Reviewed yesterday NEW

A conservatory restaurant, wide menu and good service. Slightly over priced perhaps. The steak was good but the venison was over cooked (despite being described as 'seared').

This restaurant is in the West Highland Hotel, set about 40ft (30m) above the town, above all the other eating places, which are at sea level. As a result it has views to Eigg, Rum and Skye, just not visible at the harbour level. If views are an important part of your dining experience, this is where to go in... More

We had dinner then lunch the following day and very much enjoyed our food. Not cheap but good qualtiy ingredients used. Staff were delightful in the restaurant and very willing to help. Weather was wonderful and you get great views over the bay and can watch the sun going downe from the terrace.

We stayed in the hotel but also had dinner in their restaurant. The lady checking us in told us when sunset was and made sure we were booked so that we had a table next to one of the large windows to watch the sun set over the water- wow! The food was, again, fantastic and made even better by... More

Picked this restaurant as the reviews were all positive and have not been disappointed!!!! Fantastic service by Ronan, great steak and seafood in a beautiful open dining area. Must be a great view of the small isles in the summer. Looking forward to another visit hopefully very soon.

We have been here a few times and the food is amazing. The service is great and the decor/ambience is lovely! The venison is to die for - perfectly cooked and melts in your mouth and there are no words to express how good the sticky toffee pudding is!

Such a gem of a restaurant with stunning views over the sea front towards Skye. Really friendly and helpful staff and incredibly delicious, beautifully presented food. We lounged here for several hours during the winter whilst enjoying the warmth of the log burning stove. If you're in Mallaig and looking for fabulous food with a view, look no further!

Thank 56Helen

Newly opened in 2016 we serve delicious local cuisine in the Terrace, indoor and out. Come and sample some excellent food matched with a extensive selection of wine. There is a choice of almost 300 malt whiskeys and 20 gins, you can enjoy in front of the cozy stove watching one of the best views Scotland has to offer.
