Just wanted a coffee and a bite to eat to break our journey. Excellent coffee and nice fresh sandwiches. Very friendly staff and we also enjoyed the home-made Italian ice cream.

My friend and I and both our daughters stopped here for dinner on Friday. Our meal was absolutely delicious. We all had something different, pizza, pasta, spicy chicken burger and west coast trio (blk pudding/haggis) The food was to die for!! The staff were very friendly and attentive. It's a must if your visiting Inveraray.

Four of us had lunch here a few days ago, and we're all delighted. The food was fresh, hot, and tasty. The staff were affable and attentive, and made great recommendations from the broad menu. The homemade soup was delicious, and the fish and chips were steaming hot and crispy. You won't go wrong!!

On a four day break in Inveraray and tried this little restaurant on two lunch times. Could not have asked for more attentive service. Absolutely excellent, great food reasonably priced and very nice atmosphere. Will definitely be recommending to friends and family.

Despite being very busy, my lunchtime soup was very quickly delivered with a good piece of bread. Probably best place for lunch in Inveraray
