Description: Lochleven Seafood Café, Deli and Gift Shop is situated on the north shores of beautiful Loch Leven (on the B86 in North Ballachulish) on the west coast in the Highlands of Scotland. Allowing the sea loch and mountain views to take centre stage alongside our simple yet elegant seafood dishes, our café is designed modest and unamusing. Live shellfish for our family run Restaurant and Deli is kept in onsite seawater tanks where the water is pumped continuously from the cold clean sea-loch on our shore. After being caught locally by our own fishing boats, the shellfish is stored in these tanks. This allows our Chefs to access the freshest possible west coast seafood for the Restaurant and our Deli. NEW for 2018 glass fronted Coffee Shop, Bar & Waiting are with stunning view.

Great setting, surrounded by mountains and overlooking the Loch.

Friendly, helpful staff and a nice bright dining room.

The shellfish was all excellent (we had oysters, mussels, clams, razor clams, and langoustines), and the sides and desserts were all great too.

Highly recommend.

Thank Donald S

We had a great meal here on Saturday night. We would not normally go for seafood but wanted to give here a try after hearing so many great reviews- we were definitely glad that we did!

The scallops and shellfish soup starters were both great as were the clam spaghetti and the special salmon lasagne main.

Very reasonably priced for the quality of the meal and a great selection of local ales and gins.

We'd love to return!!

Loved it great hidden treasure at the side of the Loch we went in the evening in March but summer for lunch would be amazing - we had the hot seafood selection and it was fabulous best I’ve ever had.Loved the local gin Devils Staircase - everything presented beautifully with great service. Thank You
