Burnt sticky toffee pudding

My second experience of this restaurant was not good. My friend and I both thought the customer service wasn't good and we got burnt puddings which we returned and the second pudding came back burnt and the waiter did not acknowledge this. I will NOT be returning!

My starter (chicken liver pate served with ciabatta bread and a salad) was shocking. The pate was average, but I've had better from Tesco's finest range. The bread was hard at... More

Decided to come here for lunch with a friend as the menu outside appeared very good value with lots of choice. The first thing we noticed was that every single member of staff was Polish and were whispering away to each other in Polish which we found quite rude. We were then shown to our table. All the tables are... More

My friend and I went to that restaurant and both of us are still regretting it! The place could look really classy, but it's over-pretentious for no reason! We ordered what was called

visited here twice in the last 3 days. on our first visit we were seated but never given a menu so had to ask for one. I forgave this as people forget and the older waiter who bought us the menu was friendly and polite. The first waitress was friendly and took our drinks order. The second waitress was rather...

Located right next to the train station in central Inverness. Varied menu very reasonable prices. Also it's only about 2 blocks from the bus station. Can recommend the pasta and the lamb shank.

walked in and was stared at by three of the six working Sunday night. None move or acknowledged us, not even a smile. Someone came out of the back and seated us. He clearly did want to be there. This was what it was like there. 14-16 tables, 4 were used and we couldn't get good service. Everywhere else was... More
