On a very busy day in Mallaig as we had travelled from Glenfinnan on the Steam hauled Jacobite Train. We arrived at Mallaig & my main interests were to look round the Harbour, food at Lunch time, purchasing a Daily Newspaper & a Beer. Successful on all counts, but the Lunch of Haddock, Chips & Salad was superb with a... More

My sister and I were taking a day trip to Mallaig when we were in Scotland, and being on the coast, we thought there would be a good restaurant. We were not disappointed. On the day we were there, the special was a Monkfish Curry that was superior! We both loved it. The curry was not too spicy, and it... More

After the late arrival of the train we only had a short time to get a meal before the return journey. When we were served we were assured we would get our meals in order to catch the return train. They made an effort and catered for gluten free requirements of one of our party. The food was delicious, the... More

We ordered two fish and chips and had them on a bench by the harbour. It was fine as it usually is at Mallaig's places.

Stopped for lunch. Clean and bright, friendly service. Surprised that only filter coffee was on offer and my wife's hot chocolate appeared to have been made with just hot water. Friend's burger was uninspiring. I chose the fish chowder which, although there was nothing wrong with it, did not deserve the £10+ price tag. Personally I think this place would... More

I find this a bit strange, if the fish was so disgusting why not bring it back, also takes 5 month for you to write a ridiculous review, very strange More

We ate here on our stopover after riding ScotRail. Most of the other restaurants were crowded with Jacobite Rail folks. Our food was warm and very good, and the staff were very nice and attentive. We had fish and chips.

We travelled to Mallaig on the Jacobite steam train and had the hour and half or so to eat and have a little look around. The restaurant was simple but food was good.

Paid Harddock for GBP8.50 with some chips. For such a simple deep fried dish, it is very expensive. It came with 2 small packd of salt, a vinegar and lemon cut.

The price of haddock is not cheap, especially at this time of year when haddock is scarce, £8.50 is very good price for haddock & chips and the amount you get, you should maybe have checked the price before buying the meal there is cheaper options, you obviously want haddock & chips for nothing.

The other dishes are much cheaper. I had a Cullen Skink, nice and a good portion. The seafood platter my wife enjoyed was priced like a main dish at a restaurant. It was well worth the GBP17. Plenty of fresh seafood she could barely manage. Very friendly and quick service.
