The surroundings are lovely, and the food was really tasty. I was part of a package trip so i expect it was a set menu, but there was always something vegetarian on the menu. The staff were incredible. Would definitely recommend eating here.

You probably wouldn't book this restaurant if you aren't staying in the hotel but it's worth the hike up the hill. The hotel is old fashioned, stately and quite charming and the views from the terrace and restaurant are fabulous. The food is well cooked,...More

Enjoy stunning views over Tobermory Harbour or across the bay and out to the Sound of Mull. This charming hotel returned to private ownership in September 2008, and is now undergoing a slow transformation back to its former glory. If excellent food, friendly service and a great atmosphere are what you're looking for, then the Western Isles is for you.
