We went there twice, both times a party of six, the first time with a reservation, the second one without. Both times, the very friendly staff did all they could to accommodate us. The food was great (special mentions for the seafood sharing platter and the brie pané), the wines were good, the whisky selection quite comprehensive, the atmosphere warm... More

Stumbled on this hotel when we took a drive around the island. Lovely warm and welcoming atmosphere. The staff were friendly and accommodating. (We turned up on Easter Sunday without a booking. Very busy but still managed to give us a table). The food is delicious and If your ever visiting Rothesay you must come here.

We ate here both for lunch and dinner the following day so have a fairly good idea of the food on offer. For lunch amongst our party we had the burgers, the nachos, and the macaroni cheese. Our general impression was that everything was done well, and to a good standard. Based on this we decided to come back for... More

We ate here recently. The menu was impressive and varied. The service was friendly and efficient and the food was generously sized and well prepared and presented. We returned the next day for another meal.

This place was much better value for money in comparison to other places we had dined in Rothesay. Tables are quite close together squeezed in up one end of the room but food is very nice and staff friendly and attentive.

I had a superb meal at the Kingarth Hotel Restaurant today. Personal service from the friendly owner Maria, was first class. The menu provides traditional favourites plus some more modern ideas -my friend had a seafood platter, the size of which is quite breathtaking when it arrives! I had a scallops starter and then battered fish and chips - all... More
