wanted simply to relax and have a cuppa. However directed to high tables at bar as we were not eating! £2.50 for a cup of tea perched on a bar stool watching unenthusiastic staff re setting tables was depressing. When place was empty why could we not have got a window seat to relax and enjoy a cuppa?

Dear Makevy, Thank you for your review. Due to the limited availability and extremely high demand, the tables in the restaurant at the window are unfortunately used for customers dining from our lunch menu. Hopefully you can return to Duck Bay in the near future and sample not only the wonderful views but also our delicious meals. Kind regards and... More

Many thanks to the host for fitting us in on a very busy data at the restaurant. Despite fitting us in there was never any pressure to speed us through the dinner. Three courses later we had a great Mother's Day dinner, all enjoying out starters, mains and deserts. Special mention of the warm black pudding salad, great starter. Well... More

The restaurant is overlooking Loch Lomond so you have a fantastic view. The staff were friendly and professional. The food was presented extremely well and was a good price and good quality.

Very often we have lunch at one of the Duck Bay's sister's restaurants (The Wheel House, The Loch House) and have always found the food and the service excellent. Today was no exception! We enjoyed a lovely drive to Loch Lomond in the sunshine and despite it being very busy, were lucky to get a table in the gorgeous dining... More

The Duck Bay must rate as one of the best restaurants in Scotland. The food is excellent, staff are very attentive and if your lucky enough to get a window seat you have breath taking views down the loch and if you're lucky you might be able to watch the sea plane take of and land.
