Our third meal here on various visits to Mull over the last few years and won't be the last. They had previously advertised a pick-up/drop off service to Dervaig (where we were staying) on their website but advised they no longer did that - however...More

Great local food , well cooked and presented. Very relaxed atmosphere for friends to chill, you will need a taxi or designated driver but well worth it.

This restaurant, in a modern building situated halfway between Dervaig and Calgary, stakes its reputation on sourcing all food as locally as possible. So everything is fresh, and it's cooked to perfection too. Well worth making the effort to visit.

Out on it's own this amazing restaurant uses local suppliers and proudly displays them on the menu. The quality of all the ingredients is prepared in such a way to do justice to local farmers and fishermen. We'll worth a visit.
