A lovely, quirky restaurant

I found this restaurant thanks to TripAdvisor and was not disappointed. It is a genuine family-run spot with gourmet-class food. I'm very glad that we went and would not hesitate to recommend it.

We were staying in Inverness for a few nights, and I used Trip Advisor to find this little place. I thought it sounded fantastic, good traditional food. The gentleman who served us (the chef's son) was lovely, really warm and friendly. If my review was purely based upon him, this would be an excellent review not terrible. When I was... More

We ate lunch here at the beginning of August, what a gem of a find. The food was amazing; the starters of Langoustines and Scallops are a must. Nothing was too much bother for the staff, and they even supplied books for my little boy. Would recommend this highly for eating out, although I would recommend booking if you wish... More

Had a fantastic meal here with the family, the food was reasonably priced and probably the best I have had in a restaurant. It is Nice to see a real family run establishment serving top quality food with great service, I look forward to returning in the future.

Had a fantastic meal while on holiday, the butternut squash casserole was delicous and the whiskey and chocolate cheese cake is one of the best desserts i've tasted! Highly recommended!

We booked the restaurant based on the TA reviews and they were surely right. The location seems a little bit "bizarre" (a small house in the middle of an anonymous road containing a shop and a post office) but the quality of the food and the outstanding service is something we will never forget. We had a very delicious fish... More

Most roadside restaurants in a tourist area are bad. This is the opposite, it looks like any other tourist trap but inside you get perfect service from a guy that seems to love his work. And the food is great!

Stop at this little restaurant for a wee snack, ended up having a three course meal. Could not fault it! Staff were very friendly, will definitely be back and will be recommending this to my friends and family.
