“Another first class meal 14 months later”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

We were touring Scotland in September this year again and just had to go back and see if the meals were just as good as last year. We wondered if the same staff were.

We called in the morning as we were travelling about to book a table for four of us at the same table we had last year. I just asked the young chef whether it was the same butcher that supplied the steaks and he assured me it was.

We all had the steak this year and YES it is still the best steak I have ever eaten and if ever going back to the Highlands this is one certain place we will always go back too.

It really is a small community hall in a small village and nondescript from the outside but the the warm welcome and the food that awaits you is worth going there for as I said last year - if you are anywhere near - just go as you will not regret it.

This time we had the fresh Banana Milkshake as well and coupled with the steak meal it was ample for us and could not force down a pudding. They still do not serve alcohol but if you take your own bottle of wine, they supply the corkscrew and glasses or beer glasses if you take beer.

Thank you for another lovely meal

“Good food - try it out.”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

Not bad restaurant in Kinlochewe. Tries very hard in a tiny village so give it your support. It doesn't look much from outside (red tin roof shed) but it's more welcoming indoors.

“Excellent.....not to be missed”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

Do not judge this wonderful cafe by its exterior, go inside and once eaten, judge for yourself. This is a superb little gem which we were lucky enough to stumbled upon whilst in Kinlochewe. Arriving at 8:30pm we were made to feel most welcome......even although the cafe was closing at 9pm! Nothing was too much trouble, staff were friendly, atmosphere was good and the food fantastic, "bring your own bottle" with no corkage, added to the enjoyment of our meals. We will, without a doubt, visit the Whistle stop cafe again, next time we are in the area. (Thank you for supplying the much needed hot water for our flask!) Moira and Joe. Glasgow

Had two amazing breakfasts here. Made to feel very welcome and the breakfast was out of this world. Wonderful black pudding and generous and friendly hosts.

I have always had a warm welcome at the Whistle stop, right from my very first visit. The quality of food is excellent, with a varied menu to suit all tastes.
The staff are friendly, down to earth, and always keen to provide a good service to the customers.
Keep up the good work.
