We enjoyed breakfast and dinner at this restaurant. The views of the lake and mountains from the dining room are magical.

very nice menu with lots on it to choose from. If you're not a fish lover though might be a bit disappointing for you.

We had dinner here two nights running, my husband had the same food each night which says it all! The food was excellent and good value, why this restaurant is only no18 in Fort William is beyond me. Its well worth the short trip outside of the town. Beautiful setting and outstanding food.

Beautifully cooked and great service and fabulous location. Not often you get a proper chef who knows how to cook meat and fish and prepare imaginative deserts but this place can do it. Just pre-warn them if you have fussy children!

We visited the Letterfinlay last year and it was really good, food and service excellent. This time we visited we took a 90 year old man who said that the fish was the worst he had tasted in fact there was no taste. We would have complained at the time but the waitress was very unapproachable and made us feel... More

Last - and first visit for many years - was in June for lunch and we were delighted. This time we had dinner and it was every bit as good as anticipated. Friendly service, an extensive menu and beautifully presented delicious food. Lovely views from the restaurant but the infamous midges put a stop to eating outside on the terrace... More
