The village of Arisaig on Scotland’s West Coast is beautiful but it would be even more attractive if we could do something about the often wet weather.
Fortunately, the Arisaig Bar and Restaurant in Merchant Square has the answer.
The popular restaurant serves beautiful Scottish food in the atmospheric, covered courtyard of Merchant Square.
As one happy 5pm reviewer puts it, ‘Feels like outside, inside!’
2 course meal for 2
Whether you choose to eat on the cobbled terrace or in the Arisaig restaurant itself, you are in for a delicious taste of Scotland.
Today’s Big Deal is for two people to enjoy a starter and main course from a set menu at Arisaig.
A 175ml glass of wine for each diner is included in the deal.
Great Scottish produce
Scotland’s larder is the envy of Europe’s finest kitchens but you can taste the best Scottish produce on Arisaig’s set menu.
With five starters and five main courses to choose from there is plenty of choice to linger over.
From the starters, we particularly like the sound of the fishcakes with a sweet chilli and lime dip; the haggis fritters with onion gravy or the chicken and bacon terrine which is served with pickled vegetables and crusty bread.
From the main courses, we are torn between the crispy duck breast served with chilli red cabbage and the seared salmon which comes with pea puree, spring veg and new potatoes.
The Arisaig has attracted a fair number of glowing reviews from the press. The Scotsman reckons that the restaurant delivers ‘high quality Scottish food with a twist’ while The Herald enjoyed ‘a seafood feast to fall for, hook, line and sinker’.
