Good tasty food starters good value mains although tasty could do with more on the plate. Chef is trying to get good fresh local produce on the table and succeeds. Good range of bottled beers

Just returned from a long weekend and ate twice at the Lochcarron Bistro. What a find - just a pity it's so far from home or it would be my local eatery. The chef is so obliging and even with a house full, still managed, flying solo in his kitchen, to turn out lovely food. I'm a regular visitor to... More

Staying in Lochcarron for a week we had planned to eat here for one of our evening meals. We had not booked but luckily we got a table for the 3 of us. This eatery appears to be a favourite with the locals. My son loves haddock but does not like batter on asking the chef for breaded fish he... More

Lovely food, the langoustines are absolutely mouthwatering. We would happily eat here every night we were in Lochcarron :) Friendly staff too.

This small bistro has a limited menu but each meal is superbly cooked almost before your eyes. There is a "specials" board for catches of the day. Open from 5pm each day it has a truly intimate feel with friendly staff. Excellent value all round

From the food to the service I doubt you'll find a better venue in the Highlands. This place is an under appreciated delight.

What isn't right with here? An intimate Bistro, with fresh, beautifully cooked food and a superb welcome from Megan. Love it and will be going again as soon as we are back in the area (New Year, I would think!

Popped in here with friends while staying in Lochcarron and had an excellent meal. Very relaxed atmosphere, food was excellent with a good choice of starters and mains. Service was very good and very friendly. It's not the biggest restaurant in the world and you may need to book during the busier summer months, however that does not distract from... More
