About Cattle & Creel

Cattle & Creel Steakhouse and Seafood Bar is fast becoming the reason to visit Helensburgh.
Newly opened on the seafront after a £500,000 investment, Cattle & Creel is a New England style Restaurant showcasing the best of all that's Scotland's natural larder has to offer.
Enjoy our  daily lunch and pre-theatre menu from £8.95 along with excellent service and stunning views across the Clyde to Rosneath Peninsula.
There are also cosy booths and a marble bar featuring seafood on ice where you can enjoy a glass of wine and some freshly chucked oysters while you watch your meal cooked in the open plan kitchen.
The menu includes Tarbert-landed langoustines, Isle of Mull kind scallops and grass-fed Black Aberdeen Angus and Limousine beef.
This is the latest venture by restauranteurs Cara and Milan Nikolic who also have the multi-award winning La Barca Spanish Tapas Restaurant in the town.

Pudding was ruined by being black burnt (brownie) so all I could taste was charcoal - very disappointing end to an ok meal.

We were so pleased to be able to return to Cattle and Creel after the lockdown period - and the food and service were as amazing as ever. Fabulous mussels to start then stunning roast beef for lunch (it was a Sunday) and all with appropriate but unintrusive COVID-safety measures in place. A perfect Sunday lunch in a scenic location - can’t wait to go back again!

Slightly surprised that another table was seated right next to us when that wasn’t necessary. It was a quiet lunchtime.

Was my 60th birthday and my husband and I had a lovely meal we have been a few times before so will be back. The measures in place made us feel safe we sat at window and were very relaxed staff friendly but not in your face highly recommend it.

First time trying and taking advantage of the eat out discount. Unfortunately as a seafood lover the mussels were very very poor. Some of them the smallest I've ever seen. Think would be better to have less mussels with better quality than lots of small insignificant ones. End up leaving half uneaten. The burgers were fine and the half lobster was also just OK but again very puny. I know this feedback isn't nice but if I were paying full price I wouldn't be happy with your seafood supplier. Maybe the quality is better on weekends. However it has put me off trying again where I to pay full price. Apologies but better quality seafood elsewhere

Disappointing there was no focaccia as this was advertised on Facebook on Sunday AND yesterday afternoon. The white bread replacement was not very fresh and could have done with warming. The rest of the meal was delicious and the staff were their usual charming happy selves.

The restaurant is really nice and the staff we're great during our visit. The presentation of the food is good, however the value for money is quite poor. The scallops starter is overpriced for two scallops and a haggis bonbon, other good restaurants in the region are service six for a lower price. We both had steaks, and there was inconsistency as mine was pretty good but my partner's was not at the same level. The basics like the fries should be better, and the upgrade to truffle oil chips was disappointing with only the faintest hint of truffle oil. Prior to going, we were considering the seafood platter which is incredibly expensive and I think we may have been disappointed should we have done it. It's a real shame, as the reviews would indicate this was an off day. The food was by no means bad, just disappointing given the hype. It was our most expensive meal of the trip, but far from the best I'm afraid. Coincidentally, we had been to the sister restaurant Padrones earlier in the week which was fantastic.
