“seafood”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

The seafood was excellent and perfectly cooked and presented and while not the cheapest around was well worth the value. The only negative would be lack of seating as at least 5 groups were turned away when i was there as it was full. Not to be visited just after the steam train gets in as it will be full.

“A Superb Lunch.”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

We ate here with our 3 children having travelled up on the Jacobite steam train. We had a selection of shellfish and fish, all of which was superb, with a well-priced, crisp Chablis. The service was very friendly and professional; the location is perfect with a great view of what goes on around the harbour. Not cheap, but without question well worth the money.

“Recommended.”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

If you're in need of sustenance when you get off the train at Mallaig make a beeline for this place as it tends to fill up quickly at lunchtime. It is slightly on the expensive side but it's worth it as the food is excellent and fresh. If you add to that the pleasant and efficient service by three young ladies with a sample of the local beer, it's a great place to while away some of the time before the train returns to Fort William.

“Fantastic, Yummy, a Treat”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

We ate here after getting the train from Rannoch to Mallaig and having a 2 hour stop.

There were four of us.

I had langoustine for starter and they were delicious... Not being an expert, the waitress kindly advised what to do with the 'crunchers' (thats the technical term), and the 'scooper'.

For main course, WOW WOW WOW, I had scallops with smoked salmon. Seriously there must have been 6-8 king scallops, I didn't eat my accompaniment of new pototoes... I didn't stop talking about those scallops for the rest of the day.

My husband had curried cauliflower soup, which he said was excellent, whilst my mum and step dad had cullen skink which looked like a meal on its own.

They all had the fresh haddock in breadcrumbs for their main, which again got raving reviews.

The plaice (nice play on words) isn't cheap, the Haddock main course was about a tenner if I remember, with the starters about £5-6. My main was pretty expensive, I think it was about £18, but it was a special meal out.... and was worth every penny.

Would I go back, Yes yes yes, as we visit Rannoch every year and will get train back and definately visit the Fishmarket restaurant.

Yum yum yum yum :-)

“Upmarket, skilfull”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

Pricey for Mallaig, but worth it for very clever blending of fresh local produce - try the scallops on a bed of chopped savoy with smoked salmon. Friendly and helpful service, and good (not pricey) short wine kist.
