and a glass of wine at lunch time. It is always busy and you can't book for lunch, so we always turn up at about 1220 to make sure we get a table.... More

Couldn't make a booking for the evening whilst we were there, so chose to visit at lunchtime. Good selection and range of starters and mains. Staff were attentive without being intrusive. Would have gone back again if we had had the time.

Best place to eat in Tobermory, in fact probably Mull. Everything is extremely fresh and flavours to die for. Best to book in the busy months as always popular! I have eaten here several times now and it is always excellent. Fully recommend it and worth every £. Look forward to my next visit.

A stand-out place for seafood lovers in a humble cafe setting. I had the scallops in champagne sauce, which was absolutely sublime. The food is a bit pricey but well worth the visit for a wee holiday treat 😉

This small inauspicious fish restaurant is fast gaining nationwide recognition as one of the best and most exciting places to eat in Scotland.
With a superb location & stunning sea views on the upper floor of the Calmac building on Tobermory pier, and their own fishing boat landing fresh local shellfish - its an experience not to be missed. Just turn up unannounced for lunch, but book in advance for dinner. Lots on offer for non fish eaters too.
