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

Just had the best meals yet in Scotland, food was first class even though the menu is slightly limited. We booked for a table early evening and glad we did as it soon became busy with both people on holiday ( like us) and locals ( always feel this is a good sign ). Pity we are going home soon... More

Excellent service. The food was good but the prices were steep. Small and very clean. We were short on choice due to eating a bit late. Sorry we missed the place down the street, they were closed.

Great fish and chips - ultra fresh fish and good chunky chips one night; the other - langoustine and mussels - delicious! Friendly, cheerful service too.

Recommend booking a table and we found it worth going early too as some dishes are clearly popular and sell out. The portions are really generous - three of our party had haddock and chips which was really well presented and went down well; I opted for two starters instead of a main and can thoroughly recommend the seafood chowder...

Visited here on the strength of reviews but was rather disappointed. From the indifferent welcome (kept waiting in the doorway for some time despite many free tables) to the disappointing and overpriced food and frankly bizarre music. Very expensive food lacking in flavour, watery microwaved vegetables and oversalted starters. The service was bored and irritable. At these prices, get your... More
