We discovered this restaurant thanks to trip advisor and were not disappointed. The staff was so lovely, they recommend us to try some local beers. The food was really amazing, well-cooked with loads of flavours.

We just had a wonderful tasty meal ... in a spot where we plainly didn't expect it. Enjoyed the local micro beer as well.

Small bistro with a great atmosphere and lovely views over Moray Firth. Good range of dishes for vegetarians, the veggie haggis is a revelation! Staff were really welcoming and the service was excellent. Can't recommend this place highly enough, if you're ever in the Black Isle go and check it out!

An off-the-cuff visit to the village and an unplanned stop for lunch - was well worth the effort. Varied menu with a great range of wine and beers, extremely friendly and efficient staff. Five stars does the place an injustice...

Stopped in on the off chance after a walk on the beach. Excellent lunch with a varied and interesting menu. Service was friendly and informal, as was the atmosphere. Curry dish was cooked to my taste and was spot on. The street food baskets were really tasty too (according to No 2 son), as were the burgers. Really enjoyed ourselves... More

The beach is fabulous and the Crofter's Bistro is a gem of a place right at the beach. We did not have lunch but the menu looked fabulous.... More

We had lunch here Very friendly staff ,excellent Cullen Skink and fabulous Scallop an Prawn linguini Unfortunately they had ran out of the 2006 Bollinger (at £255 a bottle I think) Never mind you won't lose a point for that!

Paul and his staff at the Crofters Bistro were amazing. Paul was open to all our requests for the menu and table set up for our wedding meal. We had the Bistro exclusively and nothing was an issue for any of the team. As we had a table plan, the team used our names and made it very personal. The... More

We were in the area looking for dolphins and decided we'd like some lunch. After a quick drive around came across this little place and decided to give it a try. Was warmly welcomed and told about the daily specials from a very friendly member of staff. Excellent choices to be had, I went for the beer battered fish and... More
