Family up from Edinburgh who have dined here before and was the place they chose to visit again. Disappointed this time due to the attitude of a member of staff. When asked what drinks we would like we were given the option of large or small. We had noticed the cans of juice (which we could see on display )... More

As usual the service was swift and pleasant. The food is good and plentiful. It's a nice old fashioned place. If you're in a hurry you can be in, fed, and out again well within half an hour.

A hungry mans place. Big platefuls of all time favourites. Just honest food. Ask any local you know, or find someone who knows a local.

Ever since I moved to Inverness and came across it, the Castle Restaurant is one of my main places to grab a bite. The service is good and the food very good, like you mum used to make. Never had a bad meal yet. Think I might go again today.

We ate here on a Saturday evening about 5pm. The visual aspect of the Castle Restaurant isn't that modern. It's more like a bus station cafe. However the food is really nice. We had one steak pie with chips and one lamb steak with mashed potatoes. The only small complaint was that the lamb meal was dry. It would have... More
