This place is beautiful inside, very friendly staff, and awesome views. Our service was really first class and the food was really delicious. Some more local options would have been great. A lot of goujon, burger and pizza options, not what you'd expect from a...seaside village restaurant. I was disappointed with my special. It looked like someone had chucked savers pasta in a cereal bowl and put tomato sauce on it. It didn't feel very special. Some side salad or even just a bit more would have been great.More

Shared the Fisherman’s Platter - smoked salmon, pickled herring and grilled and seasoned hake - plenty for two travelers. A pleasant dark cask ales topped things off nicely

Lovely lunch, coffee and cake between train and ferry. Great view of the water and lovely service. They put my suitcase out of the way.

Having arrived in Mallaig late afternoon and checked into The Moorings (highly recommended) we searched for a place to eat having not booked anywhere in advance. A number of places were full and some a bit noisy and eventually found the West Highland Hotel and...The Terrace Restaurant. Great service from all of the staff and stunning views.

We was on the Jacobite train trip for the day and we had a 2 hour break/lunch in Mallaig. The weather was really wet and windy. We tried places for food as we were very hungry and very wet but everywhere was full to the...brim. We reached The terrace, asked if they had a table and they luckily did. The staff were very nice and polite . The food was delicious. The place was fantastic with amazing views. I think we definitely saved the best till last! Thank you to all the staff at the terrace.More

Extremely disappointing. We ordered a seafood platter and a meat mezze platter.Service was very poor. We had to wait at least half an hour for our (cold) food to arrive and had to go in hunt to find someone to bring us the water we'd...ordered alongside our wine. When the food arrived, the roasted figs which were part of the menu were non-existent. We also had to hunt for the minute crumbs of blue cheese which were included in the menu. Some of the salad was yellow, soggy and inedible. When we pointed this all out to our waiter, he said that as we had eaten the meal, we would still be charged the full amount. After remonstrating further (politely!) he agreed to consult "the msnager". No apology was received from the manager, who didn't appear, although we were offered a discount of the price of one glaas of wine. Frankly, we weren't prepared to pursue things further and accepted this somewhat stingy offer. Needless to say, we won't be paying a return visit. There are plenty of other places to eat in Mallaig which offer a much better eating experience.More

This restaurant is in a lovely location. We had some seafood which was disappointing especially considering the location, a bottle of uninspiring wine, and the service was somewhere between casual and indifferent. Would go again for a coffee, but would find somewhere else to eat.

Myself and my girlfriend were staying in Mallaig and arrived late and were turned away from another rest as it was 20:00 we saw the lights on up at the Terrace so thought we would try it out. upon arrival I could tell that we...were just in time to make the cut off. The head waiter said they could accommodate and we were shown to our seats. The place was very nice, elegantly set up with great music selection. The staff were very attentive and friendly and were very helpful in choosing the right dish for pregnant GF. Julie was absolutely lovely and explained it was their first night opening again after a devastating arson attack shut them down. The food was very good, I had Cullen skink to start which was lovely as was the bread it was served with. My GF had deconstructed chicken cesar salad which was also lovely and an interesting interpretation of the dish. We both had braised beef with sautéed sprouts and truffle mash which was very nice. We also had a complimentary glass of Prosecco and a passion fruit sorbet as a pallet cleanser. Overall we loved our experience and the chef even popped out to make sure we were happy, he is clearly very capable and long may it continue! All the best guys, you deserve good fortune!More

Starters were fine, wine wasn't worth the price, mussels were all undercooked, service wasn't incredible. Non-mussel mains were pretty good, and the view was nice enough if you ignored the noise of the chairs against the floor.

We pre booked far ahead of visiting the restaurant as we were also staying in the hotel and we were glad we did. The food is excellent and well worth trying out if you’re in Mallaig. We started with small nachos and Cullen Skink which...were both lovely starters. The nachos are a healthy portion and the soup is full and wholesome. Main meals were fish and chips and the pie of the day which was chicken and haggis on this occasion. The fish and chips is a big portion if you’re hungry. Sometimes only fish and chips will do! The pie was also a good meal to have if you’re hungry. It is also a PROPER pie with big chunks of creamy chicken completely filling the pastry encased filling. It’s NOT one of those cheats pies with a pastry lid. Service was very good and friendly too.More

We arrived with the steam train from Glenfinnan. We booked this restaurant the day before, we were expecting lovely food. On arrival we thought this looks promising, the views were lovely. We both looked at the menu and to be told Langoustine and fish stew...were off the menu were disappointing. We had no choice but to order Haddock and chips both with breadcrumbs. When they both came out they looked so nice. How disappointed were we, nothing on the plate tasted of anything mushy peas had a slight taste but the fish didn't taste of any thing . If only i had gone on trip adviser first before ordering because i could see there are reviews mentioning how bland the food is. I told the waiter that i couldn't taste it i asked whether it was fresh or frozen , he said it is fresh. I find it hard to believe, fresh fish you can taste. They need to up their game because so many people come to Malaig hoping for decent food. Be aware looks can be deceiving The only consolation was the young waiter who seemed happy but the older guy nothing , so i really don't rate the service either.More

We ate here twice during our stay. Compared to other restaurants in the town it is expensive, and the food was no better. The seafood platter contains less variety of fish than other restaurants, and is higher priced. The real downer is the pre dinner...service in the bar which is disorganised and poorly run. Getting a drink took 25 minutes one night. Once seated service is a little slow, but ok. However, it lacks the attentiveness of places like the Chlachain Inn or the Steam Inn, which both have better atmospheres, service and food, for less.More
