CAFÉ FISH – “Seafood Nirvana”
To make an evening reservation, please ring the cafe (01688 301253) during opening hours:- 10am to 11.30pm. Kindly avoid busy service hours (12.30 -2.30 and 7pm to 9pm) as we may be too busy attending to customers to answer the phone.
Café Fish first opened it doors back in 2004. It’s a family concern owned and managed by cousins Jane McDonald and award winning chef Liz McGougan. Fast forward to 2014 and this small inauspicious venue is gaining nationwide recognition as one of the best and most exciting places to eat in Scotland.
With a superb location on the upper floor of the Calmac building on Tobermory pier offering stunning sea views - from the alfresco terrace you can catch an amazing sunset and watch a selection of fresh seafood en route from the rugged coastal waters around Mull straight to your plate two hours later – there is quite simply no better place to enjoy your locally caught seafood.
Their own fishing boat, The Highlander, lands lobster, langoustines and squat lobsters every afternoon, and local fisherman supplement this with whatever treasures the sea throws up, making for a packed menu and bursting specials board to suit all. Their fish and shellfish can be served either simply seasoned and grilled with a lemon wedge or more adventurously in one of Café Fish’s inspired seafood creations. In addition you will find innovative vegetarian dishes, local corn-fed chicken and prime Aberdeen Angus steak, with homemade granary bread, desserts and scones adding to the charm of the small, family run restaurant . Your expectations won’t simply be met, they will be exceeded.
Café Fish offers more of a seafood experience than simply a meal – you are encouraged to pick up the shellfish and eat with your fingers. The vibe is intimate and deliberately informal, so DON’T expect frills or finesse, it’s unpretentious with plenty of atmosphere, fabulous friendly service and outstandingly fresh fish packed with flavours which speak for themselves.
It’s no wonder Café Fish were named UK Fish Restaurant of the Year by the Good Food Guide are in this year’s prestigious Sunday Telegraph list of the 300 Best Restaurants to eat in the UK
