The restaurant is only open for 3/ nights a week - Thurs- Sat and is best to book as the owner is also the chef and wants to ensure all the food is cooked to a high standard. The food was excellent - with the young waiting staff clearly in training - but a delight to see young people being... More

Birthday meal here last night and it lived up to the 5 star reviews. I started with haggis and black pudding fritters; light and flavoursome a great starter. Main course for me was the fresh sea food combo; lingostines, crab, whitebait and mussels that filled a wok. My wife had the local venison which was succulent and cooked to perfection.... More

We ate here on our North Coast 500 adventure. We choose the seafood combo and the posh fish and chips, both absolutely stunning. We love seafood so have eaten lots, in fact we choose it whenever we can and this meal sends out for taste, freshness and for the perfect cooking of the seafood. A very talented chef, we would...

We were touring the Scottish Highlands and found ourselves staying in a dubious (for want of better words) hotel in Lochcarron. Not feeling inclined to dine in our hotel we walked out Loch side and happened upon the bistro. Luckily we got a table and so glad that we did. The staff were very friendly, the service spot on and... More

Had previously enquired about opening times due to my visit being late in the season. Reception and food excellent, left absolutely stuffed and would visit again when next in the area. Thank you.

We had a lovely meal in this cosy restaurant. Staff were great, food was delicious and a good choice of sea food and other dishes. Quite busy on a Friday night in September, best to book a table. We had Posh fish and chips and smoked duck breast - both were yummy!

During our North Coast 500 trip in August we happened to be staying in Lochcarron and by chance booked a meal in the Lochcarron Bistro upon the recommendation of the lady running our B&B. Well, I have to say it was the nicest meal we ate while on our 8 day adventure around the Highlands. That being said, it is... More

Great place Food was delicious. We have just come back from Lochcarron Bistro after having evening meal. Sea food combo was excellent and more than enough for one person. I was grateful that my boyfriend helped me because it was too good meal to leave it. I would recommend this place and definitely I will be back if I am... More
