We were very impressed with this little gem of a restaurant. Serves excellent, well cooked and great quality food at very reasonable prices. For certain, you won't leave hungry.
It's a really quirky place which is just what we like. Eclectic but not at all pretentious.
Food, service and atmosphere were spot on and a credit to the Highlands ( tourist rip off joints should sit up and take note !)

My wife had sole - two full sides of sole.
I had haddock - two full sides of haddock - no sweet!!
What great value.
It is better to book especially for parties of four or more.
The experienced staff are very good - the younger trainees need more guidance.

We we'd recommended this restaurant by a friend and it did not disappoint. The welcome from our waitress was wonderful and she guided us through the menu explaining the options. The service was very efficient and our meals arrived very quickly. The portions were very generous and were very tasty. The fish was fresh and tasted fantastic and the chicken kiev also. This is definitely the place for filling empty tums.

What a FABULOUS little restaurant! Eyecatching in its unusual style of decoration, but the food . . out of this world. We wanted only a light lunch during our travelling, so simply ordered a 'starter' of smoked salmon with brown bread and salad garnish - my goodness! The generous portions that we were presented with were more like a main meal! Thoroughly enjoyed - I had HOPED for a dessert as well, as the home-made meringues on display were very enticing (not to mention enormous!!!) but . . too well satisfied with our 'starter' lunch. Thank you for an especially memorable lunch, 'La Mirage' in Helmsdale. :)

When you are on empty and need to fill up this is the place to go, after looking at the reviews for this and other local restaurants we decided to call in, we were driving further north and wanted a quick fill up. We were not disappointed, so much food!! The fish was fresh and succulent, the best I've had outside of my home kitchen and the chips perfect. A great atmosphere and 5* food
