Dinner on Friday to celebrate a birthday. A warm welcome and an area to have a drink first and study the menu - choosing was difficult as the choices all look good.

We went for dinner on a Sunday night after a very long day of driving. The restaurant was warm and welcoming and we enjoyed a drink before dinner in the separate bar. We were ushered to our table and then given a complimentary small soup which was delicious! All our meals were very tasty and a good size, and the... More

Four of us enjoyed a delicious dinner with impeccable service at Russell's. The welcome and ambience were a great complement to the superb meal. You definitely need to book, it would be a great shame to miss out on a great gourmet experience. The best in the Highlands on our recent holiday.

Six of us ate in the restaurant. Flood was excellent with a great choice. Robert and his staff looked after us very well. Well worth a visit if in the debates.

We had read other reviews before dining here so had high expectations that were more than matched. We can understand why you need to book in advance and strongly recommend that you do so. We were a group of 9 with varied tastes and as a result sampled a range of the menu options and we all agreed that this... More

The menu is well designed to cover most tastes and gives a good interpretation of Scottish flavour. Melts in your mouth - the quality of food is excellent.

We saw this "Restaurant with Rooms " while driving south to Fort William. We booked in and the room was superb. Then we were able to order dinner and that also was excellent. The furnishings are very tasteful and there are extra treats like the mini soup with compliments of the chef.
