Just down the roiad from where we stayed in Salen. We ate here on our first and third nights and on each occasion the bar meals were excellent value for money. Would definitely recommend if you are staying nearby and don't want to drive into...More

A fascinating place, aviation-oriented, the owners are pilots. The curious thing is that food is actually delicious, and if you add the owners are charming, that's enough to recommend it warmly.

On our first full day on the island, a beautiful Sunday, we popped in to the hotel for a coffee but were tempted by the lunch. Seated outside, we were surprised to be treated to the sight of various small aircraft taking off and landing,...More

I only came here for the restaurant but, despite the slightly unprepossessing exterior, this was a cosy and friendly hotel. A lovely bar/restaurant with fantastic views served proper fresh coffee and delicious classic pub food. I only wished we'd been staying longer - next time...More

For a moderately priced menu, much to choose from. The haggis-stuffed chicken, mussels, and scallops were fresh and cooked to perfection. The salad and greens, locally grown, were tasty!

We had dinner at this restaurant and it was memorable. Service was excellent and the food was even better. We had lobster ravioli and seafood linguine. The amount of local seafood was amazing and the bread just kept coming to soak up the delicious sauce!...More

Hi, I appears that you were in the bar and not in our restaurant. All bar meals are ordered at the bar as stated on the menus and on boards in the bar. We apologise for the confusion.

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.
