Sunday Herald Review
Listed as one of 2007's top ten restaurants
Joanna Blythman reviewed Lochleven Seafood Cafe on Sunday 17th June 2007. Here are some of her comments:
"Here we were served a seafood platter that would make top fish restaurants of the world green with envy"
"All the seafood had been cooked perfectly, the lobster left fleshy and moist, the crab still juicy and sweet. "
" By the time I had finished my main course, a substantial lemon sole on the bone, beautifully cooked and served with a fresh tomato and pepper salsa-type dressing - my companion was still excavating the deepest cavities of his marine bonanza."
" Despite having devoured a mountain of marine life, we still managed to dispatch a dreamy coffee jelly, spiced, I think, with cardamom, along with a tangy posset, exploding with passionfruit sandwiched betwixt a pink vanilla stippled rice pudding and poached pink rhubarb."
" A medal for services to Scottish seafood might just be in order."
"We had a very pleasant time, excellent 'cuisine'. Great. Should teach many of our French chefs!!"

"Our party of ten dined in your excellent restaurant on Saturday 21st June.
We had an incredible meal, and between us we sampled many wonderful dishes. The seafood is of an exquisite standard, being fresh, flavoursome and cooked to perfection. Congratulations on producing such excellent food, and a big thank you to your team who served us enthusiastically, efficiently and cheerfully.
