“Best fish and chips I've ever tasted!”

Popped in whilst waiting on the ferry for something pub grub like.

I had the fish and chips which were by far the best I've ever tasted! Fish as fresh as you will taste. My partner had venison chops which were very tasty.

Service was excellent and the food was quick as they seem to time everything for you with the ferry (plus points there!)

The price was very good as most restaurants in the island are quite steep.

The bar and restaurant decor is a little tired but with a view of Jura then not much to complain about!

You must go in if you are visiting the island!

We did not stay at the hotel, but the restaurant was recommended to us by our innkeeper as the best seafood on the island. She was right!

The ambience is cafe, so don't go there for atmosphere; it is not romantic. It is not gourmet food. What it is, is seafood a few hours from the sea, cooked simply and to perfection, and served on huge platters for your pleasure. We were told that the lobster we were enjoying had been caught that afternoon by a free-diver, and it tasted like it. The freshest I've ever had. Yummy! Bring a bib.
