                                    Good food, however portions are huge! Haggis nachos were a hit.

                                    Nice meal spoiled by being told at 19:15 that the table was required at 20:15 and before our meal had been served. As a result not likely to return. Poor customer service personnel.

                                    Had a lovely family meal here with good choices for all including a child and a vegetarian. The two veggie burger options were great, haggis nachos fab and the salmon salad plentiful. The chips were outstanding! Only slight let down was the pizza which had a bit of a heavy base for our liking. Lovely clean toilets and covid secure with lots of space between tables. Staff efficient and friendly! Would definitely return and recommend to anyone.

                                    Good food overall, service was fine although was made to feel like we had to rush our food which wasn't necessary as although we were told we have 1.5 hours to be there and we were in plenty time, still felt a bit rushed.

                                    Amazing meal out. We went out for a special anniversary meal - shared the haggis nachos (wow!!), lamb shank special, and cheesecake & Eton mess desserts. Cannot fault a single thing, it was the best food we've had in a long time. Will definitely be coming back. Beautiful harbour view, delicious wine and lovely staff too.

                                    Your description of the Harbourview Grille as "a luxurious restaurant" is simply not true . When we visited, the menu was nothing like that described on your site, nor that of the Royal Hotel. It was limited, uninspiring and almost devoid of seafood unless one wanted fish and chips or calamari. Rather than the "atmosphere of relaxed elegance" as in your description, there was no atmosphere nor elegance. The service was perfunctory and the whole experience disappointing.

                                    Portions need trimmed back as the starter was the size of a main meal. Otherwise consider ordering and sharing one starter and main between 2.

                                    Great Place to dine. Food is excellent. The portions are really large. After the starters we were like, do we need mains? Nice place to visit

                                    Nice location with good service . Portions are large and the only complaint would be the food was salty . Haggis nachos were good but enough to feed four . Good service and would return .

                                    Great resturant, really good food. Prawn Coaktail was lovely and the Fillet Steak was cooked to perfection. Great friendly service and Rachel on reception was very helpful. Only slight disappointment for me was the Panna Cotta. And somebody really really needs to do something about the play list. Backstreet - Backstreets back and Another Level - Freak Me on a loop mixed in with a compliation of the worst of the 80's and 90's?? No. Just No. That playlist is completely inconsistent with the entire hotel and resturant. Apart from that we really enjoyed it and will be back!

                                    It was a straightforward menu, but all the cooking was perfect. Crisp chips, a big tasty field mushroom, and best of all a delicious fillet steak, cooked exactly as I like it, for once: very rare/blue. Friendly helpful waitresses.

                                    My daughter's (9) spaghetti Bolognese was very late, apparently the chef only made her just spaghetti! When it came it was HUGE and very spicy and way too much garlic, she couldn't eat it :( main meals were okay but puddings took 25 minutes to arrive. We were 1 out of 2 tables! Panacotta which should be wobbling and light was solid and heavy and far too much cream around it. Kids had meringue icecream sundaes, there was far too much cream again and too sickly. Won't be back

                                    Our visit to the Harbourside Grille renewed our faith in Scottish hospitality after a couple of bad experiences during our weekend away. Enjoyed a couple of drinks in the hotel bar before moving to the restaurant. Received a very warm welcome from the host, Pat, who did a grand job of looking after everyone in the restaurant throughout the evening. Found the menu comprehensive and would happily have chosen quite a few dishes. Having viewed the menu online before we arrived, I'd been looking forward to the Cullen Skink and I wasn't disappointed. Lovely big plate of fresh soup, packed with chunks of smoked haddock. We couldn't resist the haggis nachos as an extra starter to share, which again didn't disappoint. By far the best food and service we'd experienced throughout our weekend break to Kintyre. Don't expect fine dining or an adventurous menu. Portions are generous, so may be worth considering this when ordering. We couldn't finish our main courses, simply because we had filled up with the delicious starters. For well cooked, homely food with good friendly service, you won't go wrong here.

                                    Good, well cooked food made from local ingredients. The duo of smoked salmon and the mussels with spicy tomato sauce were both delicious.
