Had a fabulous birthday lunch at this gem of a restaurant. Burger of the day kept the kids happy and the seafood selection was devine! Wonderful atmosphere and plenty of options on the menu. Right on the shore of Rosemarkie Beach which gives you the option of working up an appetite or working off your pudding!! Looking forward to getting... More

Last night, visited here, with friends. Had originally booked for 2 but was able to up to 4. Is recommended to book but not too busy early on. Had been recommended to us so decided to give it a try. Only 6 or 7 items for starters and mains and 4 sweets plus 3 specials so hope menu changes often.... More

My partners and I came here for dinner for my birthday and what a treat! We were staying in the Yurts and was a fair walk to and from Rosemarkie so we'd worked up an appetite. The gentleman that served us was lovely and attentive and we were seated my the window with a view of the sea. My partner... More

Had a lovely walk along from the point to Rosemarkie and stopped in Crofter's for a cup of tea. Beautiful little building - really bright and nicely decorated inside. Just had two coffees and a piece of delicious carrot cake - really high standard and well priced. Great service and would definitely visit again!

Friendly warm atmosphere, interesting menu, good food and a great walk on the beach before or after the meal. What more could we want! Slightly quirky opening times, but well worth a visit or two on days that are suitable.

We had dinner at Crofters a few days ago and were very impressed by the standard of food, the stunning location and the friendly service. Our starters were Cullen Skink and Mackerel on toast, both excellent examples of classic dishes. For mains we ate from the daily specials, a delicious tandoori scallop & chorizio skewers dish and home-cured maple pork-... More

Visited the bistro last night and had sea bream, steak and tandoori burgers for main courses. Request for small portion was no problem. Boys had starters of olives in a delicious marinade and aloo gobi which came with a spiced fresh paste. Drinks were wonderful -homemade lemonade, Black Isle beers and a crisp white wine by the glass. Desserts were... More

What a wonderful place we stumbled upon for lunch whilst attempting to spot dolphins! Both my husband and I chose the battered fish sandwich which came with chips. Simply wow. Very large portion, so don't plan to eat a big dinner too! Great service and lovely ambience, as well as a spectacular location. Highly recommended.
