If you are looking for a restaurant which serves great food, including amazing local seafood, and offers exciting wines, specially selected by passionate wine lovers, you will love the Asknish Bay Restaurant at Loch Melfort Hotel.

Add to this seasonal vegetables and aromatic herbs in season and you have true gourmet excellence.
No wonder the Asknish Bay Restaurant's reputation for fine food and friendly, dedicated service is fast growing, making it a favourite with house guests and locals alike - including diners from Glasgow and Edinburgh who appreciate being able to escape the city and find themselves dining in a restaurant with the finest views on the West Coast...

Ratings and Reviews
"On behalf of all our Leadership team I would like to thank you for creating an environment last week which made us all feel so relaxed and welcome. We always try to pick a location which will allow us to get as far removed from our normal operating conditions of sterile hotels and meeting rooms and without doubt your Hotel created a friendly and efficient environment which supported our creative strategic planning. This is our annual get together as a team so it’s also important outside working hours we were all able to relax and have some fun. Throughout the week all the Loch Melfort staff were very professional and pleasant making us feel most welcome and at home. The food and accommodation were excellent and your meeting room without question must have the most impressive and inspiring view of any Board Room in the world. Hope to see you all again sometime soon."
