Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Fabulous lunch today - superb poached salmon, scallops and hot smoked salmon. They even cooked us some divine new potatoes. Salad and coleslaw were as good as it gets. We live on Skye, but this was so much more enjoyable than overrated espablishments on the...island. Superb, cannot wait for them to reopenMore

Amazing food. We had a lovely seafood soup, smoked salmon and seafood orzo and it was a 10 out of 10 on all counts. Generous portions. We wanted to come for breakfast, lunch and dinner the next day !

This is a casual, cosy restaurant. We went for an evening meal and had the seafood platter for two which cost £120.00. I have had this dish in France, Canada and New Zealand. None of them compared to Kishorn! If you intend to go, book...a table - both times we went it was full.More

Excellent! Food and service excellent. We arrived early for a table, as it was a rainy day and wanted to sit inside. Wow the smell from the open kitchen sets your taste buds off straight away. Food was delicious and service great as well. What...a find! Don’t take in any notice of negative reviews, this place is a find! We called on the NC500 route. Will be back, absolutely delicious!More

Reviewed 12 August 2023

I gave this 4 stars because the fare was very good and a nice setting (on a nice day). We had the Scallops £18.50 and hot smoked salmon fillet £16.50. I dropped a star because it is expensive and maybe not as good as what...you would get at the shack in Ullapool or Oban for a more reasonable price. When researching it is difficult to find a price list, because apparently it is priced everyday, but I think they could give a ballpark figure if they wanted to. I've posted a couple of pictures showing the pricelist on our visit. Definately worth a visit but maybe not too often.More

Excellent oysters but terrible front of house service. We drove a 90 mile round trip to sample the seafood ,but left disappointed. As we walked in there was no " Hello , how are you" just a " it's last orders in 15 mins and...the menus are on the board" We found our own table and looked at the menu board. We expected some communication of the fact that you order at the till and that it is not table service. It never came. We nearly walked out at that point but stayed instead to spend our cash. My six oysters came and were very good. No eye contact or words from the waitress. The lady front of house possibly the owner / manager is in the wrong job. We did not feel welcomed only rushed and our experience was ruined. We had to ask for napkins and as we left, again no thank you or bye bye. Buck your ideas up madam you are no help to the business.More

I picked my holiday rental so I could be within walking distance to this seafood bar. That's how much I look forward to Scottish shellfish and salmon every year! And Kishorn seafood bar doesn't disappoint. The service is great and the food absolutely lovely! We...tried everything we could think of during our stay but the seafood platter is definitely one to remember. And they'll sneak your furry friend a snack as well.More

What a treat this was! After a lovely lunch here last year we vowed to return in the evening next time and sample the seafood platter. Two of us shared the platter, the others ordered langoustines, and sea trout. The platter was amazing, absolutely loaded...with delicious seafood, including a lobster. The highlights for me were the lobster and crab claws. The langoustines were outstanding, possibly the best I've ever had, and the sea trout was pronounced 'delicious'. Very pleasant and attentive service and a lovely location on a beautiful evening. Recommended!More

We'd looked forward to this for our whole long weekend away ...a treat ahead we thought! However, the staff were not very friendly, and the food was massively over priced. We have eaten in lots of seafood shack places around Scotland, such as the wonderful...Skipness one which is in such a stunning setting. I checked the Skipness prices today, and their seafood platter for 2 is only £30, whereas at Kishorn it was something like £120. What a rip off! My husband had scallops today and there were only 3 small ones and with a croissant ...what's that about ...doesn't go at all!! I had the salmon platter. I'd hoped to have fresh crab or some other crustacean kind of seafood, but at £25 for a whole crab I had to pick something else. The gravadlax and hot smoked salmon were nice but the portions were tiny. The staff also forgot part of our order. My feeling is that the great reviews on here are by tourists from outwith Scotland who just don't know how short this falls below other seafood places on the west coast! Sorry I hate writing negative reviews and indeed hardly ever write reviews but just felt I had to this time.More

The Cullen Skink was delicious and gluten free. This tiny spot even had gluten free bread to go with it, which I hadn’t expected at such a small establishment.. The staff were very friendly, too. It’s definitely worth a stop if heading to Applecross.
