Go in the pub. Say you want dinner and wait up to an hour. Good meal. Strange day as chef had broken her foot and stand in could do most dishes but not steak. Service functional but a little more attention to customer would help....More

Realizing that our dinner choices in Fionnphort were extremely limited, we expected to dine on fish and chips or other pub fare both evenings there. Much to our surprise, the offerings at The Keel Row were outstanding and varied. Highly recommend.

Nope, you just turn up & wait which can be quite a while as a lot of people/family's coming off the ferries from Iona try to eat here, can be very busy in the main holiday season,not sure what's it like this time of year.
