Samphire Seafood Restaurant


Mid Argyll, Argyll & Bute
15/11/2018: We stayed in Inveraray for our 25th wedding anniversary. I wanted to celebrate with a special dinner, after researching the local restaurant I choose Samphire. From the warm friendly welcome to the fantastic food; if want to sample the fabulous sea food then this is a must. The restaurant is cosy, the seating capacity is low, but I do think this means the Chef can focus on the fantastically brilliant food. We did see people turning up with bookings begin turned away. Make sure you book up to avoid disappointment. Try the deconstructed Apple Pie.
14/11/2018: If you've read my review of the nearby Inveraray Hotel, you'll know that we stayed in the town for 2 nights in early October, 2018 to celebrate our 45th wedding anniversary. As I said in that review, dining at the Inveraray Hotel was a noisy affair at the weekend, so one night we escaped to the amazing Samphire restaurant, only 200 yards away.

The Boathouse Cafe Bar


Kintyre and the Islands, Argyll & Bute, 20-30£
30/09/2018: Im letzten Jahr haben wir bei einem Aufenthalt auf Gigha das Boathouse entdeckt und waren vom tollen Essen sofort überzeugt. Die Rückkehr dieses Jahr war selbstverständlich - leider nur drei Mal, aber irgendwann ist der Urlaub eben aus.
25/09/2018: This is a fabulous restaurant with friendly helpful staff and a lovely ambience which serves the freshest seafood in a beautifully presented manner. Can’t recommend this restaurant highly enough - a must visit place! It is seasonal so check opening times and popular so advisable to book it.

Annaya's Grillhouse


Helensburgh Central, Argyll & Bute
03/11/2018: Took 2 hours to arrive and when we called up to ask for the order the man on the phone was extremely rude and telling us that me along with my pals were lying and saying that we were wrong and wasn't ready to admit the fact that they were in the wrong worst experience I've ever had with a restaurant, ignoring the fact that we were paying about £50 for a take out no not recommend extremely unexpected and unexceptable
15/10/2018: I first came across Annaya’s when friends took us for dinner there in 2017. In turn we took other friends there as we were so impressed by the food and the staff. Thus on our return to Scotland this year it was at the top of my list for a revisit and within a week my wife and I had been there twice for dinner. The food is very authentic and oh so tasty. There is a blackboard with specials, which I think changes on a weekly, or so basis. The delight of the evening is to ask Rocky, one of the Managers, to describe what is on the dish. Now when I say that Rocky waxes lyrical describing the dishes I am in no way exaggerating. He verbally ‘cooks’ the dish at your table with his description of every spice, vegetable and protein that goes into the dish. How it is all bought together and cooked for hours on end to get the depth of flavor, which is fabulous. I had the Rajasthani Lamb which was to die for although I think that I would prefer it off of the bone. My wife had the ‘Trucker’s boti, which was an awesome lentil based dish with a rich, thick tomatoey gravy and boneless lamb. It was called the Trucker’s boti because it was a dish that Rocky came across at a trucker’s stop somewhere in Pakistan. Having enjoyed it so much he persuaded the chef to give him a copy of the recipe. Our friends thoroughly enjoyed a ‘Railway, boti with chicken. According to Rocky this is the dish that is served in first class on Indian railways.

Poppies Garden Centre & Tea Room


Oban North and Lorn, Argyll & Bute, <20£
29/11/2018: My 18 year old son has Autism, Aspergers, Non Organic Delay and Epilepsy. He is 6ft2 and is obsessed with Christmas. He truly believes he is an elf and often, to the terror of small children, dresses as such. Sadly! last year he was demotted, by the big man Santa, (his words, not mine), for not making any toys. He became a cookie elf. lol The owners of Poppies really understand my son's needs and their commitment to the community. I was stunned when they offered to close Poppies and allow my son to private shop, in the company of a naughty elf. I had a coffee and lush scone with a larger than life elf, whilst my son was taken in hand and supported to make all his christmas purchases. All of his purchases were individually wrapped and bagged. The shop is sooooo christmasy that he honestly believed he was in lapland. There were so very many choices to meet anyone's needs and wants. The gifts available will bring smiles to the old and young alike. A HUGE thank you to the team.
15/11/2018: For years we've been visiting Oban and driving past Poppies thinking it was just a garden centre - it is not! We now call in every time on our way up from Durham because it serves really decent coffee and wonderful cakes and pastries. It's easy to park, and the loch side views from the car park are magnificent. The retail shop is full of quirky, beautiful things and the staff are friendly, happy people. Oh, and BTW, they also sell plants and stuff like that.

