More than a Scottish fry up very busy which says a lot about the place had the Sunday roast dinner. The addition of fresh local vegetable with butter poured over added to the meal will return tonight to try the regular menu which looks good

We arrived at our B&B in Inverness without a reservation to any of the local restaurants and were told we needed them especially because it was Father’s day Sunday. We decided to give The waterfront a try on the recommendation that we might be able to get in. We were not disappointed. We did go early, about 4pm or so... More

Until I ate the food, I thought I was lucky to get dinner here, it's pitched somewhere between a pub and a restaurant and is busy. There are good things about it, service is efficient and friendly and the food nicely presented and not overpriced - but it's pub grub rather than good food. My eye was attracted to monkfish...

I had dinner with my daughter here tonight. I would recommend that you book if possible or in advance. We did not know it would as busy as it was. However, the staff were excellent and suggested a drink at the bar whilst we waited approximately 20 minutes. They keep an eye on everything and were an impressive team. The... More

I did book a table for this restaurant and I was glad that I did. It was fully booked! We ordered the fish and chips, they came in paper like a real chippy, along with a bowl of side salad and tartare sauce, it was lovely. Good value for money and the staff great fun, efficient and friendly. Couldn't really... More
