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.

My husband and I had dinner here while traveling through and I still dream about the amazing and giant mussels we had here ! The waiters were so helpful and nice. Beautiful restaurant in the cutest little harbor town. I can’t wait to go back.

Super and food and super friendly staff. Really liked everything about this place. The nice waiter suggested a beer (which was her personal favorite) and it was spot on! Make sure to try this place if around…

Top quality restaurant, with a very agreeable atmosphere. Cannot recommend the seafood too highly, but non- seafood dishes equally as good. Focused, sensibly-priced wine-list. Engaging and efficient staff.

Sadly due to weather issues the langoustine were not available. However, we still had a very nice meal. Service was warm and friendly. The food was very good with my scallops being nice and sweet. I had sea bass and liked the strawberry sauce that...went with it. The veggies were also cooked nicely. We had no room for dessert but options looked good.More

Excellent combination of great food, service and ambience. There is the right amount of choice with lots of lovely seafood but something for the meat lovers too. Everything we had was delicious, seafood chowder, steak pie, smoked haddock and very good dauphinois. Wouldn’t hesitate to...recommendMore

Luckily we had a table with my husband, he had the smoked haddock and I had the mussels, scallops and smoked mussels. It was fine and delicious. Best restaurant we've been to in 3 days in Scotland. The staff are charming, friendly and helpful. We...had a great time in this cosy, quiet and tastefully decorated place.More

We have eaten here 3 times in one week, which is really excessive..but we couldn't help ourselves. Each time I suggested another place, but… Food is excellent and to a sensible menu. But its the staff that makes the difference….cheerful, friendly and low key. Plenty...of fish and shellfish alternatives, plus for non-fish eaters. Well done gang!More

We are sorry, but we messaged you via our booking system. We were stuck in hospital in Inverness. So glad you found somewhere to eat.

Excellent seafood restaurant for relaxed dining. Recommend the smoked haddock and combo main dishes, the langoustines in the combo dish were excellent.

My 93 year old friend Patricia and I (84) visited and had coffee and a cake, Good coffee, nice service. We booked dinner at 18,00 on our last evening in Loch Carron, but on the day, one of us fell ill. We therefore cancelled as...soon as we could. Imagine my horror finding an £80 non attendance charge on my Visa. Extortion, a racket a money grabbing disgrace. Did they really believe they would have made £80 profit out of our attendance? A disgrace, extortionate, assisted by Visa.More

Lovely fresh seafood restaurant and also brilliant local shop. Special thank you to the super friendly ladies at the shop for going the extra mile to help us with groceries when BA cancelled our flight. Lovely cakes and coffee too. If you’re self catering in...Plockton this is the place to buy essentials and top ups around a full Kyle shop.More

We had dinner in mid June. Delicious scallops and very good fish and chips. For the main I had langoustines with mussels. The dish arrived in one big bowl with a very generous helping of mussels and ample “soup”which was very hot. Unfortunately by the...time I got to the langoustines they had gone on cooking in the sauce and were over cooked and mushy.More
