Amazing views of the Loch and good service. Unfortunately the food was disappointing and not what I was expecting for the style of the restaurant.

Food is fine considering there aren't too many options nearby. But Turkish food in the Highlands? Was a bit of a strange menu....

during a weeks holiday in the highland club it seemed almost rude not to try this restaurant. We had read good reviews and looked forward to trying the varied menu. First alarm bells should have rang when we walked past 3 of the kitchen and waiting staff smoking at the rear of the building. We selected a seat outside, popped... More

We popped by following previous reviews from trip advisor. Great setting and decor and a nice varied menu. Fast and friendly service and very good food! Set on the edge of the loch with great views too.

The food was great, flavoursome and fresh, a great place for a bite to eat. Staff very welcoming and efficient. Also a nice spot to have a drink at the tables outside if the weather allows.... More

The restaurant is located by the Loch Ness. Building is shaped like a boat house, the window tables have a great view. Probably best to make a reservation, I was there at 18 on friday night, and had to finish by 1930 because it was reserved already. I had grilled chicken with haggis and vegetables, it was really good. Waiters... More

What a fantastic find! The walk down to this place was lovely, and easy enough to find. We were early on Friday evening so managed to get a table by the window with stunning views over Loch Ness. Service was quick and friendly and the food was exceptional. We had Turkish sausage and spicy fish cakes for starters and then... More
