Food was really good, portions are ok (could be a little bigger) and staff was very friendly. We enjoyed our Dinner and would eat here again.

Caught in a storment we dashed into the eaterie we came across....and we're pleasantly surprised. So pleased that we returned the following 2 evenings! Excellent food (the salmon starter was exceptional) and friendly efficient service. We were sorry to leave.

WE must confess that overall the quality of food in Ullapool never meets our expectations. It doesn't taste exceptional and is quite expensive. However, of all the places we've visited at Ullapool, FBI was our favourite. The food is better than in other places and...More
