An unremarkable place but where you eat very well. The beef is very tasty, well cooked and you have plenty of choices between sea food and meat. Service is pretty quick and it's a good value for money.

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.
