from the website:

The present building opened in April 1996 as Kishorn Seafood Bar, with a stunning view over the sea to Skye (on a clear day). Since then, the menu, premises, and procedures have developed.  

We gave the building a complete facelift in 2011 to celebrate our 15th Anniversary. In 1999 we achieved the Investors In People standard and again in 2001. In 2000 we purchased a lobster tank, which has proved very useful, and we also became licensed around the same period. Our Seafood Platter is highly popular and has won a Best of Wester Ross Award for 2006. We also recently appeared in The Independent Magazine - 100 Best Restaurants in the UK (10 Best Seafood Restaurants) as well as the Scottish Field magazine (in which we featured as one of the editor's choices of top seafood restaurants) and the BBC Countryfile Magazine. Most recently, we were 2012 winners of the "Best Eatery Award" in the Highlands & Islands Food and Drink Awards. Other publications in which we have been featured are "Coast" magazine, The Spectator, and we were given a star rating of 9 out of 10 by Richard Bath in the "Scotland on Sunday Spectrum" magazine.

The emphasis is very much on local shellfish; with Prawns, Crab and Squat Lobster from Loch Kishorn; Mussels and Oysters from Skye and King Scallops, Lobster, Smoked Salmon and Fresh Salmon also obtained locally. These are all simply cooked and served along Spanish lines. Read more .....Also, you may like to look at our sample menus and obtain a copy of our flyer which you can see here.

The premises are open plan so customers can watch and talk to us, as their meal is prepared. Our ethos and aim is to provide a clean, pleasant, unpretentious, friendly Scottish environment. We have strived to achieve this over the past 18 seasons. A very large proportion of our customers visit us again, often for our Garlic Scallops or to indulge in our Seafood Platter.
