“Fantastic service and food”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

I booked lunch for 6 based on previous good reviews and am very glad I did. I didn't realise Scotts is not usually open for lunch but is happy to open if an advance reservation is made as I did. Consequently, we had the restaurant to ourselves and we were made to feel welcome from the moment we entered. This helped create a fantastic ambience for us and was matched by the freshness of the produce and the quality of the cooking. Special mention has to be made of the scallops that were the best I have tasted. Thank you for making our time there so enjoyable.

“Best bistro in Tarbert!”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

We were so impressed by Scott's that we returned for a 2nd time. The owner was very welcoming and friendly and our table had a stunning view over Tarbert harbour. All the food was of an incredibly high standard - the seafood was delicious and the home-made bread superb! We will be back!
