We ate here for evening meal and found the food to be pleasant but not outstanding. The haggis starter was good but the main course of Guinea fowl served with puy lentils and tarragon, lacked any hint of tarragon! It was strangely served in a large dish which made cutting the meat very difficult. Ordered panacotta for sweet but this was rather disappointing and somewhat solid. Service was prompt but the restaurant lacked any atmosphere. Reasonably priced, food was ok, but not worth a special trip.

We came here on our last night as it is very close to our holiday cottage. What a mistake. We should have come on the FIRST night and eaten here all week!!
Everything- staff, ambience, location and especially the food were fantastic. Prices very reasonable too.
Lesson learned. First night next time.

Stopped here for lunch whilst touring round Mull. Website said booking essential but we were able to just drop in and get a table. Small menu but food was lovely.

We had an evening meal here, booked a table for 730pm and thought that was quite early but when we arrived it was very busy! Spacious tables and lovely atmosphere. Friendly staff and great food. I had the mushrooms on toast for starters and they were the best I have ever had. My husband had the soup which was also delicious. For mains I had the cod with peas a la francaise with crushed potatoes and my husband had the homemade burger. Again all fantastic, well cooked and presented. We would definitely recommend a visit.

Great local food , well cooked and presented. Very relaxed atmosphere for friends to chill, you will need a taxi or designated driver but well worth it.
