We have been coming to Riverside lodges for a number of years now and have always said that we must try this fish restaurant, well we have now and we were not disappointed. The food was just absolutely gorgeous, service second to none. We will be back to sample its offerings well worth a visit.

Had Dinner here a few days ago; the food was excellent, I especially loved the Chocolate-Orange Cheesecake for dessert. The staff was very friendly as well and although prices were no bargain I consider them reasonable.

Having seen the small menu on offer we decided to visit this restaurant based on the fact they advertise a specials board. We were therefore disappointed to find that the specials board was very limited and when I did try to order off it, many of the options had already sold out. The staff apologised and explained that they had... More

We stayed couple of nights in Fort William and went here for dinner because of the good reviews on Tripadvisor. But we where disappointed. The food was ok, but for this kind of price nothing special and also the little bit of bread you need to pay extra for more. It's a nice place at the water but we found... More

Lovely setting and great seafood or steaks. Interesting art on the walls. Three courses with some beers and a couple of bottles of wine. £55 per head.

We'd researched this restaurant from home and were not disappointed. Very attractive restaurant interior on a stormy day with welcoming wood burner. We were looked after by Sarah-Louise who could not have been more friendly and charming. I chose a simple meal of baked cod served on parsley mash with pesto and for pudding a plain chocolate brownie with heather... More
