Restaurant has beautiful views of the sea and islands! Everything on the menu sounded amazing but we decided on the langoustines and fishermans platter. You can tell the seafood is fresh, it is delicious! Would highly recommend even if you are not staying at the...More

We had an excellent lunch at the West Highland Hotel, which is only 2 mins from the main street in Mallaig, but it's well worth walking up to visit 'The Terrace'. The service was excellent from a nice young scottish lad who could not have...More

The Terrace Restaurant is part of the West Highland Hotel with great views through its floor to ceiling windows across to Skye, Rum and Eigg. Dinner was a relaxed affair with young, keen international staff. I had the Cullen Skink soup to start and the...More

If you are not already staying at this hotel, it would be well worth the short walk up the hill to enjoy the dinner and views from this restaurant.

After all the seafood we had lately we decided to have some Scottish steak. Best avoided. Both the ribeye and sirloin were tough and lacked flavour. The cheese board consisted of four cheese including a Scottish Brie which shouldn't have been served because it wasn't...More

We started off having a drink outside on the terrace, with views across to the islands as it sits uphill from most of the other surrounding buildings. The dining room is glass so the views continue when you move inside. We went here on the...More

I don't often write a review but on this stunning sunny evening we had a drink on the terrace followed by a 3 course dinner. The salad, the mussels and the local cheese selection were excellent. Super fresh and the restaurant had a nice "vibe"...More

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.
