Early evening meal at Crofters to celebrate wedding anniversary. It was our first visit to this restaurant and we will certainly return. There was a good choice of starters and main courses and I opted for the cold shredded duck starter which was delicious, served with pickles and warm toasted bread. My husband had the haggis ball and again these were very tasty. We both had the sea bass with lovely new potatoes and green beans. The beans were in a bundle, wrapped with parma ham which was crispy and made a good contrast. I did think 'not a lot of vegetables' but to be honest it was plenty as it turned out - the balance and portion size was just right. The sea bass had a delicious tangy and creamy mustard sauce with it and the skin was left on the fish and crisped - every morsel was edible and delectable.
Dessert - not a massive choice but sometimes that it a help when, like myself, you have trouble deciding what to have. I opted for the griddled pineapple with whiskey/caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream. It was an unusual dish and enjoyable, the ice cream seemed to be home made. Glayva highland coffee for my husband. Service was good and prices fair. The head waiter was knowledgeable and friendly. All in all a very enjoyable meal.

“Move over Sutor Creek, Crofter's Bistro is now my favorite restaurant in the Black Isle”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

Great, fresh food with fantastic service. Really tasty and although no kids menu, they happily made a meal for my daughter which was just as good as our food. They also serve "Happy Chappy" beer and i certainly was!

First time visit with family. Food very tasty. No kids menu but some of main meals available as half portions so they found something they liked too!

“Could not fault”
Reviewed July 17, 2014 via mobile

Staying in Rosemarkie for a week, we booked up for an evening meal, and walked past the Restaurant on several other occasions.

One of the best recommendations is that is appeared bursting to the rafters every evening.

The staff were engaging, and enthusiastic about what they offer. As for the food, it was everything other reviewers have said - excellent. Would definitely return.
