    I ordered I Filet-Steak medium, I got a piece well done and very dry. This was a very disapointing experiance to a high price. As we wanted to speak with the chief he said: „That‘s the way we cook here!‘ This is a no go in a restaurant! Never again Harberview Grille in Campbeltown!!!

    Found the staff very friendly, had a nice quiet table for four, food came quite quick, were asked if every thing was ok and if we wanted anything else. Only criticism about the table service was that our second course arrived before the waitress had taken all the finished plates away, just a small training issue there. Our big concern was that there was no soap in the gents toilets and a very small watered down amount in the ladies. We did enjoy our meal and will be back.

    Terrible service. Even though we had booked, we were treated really poorly and it took ages to take our order. The food was fine, but after we had finished our meals the plates weren't cleared for 45 minutes and we got up to leave. We would have had desserts and coffee but noone came to the table. They staff were invisible most of the time and never checked on us. When I paid I complained and asked to see the manager but the girl just said she would give me a discount and we left. The staff said they were really busy but that is no concern of ours. We had 2 elderly people in their 90s with us and we were ignored. Frankly I should have refused to pay anything as the experience was so poor. We have recently moved to the area but will not be returning to this restaurant and will advise our visitors to avoid at all cost.

    Food was nice but not exceptional. Service was good although got a bit slow towards the end, strangely when the place got quieter, and I had to go out of my way to get the bill and then pay. Prices were a bit steep for what was being served, e.g. £9 for a bog-standard sticky toffee pudding. Not a lot of competition though in Campbeltown.

    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.

    We had a fabulous meal at the Harbour View Grill in the Royal Hotel. We had a warm welcome, the staff were attentive and the food was first class. I have dietary needs and the staff were knowledgeable and enquired with the chef to confirm that the meal was appropriate for me. Highly recommended

    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 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.
