Informal quality food and refreshments with a spectacular sea view.
The Bistro is open every day 11 a.m. – 9:30 p.m. from mid March to mid October (please call to check exact dates).
The Bistro is a relaxed bar and restaurant opening up onto Asknish Bay. Our speciality is fresh local seafood although meat lovers will also get plenty of choice. We use local, fresh ingredients for our delicious home-made food ensuring your dining experience is just as good as the view! Refreshments, including some fantastic home baking, and drinks are served from morning till night which makes it a great place to stop and have a little something before you explore the grounds or nearby Arduaine Gardens, or have a relaxing drink later of an evening in front of an open fire after a busy day exploring. All visitors welcome. A Selection of Bistro favourites are served in the main restaurant in the evening over winter and soup and sandwiches in the Lounge during the day.
Talking about the view, the Bistro offers truly amazing views out onto Asknish Bay, with Shuna and Jura (in the Inner Hebrides) beyond. When the sun shines, there is nothing better than sitting outside and enjoying the fresh sea air whilst enjoying our gorgeous food.
Perfect for visiting sailors
The Bistro is a great stop-over for sailors throwing anchor in our four private moorings (available from April to October), only a short walk away. There’s plenty of room to store wellies and hang oil-skins! The Bistro even offers showers for the chance to freshen up before food.
The Bistro is able to cater for even the youngest of guests, with a children’s playground outside and our lovely Highland cows to get to know just down the lawn. To keep busy inside, we also have a box of games and toys for the little ones to play with.
The Bistro is open every day 11 a.m. – 9:30 p.m. between mid March and mid October. Over Winter, a Selection of Bistro favourites are served in the main restaurant at night (booking essential), and soup and sandwiches in the lounge 12pm-3pm. The Hotel is completely shut Monday-Wednesday mid November- mid March and three weeks in December and January (open over Christmas and New Year).
Every 1st and 3rd Friday, the Bistro hosts a fantastic music night with local bands and musicians. It’s a great night so join us for some music and drinks from 9:30 p.m. at the bar.
