Glad we found this place on the second day of our holiday. Amazing seafood and meat dishes and lovely relaxed atmosphere. Will be back later in the week. Had the haddock and chips. Fish was a whale and chips were the most delicious ever.

Since my last visit the food remains just as good and cooked to order virtually in your own sight. Seafood platter is a speciality. The restaurant now opens for much of the year. booking is advised to avoid disappointment.

A good find - highlights included seafood chowder and the mussels. The mussels were enhanced by the inclusion of a few smoked ones.

Handy on the main street with a good atmosphere. On can see the chef preparing with total concentration. The food and seafood was delicious with a glass of wine available rather then ordering a full bottle. The dessert was original and satisfying, a wonderful way...More

Had an absolutely amazing meal tonight as always. My Venison was cooked to absolute perfection and my husband had the lobster which was out of this world. 10/10 to the Chef he is amazing and the staff very attentive. Cannot rate Lochcarron Bistro high enough....More

the establishment with the black Labradors is Lochcarron Hotel which is lovely and also serves food. the Bistro is not an appropriate setting for a dog. We have one and he stopped in the car whilst we ate.
