We booked for an evening meal whilst on Harris - this followed excellent dining experiences throughout the Western Isles. As always in this part of the world the staff were helpful and friendly - and the dining environment was excellent. However, our main courses (whilst perfectly competent as far as they went) were simply very ordinary and the meal did... More

Two years ago we were met by indifferent service and an unimaginative menu. This year, things were completely different: the service was attentive without being intrusive; and the menu was interesting and the food well presented and tasty. Sundays offer almost no alternative in Tarbet and we'd wondered what we'd get when booking. But, our worries were dispelled.

Quite a limited menu, something to bear in mind if staying for a few days. The "specials" were the same on consecutive days. Service isn't the greatest with young staff who although friendly were prone to many mistakes. Not averse to turning away guests and directing to bar if restaurant has a big party.

Excellent fish cakes followed by local mussels. Good wine and beer. Slightly pricey, which is a shame (especially the scallop main course at £28 was beyond the budget)

We had our Xmas night out in the bistro and the food was to die for, incredibly well priced and the atmosphere was lovely too. If you are in Harris it is so worth making a booking.

Popped into the bar for some food while waiting to catch the ferry back to UIG. Food was pretty decent and the lunch menu excellent value. The bar is comfortable and I thought the service was friendly, seems to be where the locals go to use the wifi.

Was struggling to find somewhere which was open on a Sunday then stumbled upon this place. Had a lovely salad. Quick service.

Good food quality. Chef does a good job. Not much choice in October! Expensive, with poor service. No service or information on items like soup of the day! No bread offered. No water offered. Slow service. Others entered restaurant and ordered after us were served first. Had to correct the bill at the end of the meal. I added items... More
