Great wee bistro, with a great selection on the menu and specials. As you can see from the photo I opted for the mussels & Lingoustines, which were more like small lobsters!! My wife had salmon with beetroot & lemon and we both had clear plates at the finish. I followed with the cheese board, with a nice selection particularly... More

Visited the Bistro on our wedding anniversary and had an excellent meal, a nice choice of food on the menu and all prepared almost in view in the open kitchen. Well worth a visit and I wished we had gone again. If anything we actually found the portions a wee bit large, but we left nothing it was that good...

Delicious food with plenty of choice, much locally sourced. Small bistro with nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Need to book, but worth it.

Visited for dinner one night whilst touring the North Coast 500. This is a small restaurant with a good range of bistro style dishes prepared and served from an open kitchen. Booking essential.

Had dinner here tonight after a day of hillwalking. The bistro is welcoming & relaxed. We shared a starter (plenty for 2!), main course each, then shared dessert. The 2 young waiting staff were excellent and the food was delicious. Would definitely recommend this place. The evening was rounded off perfectly with a sighting of 2 otters in the loch... More

Did not expect to find such a fantastic restaurant in this quiet corner of the Highlands. A compact restaurant with 2 chefs producing unfussy and superb dishes, particularly the seafood choices. The waiting staff knew exactly when to assist. Booking in advance a must.

The Lochcarron bistro is a delightfully quaint small bistro. It is advisable to book as it is very popular. The service was friendly and very efficient. The food was exceptional especially the locally caught seafood specials.

Small but charming bistro, informal but attentive. Advanced booking required. Modern menu, well cooked, nice wine list too. Very enjoyable.
