I was taking a break from the Ottawa Fringe Festival and I was looking for a quick meal between shows. I'm gluten intolerant and I have to be cautious. The service was fairly quick and I chose a New York steak. The server said that it could be made gluten free by not using their regular steak spice. I normally... More

The pub is in a very convenient location and has a nice decor. I took the sharing portion of nachos for 2 and it was a very big plate with more than enough nachos. To top it off, I was glad to find a large selection of scotches and all kinds of beer. I definitely recommend if you are in... More

Everything is Scottish here from the kilts the wait staff, both male and female, wear to the decor. They have fun facts about Scotland all over and it is a real pub atmosphere. Friendly with pretty good food. I had the fish and chips and for the first time I didn't have to have coleslaw with it! All was good.... More

From the minute we walked in, the staff were very hospitable and quick to serve our food. They seemed in high spirits which makes eating that this place enjoyable. The food was very good. Had the fish and chips. Batter was a little dry, but above normal standards. Food helpings were excellent for the cost. Highly recommended

Walked out of Irish pub next door due to lack of service and into the Highlander. Great decision: great service, great food, great atmosphere! A winning decision.

I don't know what restaurant Marjo210 was at on the 23rd of May, but it sure wasn't this place ! There were six of us for dinner on the Saturday night before the race. The waiter was very helpful with suggestions, and went out of his way to provide Vegan options. We all left with full bellys and smiles on... More

Today we went to this Scottish restaurant expecting the standard pub food. We were very pleased to find out that ech of our plates was expertly prepared and presented. Whether it was the fish and chips or the Black Angus Roast Beef sandwich or the striploin steak each dish was flavourful and presented with a uniquely Scottish twist. The service... More
