We are regular visitors to this area and have driven past the Kishorn seafood Bar several times. We decided to visit for lunch en route to Skye having read all the fab reviews. It was a chilly day and the room was cold. No heating on at all. We kept our coats on. Ordered baked potato with poached salmon with salad and two cups of tea. Baked potatoes were re heated and rubbery. The salmon was a very meagre portion and the salad tiny and basic with no dressing. No butter for the potato or any other sauces or even a black pepper mill. We were bitterly disappointed, especially as the bill was just short of £20! We will not be returning. If you really want seafood as it should be served make the journey to the Applecross Inn, you will see what we mean by a really good seafood experience and not look back!

A little disappointed considering the reviews we have read. I ordered the mixed salmon dish with brown bread - it came with oatcakes - no bread, no explanation! OH had scallops and croissant (the house special) which was very tasty. Staff seemed rally rushed and panicky - even though this was lunchtime on a rainy cold October day. We left feeling that we were glad we had tried it, but would not be in a hurry to return.

Blink and you'll miss it - so don't blink because you will regret missing it. A simple, rustic, cafe-style layout. Friendly people who don't mind you asking stupid questions - like 'what's a squat lobster?' - and don't condescend when they give you the answer. The varieties of salmon is excellent, according to my wife and her sister. I had the scallops in garlic butter served with a warm croissant, which was also excellent. If you aren't into seafood, they do have one or two alternatives, but it's the fresh seafood you go for.

Small cosy seafood bar. Excellent fresh seafood - try the squat lobsters. Even when packed didn't have long to wait for food - cullen skink soup was also delicious.Mostly seafood but a few toasted sandwiches, baked potato etc. also on menu.
