Our dinner here was good, the service was attentive, but nothing special. We did learn, the hard way, that it is absolutely necessary to book a restaurant in Inverness if you don't want to eat dinner from the supermarket. We made our reservation 4 days in advance and had a limited choice of times.

Good food but nothing fancy with good portions. Centrally located and a friendly pleasant staff. Minimal wine list.

This restaurant accepts children of all ages but it is located on the 1st floor so you must bring your pram up the stairs. The staff were very accomodating and provided excellent service. The decor is very unpretentious with the focus being on homecooked food. I had a delicious goat cheese salad starter. My main was the gammon steak served... More

This was our first visit to this restaurant and we were not disappointed. We visited on a Sunday evening and were surprised to find that on the specials board they were offering Sunday roast beef dinner. This proved to be a good choice - tasty beef, roasts, and vegetables cooked to perfection. The staff were very friendly and attentive. We... More

Hard to believe it's voted the 5th best restaurant in Inverness on trip advisor to be honest ... The Menu is quite extensive, however they should maybe focus on doing fewer dishes better. There was nothing wrong with the food but it was far from exceptional or exciting. The two young waitresses were extremely disinterested, a shame really.

Booked a table for 6pm and glad we did. Not the largest floor space, and people regularly turned away. Opening time allegedly 6pm, but on arrival found two groups already into their meals, suggesting it opened at at least 5.30. Food is wholesome and filling - large helpings without any pretentions to being trendy or poncey. The only criticism we... More

Whenever I visit Inverness one of the first things I would do is make a reservation for this restaurant. The food is rather excellent and the choice is so good that no one should be disappointed. The one minuspoint is that, particulary in Summer, the place tends to rather overheat.

We often pop up to Inverness for a day out - It's a very leisurely city with good shops and several good restaurants. We've tried quite a few of them and the standard of food in Inverness is very high, but my favourite is Urquhart's. The lunchtime menu is quite extensive and everything we've tried has been fantastic. We were... More
