We were very impressed with this little gem of a restaurant. Serves excellent, well cooked and great quality food at very reasonable prices. For certain, you won't leave hungry. It's a really quirky place which is just what we like. Eclectic but not at all pretentious. Food, service and atmosphere were spot on and a credit to the Highlands (... More

My wife had sole - two full sides of sole. I had haddock - two full sides of haddock - no sweet!! What great value. It is better to book especially for parties of four or more. The experienced staff are very good - the younger trainees need more guidance.

What a FABULOUS little restaurant! Eyecatching in its unusual style of decoration, but the food . . out of this world. We wanted only a light lunch during our travelling, so simply ordered a 'starter' of smoked salmon with brown bread and salad garnish - my goodness! The generous portions that we were presented with were more like a main... More

We were not disappointed, so much food!! The fish was fresh and succulent, the best I've had... More

Whilst on holiday this wee gem of a place was recommended to us, we decided to go along one night for a meal. I'm not a fan of fish and chips but decided to give it a try. Would highly recommend the fish tea, delicious haddock in a nice crispy batter which wasn't greasy served with chips, peas, bread and... More

We had read about this in a guide book and were not disappointed. Retro menu, the Chicken Maryland and Gammon Steaks were amazing and the fish delicious. Very huge portions at very small prices. If you like a lot to eat, go here.
