We thought the food and service were very good but it wasn't what we had come to expect in our travels around Scotland. Only a so-so value.

My sister and I ate here the night before we started our walk on the GGW. It was a delicious meal with generous portions!! We shared the mussel starter (a good idea as it was huge), I had the langostines for a main and my sister had the scallops and pork belly. Could not say enough good things about the... More

Really nice fish restaurant. Hard to fault the food. The service was a little haphazard, but suited us as it was the start of our hols and we were very relaxed and revelling in our forthcoming travels.

Simply fabulous. Great location, friendly staff, glorious menu (seek out the langoustines if you care for them) broad yet good value drinks list. Altogether, a really nice experience. Think probably that reservations are a must, especially if you're not in Fort William for long. A major highlight of our trip

Fabulous choice on the menu. Food is fresh and very mouth watering. The chef is very creative and the desserts are to die for. Can be a bit pricy however, well worth a visit if you are looking for a nice meal in Fort William. Staff are very pleasant and attentive.

I can't begin to describe how fresh and flavorful their mussels are. The garlic and cream sauce was superb and the bread had crispy crust and hot out of the oven. Well worth the 4400 mile trip.

Such a great experience. Enough said. My parents thought it was going to be fish and chips. Alas they tasted something wonderful. Enough said.

Being italian and living on the sea I was really interested in eating fish in Scotland. I was not disappointed at all! Great recipes, they have a sauce made with capers which is worth all the miles I had to travel. Everything is good, mussels, haddock, catch of the day.... I suggest to buy the ticket for cruise and lunch,... More

Fab fish restaurant !!! The staff were very helpful and friendly. My young son and I thoroughly enjoyed the view from the conservatory dining area. The views are to die for at sunset. Our three courses were all spectacular and we can't wait to go back one day.
