I have been coming here since ending the Great Glen Way at the Castle in 2005, realised then that this restaurant offers unparalleled views to the castle and down to the river Ness, the last visit just prior to Halloween 2014 proved every bit as fulfilling as all previous visits. My good lady and I had the gammon and venison... More

What a lovely place, with tremendous staff, but needing to take better care of the food! The food used to be so amazing. Seems to be cheap & cheerful.

Been visiting for years. You cant get better or more friendly staff and the food is very nice with good portion sizes. The prices however are too expensive.

I have been a customer here for years but sadly won't bother again. The place has been going down hill steadily. unfriendly service, food plonked down within minutes of ordering which make you wonder about the lack of careful preparation. sadly won't return.

Have been eating in the Castle restaurant since the early seventies and to date this is still the best for quality, quantity and value. The staff and management are always polite and friendly. Highly recommended

I had a lunch at this restaurant and enjoyed it. The decor is a bit dated but it is usually busy as the food is in healthy sized portions and is reasonably priced.

The food at the restaurant is amazing and the staff in incredibly friendly. A must visit and with a price very affordable. Make reservation for dinner otherwise you may have to wait a while as it's always full.

This is sort of a classic old-style eating place. The service was friendly and relatively fast and the prices somewhat reasonable (I wouldn't say cheap but OK for a sit-down, full-service restaurant). No real atmosphere unless you enjoy a retro look. However, when we visited (on an October Thursday night), they were out of haddock (1st choice) and salmon (2nd... More

Any time we visit Inverness it has to be the Castle Restaurant for lunch and the battered fish. I've worked all over Britain in the last 18 months and there isn't a fish as good as this anywhere else.
