    The Croft Kitchen: Casual, local and GOOD!

    by shrimp56 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a very casual space with an open kitchen, a small display area for books and a shop for local crafts.
    .
    Appearances are deceiving though -- this was the best food I ate on Islay!

    Favorite Dish: Scallops on a tasty, spicy nest of julienned veggies.

    BOWMORE HOTEL: Local is the word here

    Bowmore Hotel serving it up fresh

    The restaurant here provides quite a varied menu and local foods are given a priority. Oysters come from nearby Loch Gruineart and most of the meat is produced on the island as well. One of the local bus drivers mentioned to me that the Bowmore was a place of choice for him when he and the missus strayed from the home fires for a meal.

    Port Charlotte Hotel Restaurant: Eating well on Islay

    by shrimp56 Written Sep 9, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sheep are raised on Islay for both their meat and their wool. The surrounding waters are also full of salmon, scallops, oysters and other delights. The menu makes the most of this happy location.

    The picture is of the hotel bar.

    Favorite Dish: Anything with lamb, scallops or salmon :)
