“Great nostalgic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

I have been going to castle restaurant since I was a young boy and nothing has changed, which I love. I suppose if you are new to this place, you would be thinking, what's so great about it, as it's not much to look at and it would be compared mostly to a greasy spoon cafe. But I don't care that the decor, food and service hasn't changed in over 30 years, for me it's still a brilliant place to get some good family grub. The service is always quick, and they do the best sausage egg and chips ever, oh and I love their curry and chips. It's all each to their own and for me this place is the wee gem of inverness's history.

“Best value in Inverness”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014

Great family restaurant. Inverness wouldn't be the same without the Castle Restaurant. Food always delicious, plentiful and hot. Service is quick by very pleasant staff. Prices are reasonable compared with other eating places in town. Always happy to return here.

“Never changes. Always good hot food with fast service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

No matter what time of day or evening you go to eat here you are guaranteed a very large plate of hot food. Waiting time is very short and the staff are always friendly and helpful. Good plain food, hot and plenty of it. Not expensive either.

“Fabulous meal as always”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

We visited here like we do every year, just before going to Panto. Super kid friendly menu, and the kitchen very easily adapts to a fussy child!

Service both from waiting staff and from in the kitchen is very fast!

I had the sinfully Sausage, Bacon Egg and chips!, my husband had the chicken curry with chips and rice (My favourite curry!) My son had Sausage, egg and chips and my daughter had chicken nuggets (homemade!) chips and beans. 3 drinks and a tea came to around £31

“cheap and cheerful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014 via mobile

not the best food you will ever taste, but great value for money, quick service and a decent menu.
Old fashioned and does what it should!
