This was my first oportunity to order Cullen Skink which is a Scottish fish soup. It was delicious! Serves was great. We came early without reservations and snagged a table for 4 on a week night. Kudos to the chef!

During my trip to Thurso I had lunch in Le Bistro. Kind service and a good quality lunch (we had Haggis Bon Bons and goat cheese) and a nice sitting area made our lunch experience very positive.

We ate here on a recent motorcycle tour of Scotland. The food was excellent. Really enjoyed the steamed haddock. Bottled beers from the Orkney Brewery were pleasant. Staff were very friendly and the ambience cosy and welcoming on, what was, a damp evening. A touch...More

If you follow for A96 for Inverness then the A9 to Thurso. This would take you to us although this is about a 4.5-5hr journey from Aberdeen. Hope this helps. Best Regards Brian
