Fab seafood with very low food miles!!!
May 2021
We'd been here before so made a point of stopping a few times this visit. Fresh, local seafood available, a range of accompaniments, also a decent frozen selection with a choice of meat cuts. They have an outside eating area if you want to eat on the go or you can take away to eat at home.

Brilliant, fresh food! A short walk from the distillery and I had oyster and mussels. Great view whilst eating food! Nice bit of history on the walls

The freshest seafood ever
Oct 2020 • Couples
After being recommended by several friends we stopped for a late lunch on the way to our accommodation.
The staff were knowledgeable, friendly and polite. They were more than happy to explain oysters to 2 total newbies.
The hot food was delicious and not over seasoned. Fresh, hearty lunch with fantastic views. We had oysters, lobster and scallops.

This is one of the best fresh seafood shops we have ever been too. The selection of the day is fantastic value and tastes absolutely incredible. Do not miss this experience if you love sea food. They also provide home delivery!!!!!

Fresh seafood in Carbost
Sep 2020 • Couples
Great casual place to pick up fresh oysters but if getting hot food be prepared to wait as very popular (we had to wait 30mins at 3:45). Chips were meh and difficult to eat half a lobster and langoustines with a plastic fork. Also great views of Carbost. Summary - go for the Oysters.

Amazing - 5+ rating

Amazing oysters, lobsters and crab eaten on old whisky barrels overlooking the bay on a cold (ok maybe in Scotland it was warm) rainy day. Just amazing.

We bought and ate the most wonderful sea food. A little gem of a place hidden away with a nice little gift shop too

We ordered some seafood online five days previously and prepaid. They cancelled the order a day before delivery leaving our dinner party plans ruined.

No explanation given.
