A recreation of a Tsarist Russian Tavern complete with piano, games including chess and cards, fine authentic Russian cuisine, seafood freshly landed on the pier outside, local Real Ales poured direct from the casks on the bar, Russian beers, wines and vodkas.
There are four economic guestrooms. The views from the Tavern across the yacht bay to the Argyll hills are truly stunning.
This small family hotel right on the seashore in the middle of the village is run by a Russian family, and the old bar area has been redecorated to resemble a tavern of old Russia with timber tables anhd chairs, fireplace and piano, tapestries flowers candles and Russian dolls, with beer barrels on the bar. Guestrooms are in adjacent fishermen's cottages dating back to 1725 A.D., so the rooms are rather small, but clean cosy and economical.
The engine of this little establishment with a big reputation is the refurbished French kitchen, and the Russian chef. Well known personalities dine amid fishermen and French tourists, visiting yachtsmen share table-talk with Russian dignitaries, and hikers discuss the menu with TV producers. The food and drink are taken very seriously, but the atmosphere is relaxed, light-hearted and great fun.
No place for binge night-outers, kareoke fans or pizza lovers!