Oban Chocolate Company


Oban North and Lorn, Argyll & Bute
03/12/2018: Okay, so based on the food, it was absolutely a 5 star! It was delicious! We all enjoyed it, especially the children. However, the service was pretty poor, all young girls on who looked like they’d rather be anywhere but there. No welcome no nothing. When ordering I walked up to the till and the young lady looked at me as if I had horns coming from my head when I expected more of “hello, what can I get you?” You’ve got the chocolate to a fine art, now it would be nice if customer service was them same :).
02/12/2018: It was one of those cold, wind lashed November days, nearly dark and when I turned onto the Esplanade this place was like a haven. It was full of families and others, with bright decorations and a huge range of hand made chocolates. The coffee bar is excellent and served really good coffee, as well as a few ‘signature’ hot chocolates and cakes. Oban has constantly surprised me during this visit as there so many places that have strived to be above the norm and succeeded.

Starfish Restaurant


Kintyre and the Islands, Argyll & Bute
29/10/2018: Sadly, this wonderful restaurant has just closed for the winter and will re-open in March, but if you're in beautiful Tarbert when it's open, book a table immediately! I was there on its last night before it closed and it was completely sold out. It not only has a printed menu, but also a daily specials board. The staff are cheerful and helpful, and advise the unwary on how to tackle langoustines or lobster. A lovely atmosphere and great food.
28/10/2018: Both myself and my wife chose off of the specials board, we had the Trio of fish... Halibut, Salmon, and Sea Bass.

Coast Restaurant


Oban North and Lorn, Argyll & Bute
03/12/2018: We had searched for restaurants on TripAdvisor before our trip to Oban and came across coast. We were really glad we booked a table as we were not disappointed. We enjoyed an amazing three course meal, each course was delicious and such good value too. Friendly and attentive staff, nice bottle of malbec and most importantly, great food. Would defiinitely recommend.
24/11/2018: This is the left bank. No really. Not like Paris. But a converted financial institution.

The Old Kiln Cafe


Kintyre and the Islands, Argyll & Bute
17/11/2018: I was there before my Ardbeg tour and the cafe, though a little pricey, was definitely worthwhile! It was served with a dram of uigeadail.
01/11/2018: We so enjoyed our visit to the cafe. There was such a buzz inside with all sorts of people in the cafe. The service was very quick and efficient despite it being busy. We had sandwiches and a Pannini for lunch along with coffee's. Prices were very reasonable and food/coffee excellent.

Muneroy


South Kintyre, Argyll & Bute, <20£
10/10/2018: This is a tearoom of absolute excellence. Home from home,traditional and sweets and cakes to die for. The various flavour meringues are a sight and taste to behold. The experience is enhanced by the wonderfully friendly and attentive staff. This is a must to make a special journey to enjoy this special experience. The meals are also exceptional.
26/09/2018: Nearly drove past as its the shop too, but we had lunch were stuffed but eyed up the cakes, meringues. We took the second beach for dog walk returned about hour later for cake. We were not disappointed this is a lovely local family run old fashioned business the type so hard to find. I had also found it hard to find Scottish gifts and fortunately a small amount if genuine Scottish made gifts were on sale. It was well worth the drive we also saw seals. Thank you this made our day.

Am Birlinn


Oban South and the Isles, Argyll & Bute, >100£
17/10/2018: I'd fish & Seafood Stew starter which was wonderful, then sea bream which was average. The meal was expensive and the ambience not great - but it was mid-afternoon so maybe at busy times it would feel less like a gallery. It's in a delightful, forested location - we probably would return given the chance!
12/10/2018: We ate here on our first night on the Isle of Mull and were delighted by the food, so immediately booked to come back the next night! In fact we ate here 4 times during our visit to the island so were gradually able to work our way through most of the menu! Excellent salmon mousse starter (10/10), absolutely fantastic venison stew with soft, light gnocchi and perfect veg, fish great especially fish and chips - light batter, excellent chips (always a good sign) and for a change superb, tasty vegetarian choices. I know they are closing down for the winter but I have no doubt that the food will be just as good when they open again next season - visit if you get the chance
