“What a gem!”
Reviewed 22 October 2013 via mobile

We were staying in Helmsdale and found the Station Bistro on the way through, what a great find. I had sea trout which was delicious my husband had the fish and chips which he says was the best he had eaten in a long time. The whole experience was so good and we will be going back before we go back home.
If you are in the area The Station Bistro is a must.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

We had a lovely meal here this evening (a quiet Monday). The food was delicious - I had puff pastry tart with goats cheese and salad, my husband had fish and chips, we shared a sticky toffee pudding. The Manager was friendly and welcoming and the service was very good. This is definitely one of the best restaurants we've tried in Sutherland and Caithness. We will visit again when we're next passing through Brora, even if it's only for coffee and cake.

“Dave M/cr - A must visit”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

In Brora for short holiday with friends last week, visited the Station Bistro (twice) it was so good. If in Brora you've got to visit this place. Food, service, excellent, nothing too much trouble. On the first occasion the manager was just closing up as we were walking to the front door, he opened up and welcomed the four of us in..had a really tasty main meal with wonderful sweets/puddings afterwards. It's a new venture and they are clearly working hard to please their customers as best they can. I would highly recommend a visit to the Station Bistro you will not be disappointed.

“not what we had hoped for”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

Decided to try this new restaurant as there were a number of good reviews on tripadvisor .Visited on a quiet Tuesday and was pretty disappointed with what we got.There was a long wait which lead the waitress to deduct the wine from our bill of the four meals three were ok and one was poor .The waitress was very pleasant but the meal was disappointing and we would not go back again im afraid.
