This restaurant does have access for people with mobility issues but be sure to let them know. You need to book ahead for this restaurant. Very clean with friendly and helpful staff. The table have individual heaters which were really welcome. The service was good...and efficient despite the volume of customers and the the staff took time with customers to make us feel welcome. The food was excellent and plenty off it! I would definitely recommend the Cullen Skink and the Cranachan. The freshness of all the ingredients makes all the difference. Definitely going back there!More

We booked several days in advance (which was advisable) and had a lovely meal in tastefully decorated surroundings. The service was quick and friendly and the food and choice of drinks excellent. The Cullen Skink was particularly good. The B&B owner said this is the...restaurant he recommends to his guests; we were just lucky to have booked it beforehand!More

Delicious food, lovely atmosphere and location. Staff were friendly and the service was great. We managed to get a table with a good view of the TV for the euros quarter-final. Reasonably priced as well.

Excellent food, the menu is limited but you get excellent food. Nice atmosphere and good staff who are helpful but not overly so.

We ate in the Arch Restaurant last night although we managed to get into the bar (unreserved seating) earlier in the week. Currently all indoor and outdoor areas except the bar require booking. We enjoyed a range of food - the black pudding Scotch egg...was possibly the favourite food of the week! The atmosphere was friendly and staff were very engaging. One small thing that could be improved - on entering nobody acknowledges you for a while as they’re busy at the bar or serving, possibly with several members of staff walking past before someone engages. Even an acknowledgment of ‘we’ll be with you in a moment’ would go a long way.More

Just ate here as we were staying elsewhere. Comfortable, spacious dining room with some screening off of tables. Harbour side, but small windows at one end only, so no real views. Spaced-out tables don’t particularly help create a good atmosphere. Didn’t really get to see...the bar area, maybe this would have been a bit more vibrant? Helpful, pleasant staff. Cod in a smoked shellfish broth was good, as was the haddock and chips. Best Cranachan we had in 2 weeks in Scotland!More

We stopped off here for lunch whilst travelling the NC500 route through Ullapool. We sat on the covered terrace so we could enjoy the nice weather out the way of the wind on the front. The staff were friendly and couldn’t do enough to help,...always around if you needed to catch their attention to get another drink/the bill/etc. Gutted to find out there was no lobster, so me and my partner settled on the cod loin instead, the portion wasn’t massive but was very tasty. For dessert, I had the cheese board, good selection of cheeses with a nice chutney and a few apple slices, my partner had the cheesecake which was okay.More

Lovely restaurant set right on the shore. Food was delicious, the restaurant had a good atmosphere and I enjoyed the choice of craft ales. Service was first class and a special mention for Anna who helped us out with an issue with our tickets for...the ferry, even though this had nothing to do with the restaurant.More

Whilst staying the night in Ullapool I booked the Arch restaurant for dinner, outside dining was all that was available but it was fine they have a raised decking area in the court yard with picnic tables and overhead heaters. The menu is varied and...interesting, I had Cullen Skink which was absolutely delicious and the prices were very reasonable. The service was quick and efficient and I would definitely recommend it.More

Four of us had a great night. Middle of the road prices. Varied menu. Lovely salmon dish but side salad was a rip off at £3.50 for a few bits of lettuce.....nothing else, just lettuce. 30p worth from Morrison’s.

I went with dogs and sat outside but they make you pay upfront for the food. We got hair in the fish and got told we were lying about it and no discount for having to leave half the meal. If I didn’t pay up front I would... More
