Lovely wee restaurant in Lochcarron. Nice cosy atmosphere, staff very friendly and helpful. Food was delicious! Opens at 5pm and best to book to avoid disappointment. I reserved a table via a message on their Facebook page. Response was swift!

In Lochcarron there is only the hotel and the bistro offering food in the evening. Luckily, I would recommend eating at both establishments. The bistro seats around 25 people so advance booking is essential. There is really only one window seat overlooking the loch but...More

the establishment with the black Labradors is Lochcarron Hotel which is lovely and also serves food. the Bistro is not an appropriate setting for a dog. We have one and he stopped in the car whilst we ate.
