Came across this restaurant by chance, and loved it. The menu was much more exciting than the standard stuff most pubs and restaurants offer, and the food was plentiful and lovely. I had mushroom and hazelnut soup which was absolutely delicious. My daughter had a small portion of mussels which was more than big enough for lunch. The cinnamon and... More

I stayed in Plockton for 2 nights and since there are only a few places to eat, I made reservations ahead of time via email at Plockton Shores. Upon arriving at the restaurant, I was told that they didn't have my booking and the restaurant was fully booked due to the sailing regatta in town. Not only was the female... More

We ate here one night in June and expected something special having read various reviews. The food was just ok, nothing special, but the service that night was really poor. We waited ages to get menus, and ages to order or get a drink. The woman who seemed to own it was run off her feet trying to do everything... More

Really gorgeous little restaurant looking out to the sea. There are plenty of lovely dishes for fish and seafood fans. I opted for the scallops in tempura batter as I'd never had them that way before and they were delicious (and the portion was pretty big too). The food comes with a dish of potatoes and chips for you to... More

This is by far our favorite restaurant for seafood. We ate there three nights in a row. Food is very fresh, and well prepared. Ambience is just right

I'm sure that the dining experience here is good and am only commenting on the value for money of the cappucino here. Not brilliant taste or value for money given the size of the cup. Hubbie said staff weren't very cheery either - what a shame, because we were!

Four of us had a great meal here and all enjoyed our courses. We each had the gravadlax, smoked mackerel pâté and asparagus roulade starter which we all enjoyed. Had a variety of mains all of which were good and of the quality you would expect to pay a good bit more for in Edinburgh. At the end of the... More

We enjoyed our first meal here so much we immediately made a reservation to come back on the final night of our stay. Service was friendly and helpful. Our son knocked over his almost finished drink by accident and they immediately brought him a full new one free of charge. We particularly enjoyed the seafood, but other options (vegetarian, venison,... More

Squeezed me in at a very busy time of year as I had arrived in village without thinking to book ahead for dinner. Good selection on menu, reasonable prices and staff couldn't have been more helpful when selecting and cooking a meal for me to accommodate allergies. I honestly can't remember when I last received such good customer service.

Spending the week in Plockton with my husband and 2 friends I had decided to spend the evening of my Birthday here-good choice! Efficient friendly service and superb food with an emphasis on local produce.With 3 out of 4 of us having previously worked in the catering/hospitality trade we are not easily impressed- suffice to say,we were VERY. Another good... More
