We had reservations for 26 of us. We pre-ordered and could not believe how beautiful the food was, and it was delicious! It is right around the corner from Premier Inn. Its small, so make sure you make reservations. The only negative is that most restaurants would give our bus driver a meal. They did not.

Looks like nothing from the outside - perched above a Tennants pub - but it fills up quickly and for good reasons - the food and service are way better than its exterior might suggest. Nice atmosphere, no views, but that's not what you go there for. Busy nights, you might want to book.

Amazingly good food here. Lunches all very reasonable at 6.25 per main course dinner gets slightly more expensive but it becomes a better class of dining. Great portion sizes for both lunch and dinner Been a few times now and not had a bad meal yet.

This family oriented restaurant with Scottish food has a very diverse menu. The description of the hamburgers looked very appealing, and we were not disappointed. Charming atmosphere. Wait service good enough.

This restaurant is a wonderful place to dine. The location is great and the food is awesome. It is a little pricey, but you are definitely getting what you pay for! The restaurant is small, so make reservations. My only compliant is we brought a group of 27, well reserved in advance and had a 3 course meal for everyone.... More

My sister had researched restaurants for a trip to Inverness and found this one as it seemed to have the type of food our family would like. We had a rough idea of where urquharts was but it wasn't terribly obvious from the street. It is up a flight of stairs which almost thew us as my mum walks with... More

I visited Urquhart's Restaurant for an evening meal with My Wife, my daughter and a friend. I had been told it was a good place to eat, but this was far from the truth.... It was excellent. The place is bright and comfortable and you are not squashed in. The restaurant was very busy, but the two waitresses were doing... More

Off the beaten path by only one block, you will miss it unless you know it's there. Small restaurant recommended by our inkeeper as "the locals' favorite place to eat". Diverse menu at reasonable prices. Everything from fish and chips to salmon with lobster cream sauce, or melt-in-your-mouth steak. Don't miss the dessert menu, either. NOTE: Make reservations!!! Most restaurants... More
