Fresh Fish at it's best.

A superb menu offering Fish at it's best. We had booked and loved it though in so saying we noticed people coming in early. Lovely position right on the Loch and we had requested a window table.

Yes, they have fresh seafood but the dishes on the whole were pretty average. Disappointing wine list. Over-priced for what they are doing.

Looking forward to some fine seafood we booked a table here. The restaurant is beautiful with a relaxed setting. Try and get a table at the window, we did not manage. We were a bit disappointed with the food. Nothing bad about it, it just wasn't exceptional in any way. For this food we consider the price and claim a... More

Had a recommendation on this place whilst staying in Fort William. We weren't fortunate to get one of the tables around the perimeter windows nearest to the Loch. We were expecting so much more in terms of originality, choice and presentation on the fish dishes. £17 for salmon potato and beans. Nearly £8 for a thin sliver of cake for... More

Went for dinner here during the week, and we both had three courses. Nice atmosphere in the restaurant, food was average, service was so-so, and it was quite expensive to boot. Wasn't overly impressed, and won't be back.

We dined here on the last night of our Highlands holiday, and what a lovely ending! Food was delicous, portions were generous and staff were very friendly. We were a party of 6, two are vegetarians whom the restuarant were happy to cater for (they even put an extra veggie option on the menu as we called ahead to see... More

We loved our evening meal in this quirky restaurant. Had a table by the window and could watch the setting sun over the loch and the hills to the west. The food was delightful and the menu choice varied enough for all tastes.

What a hidden gem. We visited FW in Feb, it was like a ghost town everywhere was tourist free. I tried to book the Lemon Tree but they were closed for refurb and recommended The Crannog. We were not disappointed. It was heaving with people and warm form the log burners. Friendly staff with a great sense of humour, there... More
