Out of a 3 night stay we chose to book Cornerstone for dinner on 2 nights ,before we arrived. We were not disappointed , the meals were superb. We had the freshest shell fish, straight from Mallaig harbour, mussels, crab and langoustines ,the wine, the...desert were all amazing. The staff created a warm ,friendly atmosphere, giving us the impression their goal was to ensure our enjoyment, as though we were eating in their own home. A memorable experienceMore

Excellent food. Beautifully presented. Would recommend the Halibut and the wild Mallard. Very attentive staff. View over Malaig very pretty from the picture windows. Loved their choice of background music.

We stopped in here for lunch before boarding the Jacobite Train. The staff was very friendly. They asked us when our train was leaving and promised to get us out in time, which they did. We had a table near the window, so we had...a nice view of the town below and water. We ordered the fish and chips and the buttermilk fried chicken sandwich. Food was very good, especially the fish and chips. I would recommend this restaurant.More

My family and I visited the Cornerstone while waiting for a ferry in Mallaig. We arrived at the very end of their regular lunch service, but the staff kindly seated us anyway. All members of our party ordered fish and chips (I know, we're boring)...which was delicious and served in very large portions. The staff were kind and very attentive, the atmosphere is cozy and the view of the harbor is pretty special, certainly befitting a seafood restaurant. I got the impression that the Cornerstone is a very authentic local restaurant, it's a peaceful place to slow down and enjoy some seafood, I can't recommend it highly enough.More

One of the best meals we've had in our travels across Scotland. The ingredients were fresh and the preparation light-handed and wonderful. Highly recommend the battered fish and chips and the Cullen Skink, but frankly ever bite was delicious. Lovely view of the busy harbor....What a treat to find a spot like this in tiny Mallaig.More

A lovely evening. The rainbow trout starter was stunning, such a good mix of flavours and textures. The mussels were a huge hit. And as for the desserts… A very talented young chef. Service was also excellent. The chef’s mum was one of our waitresses...and she was lovely and lots of fun. Highly recommend.More

My husband and I were lucky enough to be squeezed in.at short notice and the experience exceeded our expectations! The staff were charming and helpful, the ambience was most pleasant and the food was of very high quality! Everything we ordered was full of flavour...and cooked to perfection and the buttery, melt-in-the-mouth shortbread served with our dessert was sublime! Definitely worth a visit.More
