My girlfriend and I had an exceptional dinner here. The seafood is all fresh from the Loch and surrounding area - you can't ask for better! We ordered the oysters, langoustines (hot), lobster (hot), razor clams, and spaghetti with clams (ok, maybe we went a little overboard!). The langoustines and spaghetti with clams were the highlights, absolutely delicious! Oysters were... More

We visited earlier this month, during our first visit to Scotland. This had been recommended by our BnB. We certainly weren't disappointed- the meal was one of our best on the trip. The marinated anchovies to start were generous and tasty, the crab was huge (super sweet and fresh) and I had my first vongole outside of Italy- fantastic! Worth... More

There is a lot of delicious, well-prepared seafood around this area, but this takes the cake. The restaurant is attached to the shellfish company, which...you guessed it...supplies everyone around with their fresh shellfish. And it is FRESH! There isn't much to say about the food; it is delicious and well-prepared. They also serve local beer and a very nice wine... More

Would recommend booking before you go, we managed to get the last available table. The food was really good, very reasonably priced and high quality. Would definitely go again.

Called in for late lunch on a sunny, busy Saturday. Food and service very good. Great that it's locally sourced showing off the west coast's fantastic seafood. Great little shop next to cafe.

We were a group of university students on vacation, and we headed here based off the great reviews and personal recommendations of one of our party. Between us, we had the fish of the day (whole roasted megrum), fresh oysters, scallops, langoustines, and seafood and lobster gratin. All the portions were sizable, and the seafood was all extremely fresh, sweet,... More

We scheduled a stop for lunch here during a fortnight's tour of the highlands, having heard first hand rave reviews. It totally lived up to expectations, but don't go there expecting cheap eats. It's also advisable to book, even for lunch. We had the hot shellfish platter for two, plus Cullen Skink for starters. The platter included lobster, crab, langoustines,... More

LochLeven Seafood Cafe excellently fulfilled my needs for seafoods when visiting Ballachulish. It required a bit of driving from Ballachulish but it was easily done via a peaceful single track road with beautiful views along the loch. There was a shop next to restaurant for buying the fresh ingredients. Not sure what available as it was closed when I was... More
