Came to Mallaig with my wife for a day trip, pre booked lunch at the cornerstone as previous reviews suggested it could be busy when the 'Harry Potter' train arrives in town...glad we did as the lunch we had was sublime!
We both ordered the calamari which was the best we have enjoyed for years, perfectly cooked, tender and delicious, served with a simple side salad & a lovely sweet chilli dip.
Main courses were Thai monk fish curry for me & fish and chips for my wife. All I can say about my curry is it was faultless... Beautifully spiced, plenty of firm meaty monk fish, accompanied by light fluffy rice with toasted cashews...I've never had a better fish curry,(and I'm a chef).
My wife's fish and chips were just as good, beautiful flaky fillet of battered haddock, generous portion of hand cut chips...doesn't come any better.
The staff were friendly, efficient, and service was fast but equally unhurried.
The restaurant was cool, (it was one of the hottest days in years!) and our window table had a lovely view over Mallaig's little inner harbour.
We can't recommended the Cornerstone enough...if you find yourself in Mallaig try it out, you won't be disappointed!
