Cute place with friendly service! We had a huge bowl of mussles with langoustines which was really worth the price. Moreover a smoked salmon which I think I never will find again. Reservation definitely needed.

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.
