“coffee and snack”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

although very modern this restaurant was a really comfy spacious well placed venue for a snack or light meal....something of the atmosphere of a ''great hall'' from mediaeval times transported in to the modern day...excellent service, calm happy place for visitors child and dog friendly but very ok for couples and other visitors....all ages hang out there polite happy people who obviously love Kenmore!

“Hit or miss!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Have visited this restaurant on a good few occasions and as the title says it's a bit of a hit and miss! We have had breakfast here and the staff were great and the food was good....but another afternoon we waited so long to be served (staff ignored us) that eventually we left!!! But popped in the other day for a coffee and the staff were attentive and pleasant so may try another "meal" visit soon....

“Delicious breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

This restaurant is in an amazing spot of Scotland, in Kenmore at the head of loch Tay
Lovely modern surroundings and pleasant staff.
We had breakfast here and were delighted with what we got. Although pricey it's worth eating here.

“A disappointing return.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

My husband and I ate here some eighteen months ago and remembered having quite a good meal. Sadly, the experience was not repeated when we ate here on the 17th of April. Our waitress was a very friendly girl and gave us a warm welcome. However , the food was absolutely abysmal. I had Lamb Madras and it was obviously a re-heat. The dish was rather congealed with more potato than lamb. My husband had belly pork and received a two inch oblong of rather chewy meat with crackling that had no crunch at all and could have broken teeth, if eaten.The pork was served with luke warm, rather dried up noodles. I asked for decaff. coffee and the waitress mixed the cups up and I inadvertently drank the ordinary one. I was awake for a lot of the night with an upset stomach and do not know if it was the coffee or the curry. We complained about the meal and we were offered a drink but we declined as we just wanted to leave the retaurant.

“Awful”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Really poor service at lunchtime recently. Food was poor particularly what was described as the homemade pizza and extremely expensive. Staff were friendly and good with the children but all we wanted was a quick lunch which took 25 minutes to order and another 25 minutes for it to arrive.

We’re sorry you were disappointed with your recent lunch at The Courtyard. Our pizzas are made on the premises to order and therefore may take some time to prepare and cook. Customer feedback is important to our operation in order that we can make improvements where necessary, thank you for taking the time to submit a review.
