Picked this restaurant as the reviews were all positive and have not been disappointed!!!! Fantastic service by Ronan, great steak and seafood in a beautiful open dining area. Must be a great view of the small isles in the summer. Looking forward to another visit hopefully very soon.

We have been here a few times and the food is amazing. The service is great and the decor/ambience is lovely! The venison is to die for - perfectly cooked and melts in your mouth and there are no words to express how good the sticky toffee pudding is!

Such a gem of a restaurant with stunning views over the sea front towards Skye. Really friendly and helpful staff and incredibly delicious, beautifully presented food. We lounged here for several hours during the winter whilst enjoying the warmth of the log burning stove. If you're in Mallaig and looking for fabulous food with a view, look no further!

The restaurant is located in a conservatory at the front of the West Highland Hotel with spectacular views of the sea and islands. The table settings, furniture and decor are modern and fresh. Superb food, beautifully presented and large portion sizes. Service was excellent, friendly and unobtrusive. Lovely wood-burning stove provided a cosy atmosphere. Everything just perfect!

A fantastic seafood restaurant in Mallaig, plus there's also something for those 'not into seafood' !! My partners eyes nearly popped out when she saw the Langoustine. . . As big as Lobsters !! Her Sea Food Platter took her a while to work through, and she liked her fingers when she finished. I had a similar 'meat based' meal... More

Newly opened in 2016 we serve delicious local cuisine in the Terrace, indoor and out. Come and sample some excellent food matched with a extensive selection of wine. There is a choice of almost 300 malt whiskeys and 20 gins, you can enjoy in front of the cozy stove watching one of the best views Scotland has to offer.
