Sitting in the bay window of the lounge which has the feeling of a bygone era where we were given a a selection of sandwiches, scones and cakes with a choice of teas looking out onto the Torridon Hills on a beautiful sunny day with staff looking after our every need it was a very enjoyable afternoon.

The Torridon Hotel Restaurant offers posh food and service. Pre-dinner complimentary canapé was a unique version of haggis, 'neeps and tattoos. Dinner is a prix fixe menu with two offerings for each course. The started was a pureed broccoli aspic that reminded me of baby food. We had the lamb which was perfectly cooked, tender and lean. Dessert was a... More

My partner and I stayed at the Torridon last week for one night, and having read rave reviews about the restaurant, we also booked ourselves in for dinner, expecting the dining experience of the year. I should probably point out that we live in Guernsey and frequently visit London and are therefore used to being spoilt for dining choices, so... More

A set menu with only two choices for main course. The other courses apart from pudding are take it or leave it. The main course is small, no vegetables and style over substance. I'm not looking for massive portions and yes I understand presentation but when does presentation override everything? Could I eat in this restaurant in the hotel all... More

Food was awful, overpriced and completely bored by the incessant need to describe every morsel of food on the plate before you are allowed to eat it. Credit us with some sense, we can read a menu we don't need to be read war and peace before we eat it

Thank you for your review. So pleased you enjoyed the room and location. You do appear to have a problem with the restaurant service which we understand will not be to everyone's liking. However, if it meant that much to you or you had to do was politely ask the team to refrain from their short explanations as you were... More

We stayed at the hotel almost 19 years ago and paid a visit to the restaurant (mid-winter both times) less than a year ago. Retains an element of artificial class and fine dining which is below par when compared with spanish, italian or french equivalents. Overdressed, cute, rediscovering 'mediterranean of the north'. Very suitable for romantic liaisons or escapades. The... More
