We were lucky to get the last free table, altough we hadn't reserved before. The service was very nice. Our meals (scallops, duck, pasta and a great toffee pudding) were very tasty and remarkable. The vine was good as well. All in all a great evening, we felt very comfortable there. I recommend to reserve a table before you're going... More

My better half and I went two nights in a row. The staff were great, food very good. Highly recommended. An easy walk from the B &B district. We had salmon (twice), lamb and steak with a wonderful blue cheese sauce. The lemon tart was very good; a beautiful balance of flavour, tart and sweetness. This is a small, intimate... More

We've eaten here several times over the years while visiting Inverness. It was taken over a couple of years ago and we've seen a big improvement all round. Lovely welcome from pleasant staff who were very kind and attentive when my husband managed to accidently knock his drink over as soon at it was served. Menu was varied and all... More

It did get much busier as were were dining but the service was very attentive throughout and the waitresses working the floor really were fantastic. I liked the small touches, water already waiting for you at your table and the... More

Delicious, fresh, well prepared food served by friendly & efficient staff in comfortably surroundings. We were fortunate to get the window table with the river view but I think that the other tables might have been a bit close together. Halibut and shellfish was SO good & my husband enjoyed his veggie dishes. Chef's mixed veg was a wonderfully colourful... More

Visited this evening (30/8) for a post holiday treat.. We are local to Inverness and had heard good things about this Restaurant, so chose to give it a go. First things first, the room is small, very small... This can be quite intimate, I would guess, but I found it a little bit cramped. Food wise, Starter for myself (Scallops)... More

we popped in for a bite for lunch, and were glad we did! The food was good and well presented. Lunch for five people came to £37, which was reasonable for what we had.
