Went to the Shores at short notice and was amazing by the friendly hospitality we received. They apologised for running a little late but we didn't notice as we were well looked after while we waited. The food was outstanding not only in the quality but also in the quantity. The flavour of the Cullen Skink was beautiful very rich... More

Went for lunch and the friends who took me have been many times before, we were not disappointed. Very nice restaurant and very friendly staff. The starters and mains were excellent and we shared a lovely bottle of Italian Pino Grigio. Plockton is such a pretty village and all in all a very lovely day out for us all

The restaurant kindly accepted our last minute reservation and all the staff were friendly. The food was good but service for us was really slow. Even the neighboring table commented to us that our main course was extremely delayed. Not sure what happened in the kitchen but it caused us to abandon any desire for dessert. It's a small place...

The staff were welcoming and friendly at this cosy restaurant. It was nicely decorated with paintings by a local artist and conected to a small general store. The seafood was simple and tasty. The menu is extensive but don't expect anything fancy, just simple, fresh meals. They offer small portions so you can order more, and there seem to be... More

We booked our table for a busy Saturday night in August. The table was ready for us on arrival and the restaurant looked to be running smoothly. Drinks orders were asked for before we even opened our menu allowing no time to choose something to accompany our meal. Perfect if it was only an aperitif. The food was superb with... More

A superb choice on the menu for all types of 'eater'. I am a veggie and the food was lovely. My family and friends had venison and said that was exceptionally good too. The service was superb; food presentation excellent and my sweet simply scrumptious. Sadly this was the last night of our holiday and home is 450 miles away.

What a disappointment! We ate at The Shores on our last evening in Plockton and had expected great things, it advertises itself as a seafood restaurant and certainly looks the part when compared to the much older Inn and Hotel. What a shame that when you venture inside the welcome that you receive falls well below your expectations - service... More

Thank you for your review, I appreciate your feedback. I would just like to make you aware though, that firstly we do not and have never advertised as a "seafood restaurant" and secondly pretend to be a "gourmet restaurant". We try to cater for everyone including families and couples and produce quality fresh locally sourced food. That said, I am... More

Unbelievable gourmet food in this tiny village! This was an outstanding meal. I had one of the evening specials which was a slow roasted lamb. The flavors were excellent. I'm sorry I didn't make more notes, as this was not a typical stew. There were many seasonings from herbs and vegetables. It was just delicious. My daughter had an equally... More
