Wonderful Seafood! Must try the Cullen Skink!

We ate here three times during our one week stay in Fort William. We come from a seaport and yet have never had such delicious seafood. The Cod! The Haddock! The Mussels in Cream Sauce!

Fantastic seafood! The restaurant overlooks the loch. In the evening, it's the perfect place for a romantic dinner... The restaurant has its own fishing boats! Truly excellent restaurant, and the staff are brilliant!

We ordered the seafood platter. It was ok but was on an endless bed of muscles. There were hardly any cockles and no prawns. It consisted of 2 crab claws and 2 langoustines. Not worth the 70 pounds per couple wish we had of chosen something else. We were going to dress up for the occasion but glad we didn't... More

This restaurant is amazing, with a wonderful view over the loch. The staff are very efficient and friendly. The choice from the menu depends on the local catch, but there is always a great choice and of excellent quality. We ate there twice. The mussels are out of this world. The view from the ladies loo is amazing. You can... More

The food and service were outstanding and this restaurant must also have one of the best views from a ladies loo! Overall the restaurants in Fort William were disappointing but this one would be worth going out of your way for.

Family of four ate here, we all had different meals and each of us thoroughly enjoyed what we ate. We all had 3 courses, all of which were absolutely delicious. I had the Halibut with risotto off the specials menu which was fantastic. The staff were very efficient and polite and the ambience of the restaurant was great. I definitely... More
