A very good lunch!

Most of it has been said before but for a first time visit we were not disappointed. As a family of four plus one child we had a good lunch. We didn't want a mountain of food and ordered a half portion of the delicious mussels, fish and chips, scallops and a huge sandwich. Chips came with the meal... read more

We booked a table for lunch today at the Crofters and were really pleased with our choice of restaurant. The Bistro is located on the seafront with really pleasant views on a sunny day. The Crofters was busy with lunchtime diners, however, we were lucky to get a seat by the window with plenty of room. We both ordered Cullen... More

If you want a light lunch, DO NOT ask for the sandwiches! Popped in today after dolphin-spotting at Channonry Point, looking for a light meal. Looked at the main menu and specials, and seeing a couple of other customers with appetizing, but large , portions, decided to have sandwiches. Well, these are more of the same! Very tasty fillings (goats... More

My family and I had a delicious meal at Crofter's Bistro whilst we were on holiday in Scotland recently. The food arrived at our table fresh and well presented. We washed it down with some lovely wine. We will definitely go back to Crofter's if we ever visit Scotland again. IT comes highly recommended by us.

The food was excellent and my fish and chips so fresh and beautifully cooked and presented. My friend was equally satisfied with her lamb. The service could not be faulted and it is lovely going to a restaurant in such a perfect location.

Had an amazing lunch over looking the North Sea. The food was incredible, very attractively plated with enormous portions, served by very friendly staff. Well worth a return visit.

I have read reviews on here since visiting, and agree service on the whole was charming, though absent a lot when visiting Resturant. No question there was sufficient staff as mentioned by owner in previous response to another unhappy customer. They did try to provide a lovely experience and despite not having a children's menu did we learned through overhearing... More
