Superb setting lots to watch with planes frequently landing and taking off overlooking the Sound of Mull. We ate in the beautiful wood lined bar area but restaurant looked nice too. Smallish menu but good food. (Nice to see).Would go again.

At the Glenforsa the attitude to food is one of simplicity. Good food, cooked well and presented in comfortable surroundings - not forgetting quality wines!The food is mainly seasonal and the Glenforsa try to utilise the best that Scotland has to offer, whether it be Venison from Mull or Scallops from Tobermory, aiming to give customers an authentic taste of good, local food.
