Excellent bistro with lovely view and good value food

We had 2 lunches here during our week in Rosemarkie. It's a well run little restaurant with a very nice standard menu and always a few daily specials and sandwiches to choose from.

Booked a table for lunch after being told what great place it was and was certainly not disappointed. The food was excellent and the service very good. I had the Cullen skink which was fantastic followed by the Thai burger. Although only a small venue they certainly punch above their weight. Will I go back. Definitely!!!

This is a little gem of a Restraunt, the crofters overlooks the bay at Rosemarkie and you can often be lucky to spot dolphins, but the main thing about the crofters is the excellent food and great service that you get there and the friendlieness of the staff, nothing is to much trouble for them. A must is there chocolate... More

This has become a regular spot for us on trips to Inverness. We ate here for lunch during a recent three night stay in Inverness, enjoying a great bowl of soup and homemade bread and booked for dinner later in our stay. As ever the food was fantastic, the service excellent and the price extremely reasonable for both.Highly recommended, particularly... More

Two of us had dinner at the Crofters restaurant three times during our stay at Rosemarkie. Each time was excellent. Warm, friendly welcome on arrival. Wholesome, freshly made food. Local bottled beer selection and good wine list. All with a view of the sea. What more could you ask for. Make sure you call ahead to book, they are very... More

As one ages, a large meal at lunchtime lacks appeal. Thus our first impression of the menu was a little daunting. However, the very pleasant and helpful waiter was only too happy to compromise and we settled for Cullen Skink (the best we have ever tasted) and a shared sandwich.The cost was very reasonable and the surroundings and decor most...
