I have been dining at The Ninth Wave since it first opened its doors in 2009 and what an extraordinary few years it has been – for the owners, the restaurant, the food industry and the Isle of Mull as a whole. I live on Mull and have been able to dine here at least once every year and feel... More

You put a fork full in your mouth, make a funny Mmm mixed with a Ohh and some Wow and then look around the table with wide eyes as your taste buds send you into heaven. The food is imaginative, beyond fresh, cooked and presented with the utmost of care. This is topped off by the location and the man... More

On a wild night on Mull we arrived at this remote restaurant not knowing what to expect. We had four courses and it was certainly Michelin star material. With excellent wines and friendly staff it was a lovely night. We then walked back to our B&B very happy

Ninth Wave is worth the journey to Mull on it's own. Stupendous cooking worthy of the best restaurants anywhere, matched by great, warm and genuine front of house service. One of the best meals/dining experiences I have had. Would return to Mull just to dine here. Thank you for a great evening.

Choose the restaurant after looking at reviews and wanting something special for my husband's birthday. The food was excellent and so was the service.

Wow! What an unlikely place for such a good place to eat. My husband and I enjoyed a fabulous evening at Ninth Wave. The service was impeccable, yet the whole place had a feeling of relaxed refinement. The dining room would not have looked out of place in a chic London restaurant, yet the approach road was a small farm... More

Delicious food -beautiful area and a wonderful experience. Chef Carla is a wizard. Choice of 3,4 or 5 courses is an innovative way to enjoy a variety of foods. Everything fresh and local.

We booked a table here about three months in advance, when planning our trip to the Outer Hebrides and Mull. It was to be the penultimate restaurant we visited during our 10 days away and we had high hopes. Despite the "high-end" look (and failry high prices) of the menu on the website, we were warmly wlecomed though we were... More

My daughter and I were lucky enough to get a cancellation at this popular restaurant. What a find. Attentive owner greeted us and was great throughout the evening. Food was beyond compare with plenty of time between courses and help with dealing with the lobster. All fresh ingredients which was a great change from other places. Would certainly recommend a...

We have wanted to visit here for a while, having read many reviews and followed on Facebook, however it is a good two hour drive from where we usually stay on Mull. However we were not disappointed. Carla dn John gave us a beautiful card and hand made chocs to celebrate our anniversary on arrival. The food was outstanding ,... More

The menu changes daily allowing us to serve the freshest ingredients, sourced from local fisherman's catches and crofter's bounty. Our Croft-grown produce and Organic Meats figure prominently on the menu. Lobster, crab and fish are often caught only hours before appearing on your dinner plate, by owner John, a Scottish fisherman who will also be your waiter for the evening. Hedonism on a Plate.Evenings only. Children over 12 welcome. Seasonal.Closed Nov-April 18th. Tuesday-Sunday. Booking Required.
