Basic and simple, but ok. Modest menu if you're non seafood, but if you like the sea, wow you'll have a ball. Nice fresh salad with the toasties. Friendly staff and free wifi. Decent range of drinks and easy parking outside.

Range of specials on the chalk board & a range of small tables along the window wall overlooking the harbour. The waitress / barkeeper was friendly and efficient. There was a small tray of home-baked cakes on the corner of the bar. The food was tasty and served in a timely fashion. My one quibble was that the toilet cubicles... More

We dropped into FBI to grab a pint and a wine after having dinner elsewhere. It was warm and cheap. The staff was great and we had a good time.

we ate 3 evenings in a row and were not at all disappointed. We treated ourselves to local oysters and langoustine - yummy.

Dined with two friends who have previously eaten here and loved the food. I had Cullen Skink for starters and seabass for mains and it was devine. I've never had skink before but it is now a seafood favourite. It was quite busy in the restaurant so book to avoid disappointment. Very reasonably priced for high quality food. Situated by... More

There was 4 of us.Things started going wrong immediately with the scruffy,ignorant and arrogant barman..We were ready to walk away by the time we went through to the dining room.The time we waited was unacceptable but worse was to come.When the main arrived it was inedible.The burger and chips is over £13.It was a frozen very thin burger with some...

The day after "Loopallu" (what does it spell backwards?!) 3 of us sat outside FBI in the sun. Great banter with passers by and fellow morning after people at the pub. An almost cloudless sky with the wonderful view up to the head of Loch Broom & the Munro's beyond set the scene for a great pub meal,,, With good... More

Great menu if you like fish & seafood. We had the haddock & chips which was delicious. Light batter & the fish melted in the mouth. Dessert was chocolate tart & chocolate fondant respectively. Absolutely delicious. Being beer lovers we washed it down with pints of Deuchars but there is a reasonable wine list too. Highly recommended.

We had one of the fish platters, and the excellent soup of the day. The service was friendly and attentive, and the food very tasty. The views over the seafront completed a lovely evening. Special recommendation: the cranachan. Probably the best I've tasted in my time in Scotland!

Thank Hanna1750
