We made a reservation the day before, because of scallop choices on the menu. The next evening we journeyed out in the rain. Maillag is a very poorly designed town with no easy/uncrowded parking. I went to claim our reservation while my husband parked, badly...More

Lovely food, great service, nice atmosphere. Worth a visit if you're in Mallaig. I had the seabass which was cooked beautifully and my partner had a Cajun chicken burger which he said was the best he's ever had!
