Great quality lunch

Been coming here every time we come up to the Black Isle, this was the first time this year. Food is still excellent, well worth the trip to rosemarkie. This time the fish and chips were fantastic, all quality ingredients well prepared with good customer service, you can taste the difference. My... read more

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

This was a return visit to Crofters and the food was perfectly cooked, and served by a charming and most attentive young man who definitely suited the kilt! Good to see a bit of Scottish pride in our eating establishments (and no, I'm not a Scot Nat!!). Best to book beforehand as this is a popular restaurant situated on the... More

Spent the day at rosemarkie and rather go home to cook, we decided to eat there as it looked nice. Have to say was very disappointed we both ordered fish and chips which looked lovely, but have to say didn't taste lovely the fish was tasteless and my husbands wasn't even hot. He called waiter over to tell him and... More

Very friendly greeting, lovely decor, great view, excellent food. Booked lunch for a vegan and vegetarian and this presented no problem. The Chef knows his/her stuff with plenty of choice or adaptions to menu. Even came up with a dessert. A leisurely meal followed by tempting desserts and good coffee. Sited by the beach at Rosemarkie the restaurant is light... More

Beautifully located four of us came to eat here our first night in Rosemarkie. The Steak is to die for and the fish was the best my 12 year old had ever tasted. We had a fantastic meal and we were not pressured by time. Very relaxed atmosphere. Definitely recommend.

Have just enjoyed a lovely meal with lovely friends on the last night got of our holiday. The Shetland mussels were yummy and we all enjoyed our food. Attentive staff, lovely view and a great ambience. Will definitely go back. Thank-you.

Having just returned from a meal out with our friends, I would just like to recommend your lovely bistro to anyone who appreciates tasty, freshly homecooked local food in a gorgeous setting. Very friendly staff and attentive service added to a very enjoyable evening out indeed.

This place was recommended to us by a couple of separate people and we had looked at it on a previous trip to the Black Isle. Decided to finally try it on the last evening of our recent holiday and were very disappointed. It's not a cheap place to eat and the quality of the food just didn't warrant the... More

We popped into this bistro after walking out to the point and had a great experience here. We started out on the deck because they were fully booked as it was Friday evening. The scallops we had for an appetizer were perfectly prepared and gorgeous. We were moved inside for our main courses, which were wonderfully prepared. The atmosphere was... More
