“disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

was given a gift of a spa day plus lunch. thought the pool was cold and the dressing rooms far too warm. then went for lunch. given wrong cutlery - not much to complain about but then had to ask three times for our drinks which took about 20 mins to arrive. then asked for bill. only had to ask for this twice & got the wrong one which was approximately 3 times the amount due. view was lovely. food was good but disappointed in service. proceeded to cameron house & was blown away by the service. they need to take a leaf out of their books.

“Perfect setting and superb Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Great service, great food, great setting................... try the scallops there to die for. we have friends who have a boat moored at Cameron house, so we were looking forward to a day on the boat and a meal at night, we weren't disappointed, absolutely superb from start to finish, exactly what you would expect from the Cameron house, and 20% discount if you have a boat moored at the marina. cant wait to go again!!!

“What a lovely setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

My husband took me here after an unusual early finish at work on a bank holiday.. Weather was lovely which complimented the setting on the banks of Loch Lomond.. Staff very efficient and attentive. A little pricey but with the setting and the good food, you only get what you pay for...

“Lovely setting, confused Staff!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

Family outing for lunch at the Boathouse on a busy Bank holiday weekend. There were no tables available inside apparently however there were lots of empty seats, no problem as it was a lovely day so we sat outside at a wobbly table.
The menu has some interesting dishes, especially seafood. In reality the food was very average though for what was a £35 per head lunch.
Service wasn't brilliant, the Staff brought the wrong drinks and plates to our table on several occasions and failed to bring the correct drinks order.
There are lots of other restaurants in the area so next time we'll try somewhere else.

“Snail service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Party of eight, not too demanding, our meal took ages to arrive but although the service was slow it was just acceptable. The food was very good. The wine/bar service however was absolutely awful. 30 minutes for beers and wine to arrive pre dinner and even then it was wrong. Luckily we were not in a hurry but our host was embarrassed by the snails pace service. If they served faster they would serve more!!
