We had a nice lunch at the Gigha Hotel Bistro. Tey had a good selection of food on the menu and tap beers.

I first was in Gigha two years ago, i.e. in 2014, and came back this November, this time with a partner. I did not stay at the hotel this time round and therefore can only give my view on how the restaurant has evolved since then. From what I understand, the hotel has passed into private hands (it was community-owned... More

.We were fortunate enough to dine at the Gigha hotel when the chef from the Boathouse was doing a visiting stint at the hotel. We dined with a local who was a relative of ours which made the meal even more special. The steak with fries was recommended and it did not disappoint. This ranked with some of the best... More

Embarrassing! Cold reception both temperature and staff personality. One of our drinks had a fly in it - no apology, not even an offer to replace it - just took the glass away with half a can of irn bru in it and brought a clean glass with (hopefully) fresh ice in it! The eastern european waiter never smiled once... More

On a day trip over to Gigha we tried this place for lunch and lived to regret it! The bar area was unwelcoming and no-one else was in - myabe that should have been a clue to leave! Very limited menu for lunch with basic pub fare, totally lacking in any fresh food from the area. I ordered the fish... More

Reception gave poor initial impression. Room and en suite bathroom spacious (although our room appeared not to be typical). The heater in room was essential to dry wet clothes after walk in rain. Live music in restaurant (but we did not eat there). Breakfast was self service but adequate. A kipper, cooked to order, was excellent. The hotel bar, open... More

We stopped for lunch here whilst visiting the island. We sat for 10 mins waiting on service. The barman seemed harassed when he showed up and he said he was on by himself grumpily, when he came to take our order for food. Fair enough, but a simple note at the counter would have sufficed to let us know to... More

Unfortunately, the excellent and reliable Boathouse Restaurant on Gigha is closed on Wednesdays so we booked here. We had Hamburger - dry and tasteless, Halibut Goujons - really a fish finger on spagetti (it certainly wasn't pan fried) - dry and tasteless for £22!! but worst of all was the Mushroom Risotto which I am pretty sure gave me D's...

A total incorrect review, please note we work closely with the Boathouse. We open 365 We have not Halibut Goujons on the menu for sometime now and we have never sold Halibut on spaghetti nor have we sold Halibut Goujons for £22 So please if you are to give reviews please ensure you get the fact correct. We have never... More

It's a lovely island but apart from the Gardens there's nothing else to do 'inside', plenty of walks and shoreline scrambling though.So that makes the Hotel even more vital, and it certainly does not disappoint. Great place, lovely people and excellent food and drink. Why go outside at all?.

We ate here one evening during a 2 night stay on Islay in May. Having enquired earlier in the day about whether it was necessary to book, we were told they would prefer if we did, and we booked for 7.30pm in the Bistro (the other option being the restaurant). We arrived promptly and ordered quickly - halibut goujons with... More
