Good atmosphere. Food well presented and tasty. Staff very attentive and courteous. Good mocha best we have had anywhere. Very busy day we went but did not have to wait too long. Varied menu from light bites to full lunch.

Dined here with friends to find a very friendly welcome in a comfortable venue. Staff went out of their way to deliver excellent service. Portions very generous so only had a main and shared the wonderful cheese board. Can highly recommend the halibut.

Fantastic seasonal menu with very generous portions but tasty and high quality ingredients. My linguini had scallops, prawns and chorizo a plenty. Service is good and prices reasonable.

We didn't eat here but we had the food that was provided by Luigi's at a local spa. It was delicious and by far the best food that I have had at any spa! Thank you!

The only negative here is the difficulty getting a reservation. Consistently Dornoch's best. My favorite dishes include the linguine with seafood and the lobster.

Decided by happy chance to pull off the A9 southbound to find a bite of lunch, I found it. There was no room inside, with good reason, so I happily sat at a table under the awning outside. I ordered a cappucino, which arrived in...More

In the summer there are two or three tables outside on the pavement. We have eaten there when we have had our wee dog with us.

Ali - That is a wonderful question. Whereas I can not give a definitive answer, my hypothesis is that if your dog is tiny and well behaved as stated, they would be a welcome guest. The dedication and focus on service was... More
