Nice fresh seafood with a good variety of specials on the board. If you are lucky to get a window seat, there are beautiful views of the loch.

With a unique location, right on the side of Loch Linnhe, the restaurant offers stunning views of the Loch and surrounding mountains to those patrons lucky enough to get a window seat. This is a very popular place, we tried to get a reservation for the day of our arrival but had to wait until the following day for a... More

Apart from the dated decor and old fashioned menu, I had a relatively pleasant meal. The problems started after I got back to the bnb. I knew the oysters didn't taste fresh but the affects were more adverse than I expected. 'Projectile' is a word that could be used. I broke my golden rule of never eating fish on a... More

Advised by our B & B, we set out on a walk to try and beat the crowd which we did as we noted subsequent arrivals were turned away. Now to the food, all was very good , served in good time and perfectly prepared. I highly recommend the Oysters cold and with a great salty liquor.
