The Isle of Mull and our neighbouring island of Iona have a rich heritage when it comes to welcoming Scottish hospitality and wonderful dishes made from locally sourced ingredients. Apart from our own restaurant, which we look forward to welcoming you to, here is a small selection of some of our foodie favourites on Mull.
Cafe’ Fish (Tobermory)
The Cafe’ is wonderfully appointed on the upper floor of the Calmac Pier with spectacular views over Tobermory Bay to Calve island and the Sound of Mull. 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.
The Glass Barn (outside of Tobermory)
A truly unique cafe and farm shop, and home to Isle of Mull Cheese and Island Pork, The Glass Barn serves farm-grown, foraged and home-made cafe fare and produces a unique range of bread, chutneys and biscuits. Stop in for lunch and remember to pick up some traditional Isle of Mull Cheese to go with your favourite tipple.
The Café@Calgary Arts (Calgary)
The Café serves teas, coffees, light lunches and delicious home baking. Their produce is fair trade, organic, and locally produced, including homegrown herbs, salads and vegetables when available. The Café also has local produce for sale: Mull Cheeses, Tobermory pork bacon, sausages & black pudding, Tobermory smoked trout, Calgary free range eggs, Island bakery organic biscuits and fresh milk.
Ninth Wave Restaurant (Fionnphort)
Owners John & Carla Lamont invite you to explore the daily changing menu that is sourced from fisherman’s sustainable catches and crofter’s bounty. Lobster, crab, hand-dived scallops and fish are often caught only hours before appearing on your dinner plate. With a focus on seasonal fruits and vegetables, fresh-caught seafood and organic meats from the Island of Mull, Ninth Wave Restaurant is well worth a visit.
