We stayed in Mallaig for 2 nights and ate here both times- great variety and delicious fresh seafood selections, too. On the lighter side: The seafood chowder is the best I have ever had and the side salads are amazing.

We visited this gem of a place for lunch. The macaroni was absolutely fantastic and the scamper and chips was also fantastic. Yòu had better be hungry as they are not shy on the portions. Prices are very reasonable.
