We had an excellent dinner at the Smiddy on a Friday night. There was a very welcoming atmosphere and although busy, it was still relaxing. The food itself was excellent and very well presented. The staff were very helpful and efficient. There was a real mix of customers from a group of ladies to couples and families. It was a bit of a find in Lochgilphead and to be recommended.

It's not on the main street but certainly worth the walk around to find it. Was nice and busy on a Sunday afternoon and the staff were really friendly. I'd certainly recommend this excellent little bistro.

I often meet colleagues and friends here for lunch when working in Lochgilphead, food great and staff friendly and efficient. A busy little cafe hidden up a side road.
