My Wife, Son and I stopped in for some lunch when we were up in Inverness. What a great surprise to find such wonderful food out by the famous Loch Ness! We had not booked and were taken aback at how full the restaurant was at lunchtime but were lucky to grab a table in the small Bar, as some... More

This is the only place I choose to eat in Inverness, knowing it will be a consistently great meal. We both had ribeye steaks, which were cooked to perfection and accompanied by homemade chips. I have said in previous reviews that frozen chips were the one letdown so great to see handout chips which steps it up for me. We... More

Great spot on the shores of Loch Ness. Beautiful views and a nice glass of wine in the garden overlooking the loch at sunset. Quaint restaurant with excellent seafood. Highly recommend.

I go here now and again when we have people to stay. The food is always good, and the service is always friendly. They are very popular in summer with all the tourists as right beside Loch Ness, so booking then is advised. The place is always clean, and facilities are good. As for prices i always find it value... More

We've eaten here many times and the food has always been fab. If going with kids take some bread for the ducks and there is a small park opposite.

Dores Inn is now one of my local restaurants. We have had lunch and dinner there. The food is excellent in terms of quality and value. Great range of specials as well as variety on the Menul soft drinks are also reasonably priced (my hubbie and I don't drink) Staff are friendly and attentive. My only comment would be -... More

A lovely little pub set in the most stunning setting looking over Loch Ness. Car park is adjacent next to pub and it was very busy. Great access to the beach at Loch Ness. Nice picnic benches to enjoy your drink taking in all the views. Wish we had had more time to eat here. Even the outside toilets were... More
