After organising a meal out for 6 last night at the Moorings our date happened to coincide with a two for one meal offer and boy did it show with the quality and portions. The salmon portion was of sardine proportion and the tomato and mushroom of dubious quality, the mashed potatoes were almost cold on one plate and the... More

Good Afternoon, I am extremely disappointed to hear you had such a bad experience in our Bistro Restaurant. Our food quality should be the same regardless if there is an offer on or not. I have passed on your review to our Head Chef to ensure this doesn't happen again. We would love the chance to show you that was... More

The food was absolutely amazing and worth every penny, would definately come back. Service was friendly, unobtrusive and could not do enough for us. Really enjoyed ourselves.

Popped in here for a spot of lunch on our way back from Ben Nevis. Food was good, friendly staff and reasonable prices too. We had salmon and cream cheese pannini with chips. Portions were of a good size too.

After a short walk from our B & B, we had a very nice meal at this hotel restaurant which was next to Neptune's Staircase.

More like a shark with chips. The food is fabulous, the fish is huge. I had a great burger and all the portions are very generous. the staff are friendly and the bistro cafe has great views of the canal and Ben Nevin. I would highly recommend a visit for lunch

Called to make possible reservation and ask if they had table for 4, and was it possible to bring the dog, yes was the answer if you eat in the bar. We were quickly seated in the bar and asked for our order promptly. The fist course arrived very quickly, the haggis was just warmed but was very tasty, again... More

We decided to eat in the hotel restaurant as we did not want to travel to far. We were not disappointed, the menu, food, and staff all perfect for our evening meal.

Had dinner here with my partner and parents during a recent stay in Banavie (see other review for recommendation on the rental property). Food was great and the portions were big (probably bit too big for me, but I had some help!) Friendly staff. Would like to have another visit during daylight hours as there's a lovely looking terrace that... More
