Lovely small bistro, great food, friendly service, seafood was amazing and tasty steaks. Chef is wonderful cooking on his own in an open kitchen... I will certainly return next year. Booking is essential.

the establishment with the black Labradors is Lochcarron Hotel which is lovely and also serves food. the Bistro is not an appropriate setting for a dog. We have one and he stopped in the car whilst we ate.
