Enjoy waterfront dining in the Marina Restaurant and Bar. With award-winning cuisine and panoramic views of Loch Fyne, this is one of the top places to eat in Argyll. Linger over lunch or dinner and watch the yachts sail by.
Floor-to-ceiling glass awaits you, and every table offers a view of the marina and beyond. This is shore-side dining at its best. Sample a wide selection of produce from ’Argyll`s larder’, skilfully prepared by our culinary team and served to you by our passionate and knowledgeable front-of-house staff.
Enjoy al fresco dining on the terrace when weather permits, or wrap up warm and enjoy a hot chocolate as you watch the ever-changing skies roll in over Loch Fyne.

    Very nice restaurant. Good choice of food ranging from fish and chips and burgers to steak or well cooked fish like halibut. Attentive and friendly service.

    Food was good except the haggis bon bons came burnt, they got replaced and looked slightly better, service was slow from 20mins to order food and took 40 mins for food to come to the table there was ourselves and 2 other tables in The poor girl chloe was trying to do drinks orders, serving table and was very attentive There was a gentleman think his name Ryan? Who just wondered about talking to bar tender in and out of the kitchen but never brought anything out the kitchen with him and checking his phone and very rarely helped the poor girl You'd say

    Food was good - cocktails expensive. Noise level was very high - the acoustics of the room made it just made the background noise so loud and there wasn’t any music as far as we could hear.

    Dining at the Marina bar was a lovely experience. The food was delicious with an excellent menu offering a variety of choices for budget and taste. Personally I had the shoulder of lamb which was cooked to perfection and thoughtfully presented. My partner had the scallops to star which were also a huge hit! Adding to the meal itself the bar menu was extensive and the waiting staff were attentive and professional. I would highly recommend dining at the Marina Restaurant and Bar.

    Food was fine. Would be cautious eating here if you have an allergy. We are vegan and despite telling practically every staff member this, we were continuously served items with dairy. A bit annoying but could be a lot worse for someone with an allergy. You can’t tip the staff using card because the hotel won’t pay for this facility on the card machines. In their world everyone is still using cash. I haven’t been to a cash machine since Jan 2020. I’m not alone. Consider how much money the staff are losing by not having access to tips. It’s a shame because there are some good waiters. Wouldn’t warn you off going but considering it’s location, you are only here because you are staying at the resort and there are no other choices. Please remember to stop at a cash machine on the way there, but I’m sure you do that frequently anyway …

    Waiting service excellent. Lovely people serving. Menu very disappointing in comparison to what is on offer in Tarbert. Having made a journey specifically to go there, the menu was a real let-down. For a supposedly top class Marina restaurant, there was a distinct lack of seafood options. Having said this, the food was good., but menu REALLY needs to be improved to make the journey worthwhile. p.s. What other restaurant serves langoustine and chips?

    Amazing setting and great breakfast included with accommodation. Unfortunately current covid restrictions (which I’m pretty sure are self-imposed rather than required) detract from what it could be. Having only one person serving at the buffet means queues and a long wait, often while other food and drink on the table gets cold. Also some inconsistencies over what’s included in the price (E.g. kids wanted hot chocolate rather than coffee, apparently extra). But a good start to the day in the best location!
