Chanterelle Kinkell is an exciting new restaurant for the Black Isle, run by two young local chefs, Lynsey and Laurie.
We prepare delicious lunches, afternoon teas and evening meals, using high-quality local produce, served in a relaxed environment by our friendly staff.
The restaurant’s dining room enjoys spectacular views of the Cromarty Firth, Ben Wyvis and the stunning mountains of Strathconon. On a clear evening you can take in the beautiful sunset over the distant hills.
Our food brings together the best of classic and contemporary Scottish fare, while also offering a delicious selection of vegetarian, gluten-free and dairy-free dishes.
Our lunch menu is perfect for those who want a quick bowl of homemade soup, but also offers some classic favourites like Black Isle Beer Battered Haddock and Spicy Vegetarian Mixed Bean Burger.
Afternoon tea at Chanterelle Kinkell is a treat, and includes tasty savoury snacks such as homemade sausage rolls and choux buns stuffed with herb cream cheese, as well as homemade cakes, scones and pastries.
Our evening menu is inspired by the wealth of beautiful food produce on our doorstep. We use meat from our local butchers in Dingwall and fish from John Taylor in Portsoy.
