Efficient service, great wine, great food. I have to say though, out of the 5 Michelin Star restaurants I've been to, this one was my least favourite.

Everything was lovely. We had the Tasting menu and matched wines. Also appreciated that no service charge was imposed. Would definitely recommend it.

We had a fabulous lunch and for once, one restaurant that lives up to expectations. The reservation was made with ease, the welcome was professional and friendly, the food served with grace and pace. No course disappointed, although some better than others. Can't wait to go back!

I must admit, I've always been a bit down on Martin Wishart's restaurants. Years ago, we had a couple of pretty average experiences at his place in Leith and we were pretty underwhelmed by his restaurant in Loch Lomond. Well, last night was a massive and very pleasant surprise. Some friends had bought us a tasting menu voucher for my... More

Excellent service, lots of knowledge about the dishes, and fantastic food. We had the classic taster menu and the fish taster menu and shared each dish (something that they recommended). Brilliant idea, as we ended up trying a large variety of their dishes. The soup with cherry tomato was the most impress for me: it looked so simple and modest,... More

This was our second visit and it was just as great an experience as our first. The table was set beautifully and the service was very attentive. We had the fish tasting menu with wine flight. The total set of courses was not overwhelming as it can be at other restaurants, so it was not an effort to finish the... More

Visited with friends and had superb tasting menu with wine flight. We were seated on the table on the left as you enter the restaurant. The welcome was great, the table was set beautifully. The staff were lovely but the service not quite the standard I've had in other Michelin restaurants. The weird thing was my plate was passed across... More

7 courses and matching wine ensured the need for a walk post dinner...and what a dinner it was! Fabulous, as expected. Wonderful service, wine recommendations and the tasting menu was lovely. A delicious birthday board of chocolate treats rounded the meal of nicely!
