Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We thought it was just going to be burger and chips to please the kids, but it's far more! While the kids enjoyed their meal, we turned to the menu for the day and finally chose what were the best mussels in white wine for...a long time plus wonderful crab claws. Great baking too (and of course bright blue bubble-gum icecream for the kids). Excellent service, lovely location. And a much-appreciated playpark too.More

Came here twice during our stay. First time the food was really good. Second time food wasn't as impressive but was ok. Apple pie done in the microwave was stodgy and chicken burgers overdone and a bit stringy. Service was fantastic both times though.

Just out for a drive and stopped off for a spot of lunch. Ordered a chicken mayonnaise bloomer with salad and crisps at what I thought was a reasonable price of £5 until the plate arrived. 2 slices of white bread with chicken mayo and...crisps.. This was not what I was expecting, a bloomer is thick country style loaf with a lovely crust not two slices of cheap white. Dissapointment personified!!More

I am giving this place 5 stars just for being open for lunch! It is hard to find places to eat on this island. The food was actually pretty good. Enjoyed the steak pie and fish& chips. The chicken Tikka was overly salty and nan...bread was lackluster. The space is bright and busy, looks like a community center rather than a restaurant. They had good dessert selection and a bar. The server was lovely.More

Great place to eat. We are here one evening. Simple food but cooked really well and lovely friendly atmosphere with amazing sea view. The pakoras were particularly worth trying.

Really beautiful view over the water, particularly at sunset. They have some British staples on the menu but the India specials are really fantastic. Would recommend for a meal with a view!

We stopped off here on our way back down to Portnahaven, it was difficult to find anywhere to get lunch, even local hotel only serving at the weekend, which was a definite plus for us, even though it was very busy we got a lovely...welcome and shown to our table, the lovely waitress came and took our drinks order and didn’t rush us into deciding. The young man that was behind the bar brought us our drinks was quiet but also polite, the food was served quite quickly and was delicious and hot, the only minus I have is that we’ve only discovered it 2 days before we go home!More

Totally fabulous Islay’s really busy at the moment, made worse by Brexit staff shortages and increased home tourism. The Port Mor community cafe was a real find today. We had the Cullen skink, chicken curry and the cheesecake, and took away the pakoras with mint...dip to have for dinner at our B&B. All amazing. Great service, friendly owners and the most spectacular views. If there is a more beautiful view from a campsite in Britain we haven’t found it. Thank you very much for feeding us today when we thought we were down to crisps!! You have a lovely business there and we will be back.More

It’s tough at the moment to find anywhere to eat at the last minute. About as tough (I’d wager) as finding staff for any kind of hospitality establishment. We booked in in the morning for an evening meal. The food was swiftly delivered, delicious and...beautifully cooked. The staff were relaxed, kind and in a jovial mood. Couldn’t really fault anything. (One of the chefs is evidently a master of pakora batter too.) Top notch!More

We had a thoroughly enjoyable lunch here, and between the menu choices and the specials board, we’re impressed by the imaginative food alongside ‘standards’ like fish and chips… Heartily recommended. Some previous reviews note poor service, and I guess this relates to a young perhaps...inexperienced waiter, to which I’d say ‘give him a chance’.More

We were in for dinner on Monday night and the service was shocking, a young girl behind the bar using vile language. She also proceeded to stick the middle finger up. I would say customer service and training is needed

The sign outside said, 'last orders by7.30pm. Takeaways can always be ordered before 7.30pm.' On entry at 7.28pm we were told we couldn't have a table. When asking for a takeaway the reply was 'No.' We said it was just before 7.30pm and the lad...said they had been very busy. Disappointed with the poor customer service as their times should be adhered to. More importantly their customer service should be more polite. We wouldn't have minded if we'd been politely told that the kitchens had just closed for service An abrupt no was just bad manners!More
