Award-winning seafood restaurant up for sale

Thu, 30 Aug 2018 | BUSINESS SALE

Despite claims from current owners that the business 'couldn’t be better', the award-winning Tobermory seafood restaurant Cafe Fish is currently up for sale at £500,000.

The restaurant is situated on the upper floor of the pier and is located in the original art deco building overlooking the Sound of Mull.

Josh Hill, business agent at Christie & Co handling the sale said: “Cafe Fish presents the perfect opportunity for an owner-operator or chef to take advantage of arguably one of the best restaurants within Scotland’s Inner Hebrides.

“The lease is available until at least 2036 and we expect Cafe Fish will attract a mixture of buyers from first-time entrants to experienced restaurateurs.”

The family-run restaurant first opened in 2006 and acquired the title of Seasonal Restaurant of the Year in 2017 at the Scottish Food Awards.

With a registered fish buyers licence, the restaurant is able to purchase fish produce directly from local fishing boats.

Cousins Jane Gill and Liz McGougan who currently own and operate the restaurant said: “Tobermory is a magical island. The landscape and the warmth of the community get under your skin and it feels very much like home, but time moves on and so have our personal circumstances.

“Jane now has a husband and home in Glasgow, and Liz wants to make her home with her partner in the Caribbean. It’s ironic because business has never been better, but we both feel it’s time to hand the reins over to someone with fire in their belly and the passion and commitment to drive this business on to greater things.”

The indoor dining area of the restaurant can accommodate 38 guests and an additional 50 on the terrace.
