Our last evening in Inverness and a bit of a disappointment. I had the chicken livers as a starter, they were very nice. For our mains we both had the meatballs with pasta, I found them a little disappointing, not enough flavour and could have been hotter. We ordered panna cotta for desert and were served crème caramel. We ordered... More

I recently enjoyed a meal here with a friend, it's a really nice setting. Service was fine although we were slightly rushed at the end of the meal by our waiter. I had a mozzarella starter which was okay- served with fruit coulis which I thought a bit odd! Nice pizza for a main course. My friend had meat balls... More

We sat outside because it was full inside and the tables were dirty and small. There was nothing special about the food and the servers almost never came out of the restaurant so we had trouble getting more water and utensils when we needed them. It might have been better if we were able to sit inside.

The staff at Culloden House recommended this restaurant in town. It sits on the outskirts of the pedestrian only section so be aware that your GPS might take you to a non-parking area. (We ended up parking in the Eastgate Shopping Centre which had tons of parking available.) Anyway, the place was pretty busy (it's not all that big) but... More

We booked here for the dinner on the last night of our Scottish holiday, and we weren't disappointed. We got a warm welcome from friendly and attentive staff. The food was delicious - hot, tasty, and prompt service. The waiter helped us choose dessert and encouraged us to share. I'm a vegetarian and had plenty of choice. Highly recommended.

Really enjoyable meals and good service despite being very busy every time we ate there. Within walking distance of where we were staying and best option for reasonably priced eating in and around the town centre.

We ate here as we are staying nearby. We had expected the run of the mill Italian restaurant but were pleasantly surprised by the service and delicious food. The wine we choose was excellent and the pizza was very flavorful. All in all we would return for a second visit if we could.

Very small and overheated but fun Italian and Portuguese staff. Food good and similar to what one would get in Italy. Ok inexpensive wine list. A fun dining experience.

We ate here a few weeks ago so decided to book a table on Saturday 10th. It was busy as usual and the atmosphere was really good but the food was very disappointing. I had the special seafood risotto which was bland and my partner had calzone which was filled with bolognese! Will definitely not be back and wouldn't recommend.... More
