“Lovely little bistro”
Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

This is a lovely little bistro set on the loch side in the quiet little town of Lochcarron. The menu draws on local seafood and meat. While there isn't a wide choice, much of it sounds tempting. My wife & I shared a portion of tasty whitebait to start and then both opted for the delicious Aberdeenshire smoked haddock with Orkney cheese sauce for our mains. Replete, there was no room for dessert. Service was relaxed & friendly and the atmosphere pretty chilled. Very much enjoyed it and would definitely call again when I'm back in the area to bag more Munros.

“Go for it!”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

Good food (don't miss the haddock: it's the best I have ever had in my life!)! and cozy place. It looks like France but it's Scotland and outside the windows you can see Loch Carron, which is very nice and romantic. Go as soon as you can to get all the dishes from the menu (they might be not available later on) and enjoy the service and the kindness of the waitress: she likes to sing songs and that's nice! Not very cheap though!

“Great Find”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

Found this excellent Bistro just a short walk from our holiday cottage. Food was superb and service the best we've had in a long time. There was something for every taste on the menu from seafood to duck and steaks. If your in the area at any time it's well worth a visit

“Worth the journey!”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

We live in Kingston upon Thames and Marlborough and, yes, we were staying in Lochcarron. But it would have been worth travelling a long way to eat here. As you might expect, they source great local produce, but everything is cooked and served with a fine combination of style and warm hospitality. You might not expect to find a place with London-quality in Ross & Cromarty, but here it is. A brave decision by the owners, worthy of widespread support. But even if you dropped in for a quick high tea of local fish and chips you'd be well satisfied...

“Always good.”
Reviewed 15 March 2014

Eat here on a regular basis, the food is always consistently good and always well cooked. My wife is very fussy about steak but is always happy with the way her steak is served here. The staff are always welcoming and very helpful, nothing being too much trouble. Would never hesitate to recommend to anyone.
