Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had dinner here at the recommendation of our hotel whilst doing NC500. They had limited capacity due to covid19 restrictions and had to turn people away (on a Wed) so we would definitely recommend booking. We note efforts such as hand sanitiser, spacing out arriving guests (time wise and space wise), contacts etc. Food: Tasty homestyle cooking. We had venison and sea bass (fish of the day) as mains, both were delicious and portions were generous. Sea bass tasted very fresh! Venison sauce could have been warmer but that's picking bones. We finished with cheesecake and tiramisu which we thoroughly enjoyed. Coffee and liquor flavour could be stronger for tiramisu perhaps. Service: prompt and polite, could see no fault! Overall: unpretentious little restaurant serving tasty food, would recommend for dinner

I had Sea Bass which was beautifully presented, served with asparagus and crushed potatoes and cooked to perfection. For pudding I had their home made Tiramisu which was quite possibly the best tiramisu I've ever tasted, again beautifully presented in a heart shaped pottery dish. The atmosphere was relaxed ,the staff were lovely and care was obviously being taken to abide by the Covid guidelines. It's a bit tricky to find in the dark but if you follow the road round either way, you will find it. There was water set out on the table and you can take your choice of alcoholic beverage if you wish. I definitely hope to return one day.

Ate here tonight and it was lovely lovely lovely. The mackeral for main was cooked to perfection, and the side of asparagus wrapped in parma ham was as good as I've tasted anywhere... Partners tiramisu was amazing, good portion size.. We were glad of a short walk back to our accommodation Recommended

Horrible lunch ... as per other reviewers, we read the reviews and as there isn’t a lot of places around here we thought we’d give it a go given the pictures looked so good. Upon arriving The lunch menu was very restricted .. I ordered two paninis.. one turkey and Brie, one ham and cheese. I ordered as takeaway... upon opening they were warm ish on the outside and so cold in the middle .. at £6/£7 a shot I know they are never going to be the highest quality but the Turkey was that cheapest preprocessed roll meat you buy in packets that doesn’t even resemble turkey... I tried to feed it to the dog and they turned their noses up at it 😕 maybe dinner would be nicer but avoid it for lunch!

Found ourselves hungry and without a lunch plan so ended up here. Service was ok if a little haphazard. We ordered from the very limited sandwich menu. For £7 per ciabatta sandwich you really would expect more. They were tasty but small for the price. No kids menu, very little variety. Worryingly no one took our contact details for track and trace and Covid measures seemed sparse and haphazard. There was a gentleman who came in and sat at the counter having a coffee right by the servers and breathing over an uncovered tray of croissants. Yuk. Wished we'd gone elsewhere.

Had delicious soups, homemade mackerel pâté and salmon sandwiches here (and hot chocolate with marshmallows!) Good service from the staff and dog friendly. Located in the Balnakiel craft village, the café is hidden away a bit but well worth walking around to find. Would recommend.

This place is hidden away and offers a simple but very tasty menu, the fresh fish of the day was very enjoyable with two different options. It does not have a license but you can bring your own alcohol for no charge, there is a good range of soft drinks. The service was quick but not rushed and the staff were very friendly...

Very friendly staff but the food was such a let down. We ordered lentil soup and a turkey ciabatta with cranberry and Brie. The soup was grey and extremely salty. Definitely didn’t seem to be lentil soup. More of a broth. The ciabatta was poor. A thin slice of turkey on the bottom with two thick bits of Brie with cranberry sauce slapped on top. Neither of us finished our meals. Expected more after reading other reviews.

Popped in here today with our dog. Initially we couldn’t get a table but came back 10 minutes later. It was worth the wait ! Service was fantastic. The waitresses were so friendly and helpful and offered our dog a bowl of water and treats. Food was amazing. Lovely selection of ciabattas and wonderful cakes. We opted for the pulled pork ciabatta with salad and the goats cheese and beetroot ciabatta with cauliflower soup. The coffee and hot chocolate were fabulous not to mention the peach cake. All freshly made and absolutely delicious. Also overheard one of the waitresses helping out with a family who had food allergies and who wanted to have something specific that wasnt on the menu. The waitress took it all in her stride and it didn’t seem to be any bother at all. Well Done all the staff involved in this gem of a place !! Would definitely recommend stopping here. It’s a bit out of the way and at the rear of the ‘craft village’ but Don’t drive past. You won’t be disappointed

We stopped here for tea and cake yesterday and enjoyed it so much we came back for lunch. Fab soup and really good ciabattas. They make their own cakes which are light and fluffy and the scones were pretty wonderful too. Definitely a great place to visit

If it is wet and raining then this is the place to be. I have a great bowl of warming soup with gluten free bread and it was what I needed to face the rain on the next leg of the NC500. My husband had a lovely pork ciabatta roll and the coffee was good too. We took a piece of the chocolate brownie for the next leg of the journey... yum Highly recommend if you are in the area

Had a delicious meal, local ingredients, in this quirky restaurant, located in the craft village. Looks like it is run with care and love by a couple of people. Check days it's open as some days it's closed, and phone to book a table. They don't have an alcohol licence so bring your own.

Four friends were visiting the Craft Village whilst travelling the NC500 and decided to pop in here for a bite to eat and something to drink. The place is immaculate with lovely staff, but prices are way above what we consider they should be charging for what’s on offer. That said, we still had some nice refreshments, but all agreed that wouldn’t visit again if we were in the area due to these inflated prices.

Exceptional quality food. The langoustine special was incredible quality , so tasty and plenty of them. The smoked mackerel starter was really food too. A must place to eat in Durness . Highly recommended and friendly helpful service.

Very nice food and excellent service from Klara on the night, who I believe is one of the co owners. We actually ate on the last night that they were open for the season and really enjoyed it. Worth a visit if you are in the area.
