Loch Fyne Oyster Bar - The Original

Clachan, Cairndow, Argyll and Bute, PA26 8BL
Stunning scenery and both excellent seafood and local game and meat draws people to the head of this loch, regardless of the season.
After a management buyout, and the creation of a National chain of restaurants (including an amalgamation with the Le Petit Blanc chain) this is where it all started - and is run as a separate business.

The restaurant is tourist-oriented, and can become a little hectic. I you’re a real seafood lover, it’s a small price to pay – as the quality would be hard to surpass.

As the name implies, oysters lead the pack – but their gravadlax, kippers, langoustines, rope-grown mussels, fresh crab, diver-caught scallops and smoked salmon follow close behind. Their ‘Fruits of the Sea’ platter is a particularly splendid affair.

Cooked dishes might include the likes of ‘Smoked Haddock & Bacon Chowder’; ‘Loch Fyne Lightly-Smoked Salmon Fillet with Smoked Paprika Cream’; ‘Grilled Lemon Sole’; Lingni with Langoustine Bisques, Cockles, Fresh Salmon & Loch Fyne Mussels’; ‘Tarbert Scallops with Smoked Crispy Bacon & Garlic Butter’ and ‘Rump of Highland Lamb with Puy Lentils, Apricot & Ginger and Red Cabbage’.
Perhaps finish with ‘Lemon Tart’; ‘Sticky Toffee Pudding with Vanilla Ice Cream’ or their Scottish Cheeseboard.

Service is good and knowledgeable No mobile phones.
