Great, fresh food with fantastic service. Really tasty and although no kids menu, they happily made a meal for my daughter which was just as good as our food. They also serve "Happy Chappy" beer and i certainly was!

A fantastic meal was had by the whole family at the Crofter's Bistro. The food was superb and the location on the water's edge is perfect.

First time visit with family. Food very tasty. No kids menu but some of main meals available as half portions so they found something they liked too!

Staying in Rosemarkie for a week, we booked up for an evening meal, and walked past the Restaurant on several other occasions. One of the best recommendations is that is appeared bursting to the rafters every evening. The staff were engaging, and enthusiastic about what they offer. As for the food, it was everything other reviewers have said - excellent.... More

Having discovered Crofters on our last trip to the Inverness area we went back for lunch on our first day back in the area this holiday. The service and food are of the highest standard - the cajun chicken sandwich more than generous with the filling, the bread fantastic and the chips excellent. As with our last visit we booked...

We had a table for 10 family members which included 2 vegetarians and 1 wheat and gluten free. It's unusual for all 10 of us to get something we all fancy to eat and then enjoy! We had 3 courses and drinks and the cuts worked out at £25 per head which I think is just right. The food was... More

We were late in booking our meal here but they were very accommodating in letting us in at short notice, and we appreciated it all the more once we started eating. The menu was extensive and the food very good; service was quick and friendly too. We were really glad they made room for us.

Don't listen to the harsher reviews on here. After reading them, I almost didn't bother going to this restaurant and honestly, if I hadn't I would have missed out. I loved it! At first thought, it can appear a tad pricey but when you see what you're getting for your money, it's completely worth it. The atmosphere combined with the... More

Visited the restaurant without realising it had changed hands since we were last in the area 2 years ago. The menu now is very different, and a bit "pretentious" for us. For example, I ordered a venison burger with chips, which was served on a wooden board, with the chips served in a flowerpot! My husband had the fish and... More

Thank you for your review, I am sorry the plant pots and wooden burger boards have given off a pretentious feel to you, that's just our way of doing things, and having a different take on how we present some of the dishes, it's all about having fun!! Infact you are the first person since we started using them 14... More

Jolly seaside eatery Crofters Bistro Fortrose Rosemkie. Good pleasant quirky menu, clean good place to eat, slightly off putting welcome. No we had not booked but plenty of seats were available when we arrived. Very popular place, soon restaurant was full. Waiter looked very handsome in his kilt. We did enjoy our lunch, good value, will certainly return next time... More
