We ate here on a very busy Friday night. The food was quite good. Service was very welcoming and friendly, but the young waiter kept pushing us to order after we explained we wanted to take a few minutes to relax over a glass of wine first. Value for money is good. We would return.

I have visited and stayed in Ullapool for many years but this was my first visit to Arch Inn Restaurant. We were advised to go early in the evening to get a table, and were seated quickly. The food was excellent and service friendly and efficient.

We had a large group of us visit the Arch one night. It's definitely a hot spot so if you can get it, give it a try (we went just after 5 p.m. and were able to get a seat with a view of the water). Our service wasn't the best as our waitress didn't seem to want anything but... More

The Arch restaurant attached to the residential hotel is in a superb location right on the shore of loch broom, so has spectacular views. The restaurant is large and the tables close together and no reservations are possible for non residents. We were there at a very quiet time of year and the restaurant was very quiet but it gets...

A very enjoyable meal - good food, quick, good atmosphere. Thumbs up. The only fault I could find was the dessert wine wasn't really a dessert wine, but if that's all you can criticise it for, then you know you've found a good one!

We have just returned from runnning a weeks photography course whilst based in Ullapool with 10 clients. We ate at The Arch every evening. Great menu choices including fresh locally caught fish and much more. Helpful friendly staff and a great atmosphere. Will definitly return next year. The best place to eat in town!

We didn't book but were lucky enough to get what appeared to be the last available table (at 6.20pm). Very popular place with a decent choice on the menu. Staff attentive although not all particularly friendly. My hubbie & I went for the Beer Battered Haddock. The portion was huge & initially quite tasty although the batter became a bit... More
