“Nice food but little pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

Had a lovely two course meal here midweek. Was still busy, which is a good sign. Couldn't fault the food - venison loin cooked perfectly. Only negatives were nutty bread - we weren't told this and partner has alergy so that could have been messy!

Food is locally sourced and cooked to perfection but would agree with other reviews the prices are steep.

“Lots went wrong but will be back.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2014

Booked a table for two for 7pm and were out of the restaurant having had two courses each by 7.35pm. Shocking. We were shown to a very nice table by the window and given menus. Drinks orders placed but not given water or bread. Mentioned this when our starter arrived 10mins later but the waitress just shrugged,
I had the seafood platter and my wife had the risotto. Both dishes were absolutely delicious! Finished our starters and were IMMEDIATELY given our main courses of Sirloin steaks. No pause, not even 1 min. The waitress did offer to give us 10 mins and take our steaks back but what would have been the point? We would have got the same ones back.
Anyhoo, they were cooked to absolute perfection. Pepper sauce was just right.
Service and attention to detail on the night was absolutely amateur at best. Quite a few empty tables so no excuse really. Food however was beautifully cooked and presented but the biggest saving grace it has to be said was Cheryl.
She listened patiently while I had my moan and she conceeded every point. She made it all better.
Beautiful Restaurant, lovely menu and wonderful food. Just an off night for some of the waitresses.
Will be back for the food and would highly reccomend this restaurant.

“Family meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

Really enjoyed a dinner here on a busy week night with my family I was up visiting. Food is equal of top city centre restaurants with reasonable prices, good wine list and prompt, friendly service. The quail starter is a must! Only slight negative is it's location, not in the hub of the village and has the look and feel of a city centre place. Will be back.

“Perfect evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

Excellent food, venison was particularly good as was the carpaccio of octopus. Service was faultless. Would recommend booking as even on a Wedneday evening the restaurant was full. Worthwhile making the trip to Strathpeffer for this alone.
