We called into the cafe for lunch. The staff who were extremely friendly made us feel very welcome. We both had chilli dogs and chips from on the specials board. They were delicious, a good portion and the homemade chips were excellent. Definitely give it a try.

We eat ear quite often after sailing. Take away available too which is handy when we're working on the boat. Home baking is really great. Friendly service. The cafe also does catering for small group functions. All in all highly recommended.

Bacon roll every Friday: an unmissable event. When friends come to stay, Friday Night Fish and Chips is a must, as is breakfast on Sunday morning. They also do an outstanding Cullen Skink. David, Pat and the girls have created a welcoming and friendly atmosphere and provide consistently excellent food.

Use this little cafe quite a lot prior to and after sailing, best time is Sunday Brunch although all of the food is tasty and fresh. Friendly and efficient staff. Whether a sit down meal or takeaway I can highly recommend.

I like to eat at Cafe Rhu. It is small, cosy and friendly. The food is of excellent quality, there is lots of it and at a very good price. Service is great too. I regularly go there for lunch or coffee. Also each year all the adults of the youth group that I work for go to Cafe Rhu... More

My title says it all. Even though I haven't eaten "in" it is my preferred lunchtime take out for me and my work colleagues. We have munched our way through all of the take away menu at one time or another, and the good bit is, you can pre-order by telephone. Soups, Burgers, Sandwiches, fish & chips to take away,... More

Went here with my husband and my brother for lunch on Thursday. We were welcomed by the waitress and asked if we minded sharing a table as there were no free table. We joined a lady in her own. We were given menus and told about the specials board. We were then offered another table when one became free. There... More
