A most interesting location for a very good meal. Had the lobster and thoroughly enjoyed it, as did my wife with the crab. Didn't eat here last time I visited and regret it. Worth the boat trip alone. You also have a wonderful view if you eat outside, but that's down to the weather. Nice cheesecake, not the horrible sweet commercial kind.

Visited a few years ago so went back on our return to Gigha. The waitress forgot about us (they were busy) but the owner spotted us and remedied the situation. We had 2 courses and shared a dessert. The food really was excellent - fresh, well cooked and well presented. There were a lot more people around tha on our last visit. It's not the cheapest but you get what you pay for and there is a wide range on the menu. We will be back.

What a great place to go for a change.only a twenty minute boat ride from the mainland and you are on gigha. With boats running every hour it is possible to go for the afternoon. Food was very tasty but was a bit more expensive than what we would normally go for. Would recommend and would return.

Delicious food and excellent service at a very reasonable price. This was a good experience and I would recommend this restaurant. It's a small place and I would advise making a reservation - we were last in !

We were told to go here by the ferryman and we are so glad we did. Langoustine tails straight from the sea and the best duck I've ever had. My husband refused to share his calamari! It's worth going to Gigha just to dine here on the beach!
