Had lunch at the Gallie Craig after a scenic drive drive down the peninsula from our holiday cottage. Name is a bit of a misnomer - this is much more than a coffee shop, serving a variety of freshly-prepared hot meals and snacks. A wonderful venue, with spectacular views in all directions, a variety of walks right from the car park, and the lighthouse and RSPB visitor centre right next door - the latter, in particular, is well worth a visit, with enthusiastic and engaging staff ready to answer any and all questions on the local wildlife. The views from the restaurant are spectacular, the wildlife amazing, the food beautifully prepared and very tasty, and the service friendly and efficient. This has become a regular trip for us during holidays in the Rhins; the cafe's opening hours vary according to the season, so make sure you check before going, but trust us - it's worth it.

Have visited Gallie Craig and the Mull of Galloway several times. Infact a visit to this area wouldn't be complete without calling in for a cuppa. Drinking hot chocolate whilst soaking up the views of the Isle of Man and Luce Bay have got to be one of life's high lights. The staff are so friendly. The food is freshly prepared. All the better when there's a howling gale outside and you're snug inside.

Myself, my Husband and our dog visited the Gallie Craig at the Mull of Galloway last week and we weren't disappointed. The views were as amazing as ever and there were so many swallows flying around the cliffs. We sat outside and enjoyed the heat from the sunshine, together with the superb coffee and cake and the amazing views.
The Gallie Craig is certainly worth a visit and after a climb up the lighthouse its fantastic to sit somewhere so peaceful and enjoy such delicious refreshments. We will be back!

We had a very nice drive down the mull of Galloway and had lunch here. The food was very nice and tasty. The views across to Isle of Man was spectacular. The server was very informative as we were asking her about the area. We had a lovely day out here.

Thoroughly enjoyed lunch today at Gallie Craig - it was a beautiful sunny day. Had macaroni for lunch which was delicious. You just have to try the lemon meringue pie - it had just been made and was still warm and wobbly - scrummy stuff.
