We went for good old Fish and chips, there was a choice of small or large portions wife decided to go for large, none of us finished it, way too much, chunky white fish and lovely chips. Yum

Visited this restaurant recently and it turned out better than I thought it would be. The food was very fresh and although they didnt have a big choice their is somthing for everyone. The standard and quality was fantastic. Will most definitely be returning.

We've been to the Cornerstone before and knew it served excellent seafood - so phoned ahead to book for lunch between the incoming and outgoing Jacobite train. As a result we had the perfect table - with a fantastic outlook over the harbour. Lovely friendly and speedy service and perfectly cooked seafood. Thank you!

We couldn't get a table the first time we tried so booked for the next evening. A great choice of food especially fish and seafood. The quality was excellent and the service was good. Very unassuming place with excellent food and drink. The Gaelic coffee was one of the best I've ever had!

Visited for lunch on 16th July having travelled to Mallaig on the Jacobite Steam Train. Very friendly and welcoming, excellent menu and a fab view of the harbour! Both the scampi-langoustine tails and battered fish and chips were excellent, as was the service, which made for a very lovely and relaxed lunch until our train returned to Fort William. Would...

Had lovely dinner there on 12 July. The scampi was the freshest I'd ever had, and the pear and ginger tart was lovely. Even the cheapest glass of house white was good. Plus the service was quick. Not often I go back to a restaurant, but I think I'll make an exception for the Cornerstone.
