The same extended family run the fish and chip van on the pier. This is a good, if a tad chilly, alternative. The question is ... will that be open. You could ring the Cal-Mac office in Tobermory and ask ... it is a small... More

This small inauspicious fish restaurant is fast gaining nationwide recognition as one of the best and most exciting places to eat in Scotland. With a superb location & stunning sea views on the upper floor of the Calmac building on Tobermory pier, and their own fishing boat landing fresh local shellfish - its an experience not to be missed. Just turn up unannounced for lunch, but book in advance for dinner. Lots on offer for non fish eaters too.
