It was last summer that our family of 4 dined at this marvelous restaurant. To this day, we still talk about it often. The way they prepared the food was creative and extraordinary. Everything we had was super delicious and nothing ordinary at all. My husband ordered a hamburger and he will continue to say to whomever will listen that... More

This little gem of a cafe is just off the main road to Gairloch, towards Torridon, and is a delight! It's just how you want a tearoom/ cafe to be - freshly cooked food, wonderful cakes, real teapots, comfy sofas, Woodburner and a very welcoming owner. Staff excellent. You will want to return for sure.

The Scottish "mist" had been beautifully relentless when we undertook this scenic route between Inverness and Skye. On the advise in a travel forum in Tripadvisor, we timed our trip to stop here for a cuppa and some hot food - and what a wonderful decision that was. A very welcoming greeting, wood fire going, hot hot chocolate and fresh... More

Arriving here at 8:45am on a long, long bike trip, I was welcomed in while they were setting up to open. Bearing in mind that I'd just slept in a bivi bag and had been on the go for several days, I thought this was extremely hospitable of my hosts. I was at the stage where anything would suffice for...

This is a place you must visit if you're in or passing through Kinlochewe. A lot of places in this part of the world serve good food, so it's difficult to find one that stands out. Quirky little place, but the food is outstanding and served by very friendly staff. Don't miss it.

Having enjoyed the food on our week at Kinlochewe last year, we paid a couple of return visits for evening meals. Liz has maintained the standard and two great meals were had.

I recently ate here with my two brothers and we enjoyed it so much we visited it twice in our short trip travelling around Wester Ross. The staff were nice to talk to and attentive. I had a lovely smoked salmon dish with scrambled eggs and fried mushrooms. The salmon was locally sourced(Loch Ewe). I also had scallops there which... More

We love love love this place. The food is amazing and the breakfasts are to die for. The owner is a larger than life character who is hugely entertaining and extremely welcoming. There is no fear that whatever you order will be made to perfection. This is a place where everyone is welcome and as such hosts an eclectic array... More
