The premises appeared clean, food was delicious. Unfortunately, our server did not smile once during our entire visit and left us sitting with our bill for 10 minutes before taking payment. Surely getting the money is the most important part for a business! We may have been unlucky and service is usually much better. Even so, wouldn't recommend.

After a long walk on a dreary night which included many unsuccessful attempts at trying quite a few other recommended restaurants, we stumbled upon The Joy of Taste by pure chance! What a little gem. We were greeted by a friendly chap who sat us down straight away and made us feel very welcome. We ordered the venison and the... More

Went here with family for dinner - although at night the menu is limited or so you think it is a very well balanced menu with something pretty much for everybody and due to this I think they get the time to make outstanding food along with great service, I just cannot fault it at all.

We went there while we were visiting Inverness and we found them and we are so glad that we did. We had very a good customer service and a delicious dining experience. My husband had eaten some Bambi ( awful isn't? ) and I had the chicken as a main and for starter we had scallops and cheese tart, all... More

They squeezed us in on a busy Saturday night and we had a fabulous meal. The quality of the food is outstanding. Love the staff and a special mention for Katie from Skye 😜

It was almost like home cooking. The prices are very reasonable. The service was friendly and fast. We enjoyed lunch but the dinner menu looked great too. It is worth a visit for any meal!
