Arrived at 11.30 and looked longingly at the breakfast being finished by the next table. We ordered a panini and club sandwich and were not disappointed. Well presented with lots of extras and lovely salad which was not overdressed. Good coffee too!

For a good lunch at very reasonable price and conveniently situated on the frontage of the harbour area, this is the place to go. Popular place so can get busy.

Food turned up and looked nice, but half of my wife's meal was freezing cold. We mentioned it to the staff member who just 'oh' with no apology. The food came back had clearly been microwaved as the pie had gone all flat and soggy.

My husband and I ate here several times during our long weekend in Tarbert. The restaurant was very comfortable to sit in, with staff who were attentive but also knew when to let you sit and talk (i.e. they did not try to rush you out the door the moment you finished eating). We had baked tatties with smoked salmon... More

We were looking for somewhere in Tarbert for a reasonably quick evening meal and happened to park opposite this cheerful cafe. It was very busy (always a good sign) and turned out to be a nice, warm, welcoming place with extremely good food at competitive prices. Hope to visit again.

Loved Tarbet! Cafe has nice views over harbour. We had coffee and cakes. Waitress wasn't very friendly, maybe an off day.
