We went here for lunch today following recommendations on tripadvisor and were not disappointed. The cafe is set right on the shore of loch vennachar, it truly is a fabulous setting.
Service was excellent. We both had a starter and a main and both were substantial portions so be very hungry if you are going to order two courses. Both had fish which was cooked to perfection and will definitely return. Highly recommended.

Lunch on the edge of the loch with a waterside terrace and all local menu. We had an excellent Cullen skink and two sponge cakes made on the premises that were meltingly delicious. Good local artwork on the walls and we even spotted the chef picking some herbs from the kitchen garden out the back. Can't wait to come back.

We just stopped for tea and cake, but very good they were too and superb location right on the edge of the Loch. My husband also stopped to speak to John who runs the fishing and boat hire, who was very friendly, helpful and informative, hopefully we'll be back some time.
