We dined here three times whilst on holiday in Mull. Always excellent food, locally sourced and beautifully presented. The langoustines were delicious as was everything else. The cranachan comes highly recommended. Good choices of wines to. We look forward to returning.

Staying in the south of the island, visited when doing a loop via Tobermory, Dervaig and Calgary back to Salen. We were glad we went for lunch to be able to drive in daylight as roads on island are in a bad condition after winter...More

My wife and I were staying in Calgary and booked a meal at Am Birlinn one night for dinner. My wife had the hake, while I had the seafood stew. Both dishes were perfectly cooked and were amazing. For dessert we shared the cranachan cheesecake...More
