This venue was recommended to us, by some other friends..

What a fantastic; relaxed Bistro.

Great assorted menu
Great attentive and knowledgeable staff

Highly recommended to anyone who loves hearty portioned fresh seafood or fresh meat..

A real ‘must do’ if you live in the area, or like us - just staying overnight

Well done to the owner & staff, for providing great food and service too..

My wife and I were in Lochcarron saw the bistro was open that night so tried for a table for two - success and a very good decision. Everything was delicious. We both enjoyed the haggis and black pudding fritter - unusual but very tasty. I chose the `Shetland blue shell mussels - it comes with bread and butter to soak up the sauce. The selection contained several smoked mussels - a bit darker and meatier and very strikingly smoked. A new taste for me. My wifes main dish was well received. There were so many mussels I couldn't eat them all and had to forego a dessert. My wife's frangipane was delicious. And all at very reasonable prices for the quality of the food.

Ate hear on the final night of a 4 night stay in this glorious part of the UK.

The menu is split equally between seafood and meat with a small vegetarian choice, but as I'm about as far away from a vegetarian as is possible that wasn't a problem for me!

Had a veritable pile of smoked salmon with oatcakes for starter which was lovely followed by Pork loin for main. Both dishes were presented in a stylish but unfussy way and were delicious. My 4 eating companions were equally as pleased with their selections.

Although full after my main the reasonable price tempted me to finish off with a pudding so I went for the relatively light Lemon tart which maintained the high standard set by the previous courses.

The young waiting staff were very friendly and helpful but not good at arithmetic undercharging but around £30 on our bill! However such was the satisfaction with our meal we had no hesitation in pointing out the error and adding on a decent tip.

NB. The restaurant is quite small, seating around 25 people so advance booking strongly recommended.

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.
