This list is not meant to be a recommendation. Please could anyone visiting any of these restaurants leave their comments in the comments field below. At some stage in the future I will use these comments to make a recommended list.

Also, if there are any good restaurants or cafes that you come across which are not on this list, please list in the comments. I will add them to the main post.


  1. To clarify this post. We have only personally eaten at The Summer Isles Hotel & Bar; The Fuaran; The Ceilidh Place; The Seaforth; The Morefield & the Lochinver Larder – all of which were great & I would recommend.

    Please add your own tips or ratings for restaurants in this thread.

    Also, a message to any of the business owners listed here. Please feel free to write a little more about your restaurant/pub/cafe. Just make sure that you post openly as the owner so that readers understand your interest.

  2. what about the ‘village green’ cafe @ lochinver ? surprised no mention of this fair trades/ ethical, excellent, coffee and cake shop ! next to spar shop virtually.
