While visiting the Glencoe area, we found this great little restaurant around the corner from our hotel. The starter scallop plate was unique and delicious with scallops, cauliflower purée, and pomegranate seeds. The price was very reasonable for a starter that can be counted as...More

Dined there whilst staying in Ballachulish area . Very busy and fully booked from early evening. The food was outstanding and well worth the cost. Good menu to cover all tastes. Would fully recommend to all but remember to book to avoid disappointment.

Well Ballachulish really but a mere stones throw from the dramatic surroundings of the Glencoe mountains. This restaurant boasts a Michelin star chef and the food does not disappoint. Beautifully presented with excellent recommendations from knowledgeable staff. The prices do not out-way the quality of...More

Make a reservation - this restaurant is great and books up quickly! Michelin star chef, incredible food and warm atmosphere. Great seafood and dessert was lovely. We ate on the bar side, as all the tables in the restaurant were reserved midweek. Would absolutely recommend.

Hi. It is safer to book if you want to eat in the restaurant, especially at the weekend. We also run the same menu in the bar where you don't need a reservation. The number is 01855811940 if you want to book in advance 😀
