The lady from our hotel booked us a table here and we were so glad she was able to reserve for us. Everything here was excellent! And who would think that there’s a restaurant from a very far place not everyone knows of with a...More

The first thing to say is that this restaurant only opens Monday to Friday, even in the summer although it says it's open at the weekend on the website, we tried to book on 6th October because it said it was open. It closed on...More

Visited on a Tuesday night. This is a small, intimate little restaurant. We called around 6pm and got a reservation for 8:15 pm. Service was friendly and good. We shared two appetizers. The squid was perfectly battered and amazing as was the mushroom dish. I...More

Being located at the train station in Kyle of Lochalsh seems quite strange. The seafood is excellent and the service was good too. Local ingredients and cooked in unique ways. Very small place but excellent for a celebration and a real treat!

This restaurant is quaint. Great service. Loads of character. Gorgeous tasty food. Decent filling portion sizes. Brilliant attention to detail, even the side salad was really tasty. A real hidden gem. What a find!

This is a small restaurant so make sure you have reservations. A good variety of very fresh fish and shellfish is offered. We had four starters and four mains among us and each dish was absolutely terrific.

My wife enjoyed the black pudding and goats cheese. I ordered the smoked seafood platter, which was all fish apart from a small bowl of smoked mussels. Next time I will order the scallops in Thai sauce.

I did not see any around, but the place is small, I do not think it there is enough space for dogs.

The restaurant is virtually all fish/seafood, but it will have 1-2 meat or vegetarian options. They have a website to see sample menu and a facebook page where you can see pictures of the menu board. (Sorry, cannot put the... More
