We had read some excellent reviews so were pleased to be able to book a table at short notice. This Bistro was busy and we enjoyed the atmosphere. I enjoyed an excellent mushroom starter but the fish and chips main disappointed - the batter and chips were both soggy. My partner had little to choose from as a vegetarian and... More

I think this is one of the best meals I have had out in a very long time. Excellent food, beautifully presented and great service. Nice touch with The Broons and Oor Willie books. Would definitely come back and would happily go out of my way to eat here again.

It's not much to look at but don't let this put you off. The staff are very friendly and make you feel at home. The foods very good, not expensive but be aware the portions are big lol some great views if you eat outside or manage to get a window seat.

On a particularly wild and rainy evening, the staff were immediately welcoming. Someone in the kitchen knew what they were doing here too. We had great scallops with black pudding, and langoustines and mussels presented with humour and style. The restaurant itself plays an eccentric mix of nostalgic 60s toons and each table has a vintage Scottish comic book on... More

It may look plain outside and quirky inside but the food is in no way quirky it was the best haddock and chips my husband had in Scotland. I had cullen skink and I did wonder at one time whether I was going to be able to eat it all. There was (for us) fabulous 60s music going on and... More

Extensive menu. The 3 of us ordered different starters and different main meals and all were presented well and truly delicious. We would be pleased to recommend this bistro to family, friends and anyone else.

The food was hearty and the portions were a good size (we went with Fish and Chips). The fish was cooked excellently and the skins left on the chips was a good touch. It was served in a really interesting way too. The price was quite reasonable. I would eat here again and next time adventure to their more expensive... More

Small bistro on Lochcarron's long Main Street. We were looking for a meal fairly early on this occasion and went for the early evening special (4pm to 6pm) which has a low-cost, simple menu. However, low-cost still means high quality as the food was well-cooked, tasty, good quality and excellent value. The service was very friendly and I would have... More
