We had an excellent 3 course meal including a bottle of Merlot for less than £70, A good selection on the a`la carte menu and very good value on the early evening menu. The Banoffee Cheesecake is as good as I have tasted anywhere in the World (I eat a lot of cheesecake).

I live in Inverness and i always seem to find myself here when it comes to that time where lunch & a gossip with friends is required.

Does a great value 2 course menu for 6.95, menu changes every week. I have found on a couple of occasions that the seasoning could be better but thats nothing you cant fix yourself. Menu is simple at times but i guess that reflects in the cost.

If you are making a reservation, ask for a top floor table next to the window, the views are always nice to look out on!

Heard mixed reviews about this restaurant lately from friends but returned with an open mind.

On arrival - left standing in doorway whilst staff checked our booking. Eventually taken up to third floor and each flight of stairs was littered with dirty plates, cutlery, cleaning materials etc - never encountered this in a restaurant before and it certainly was not attractive! Stopped by waiting staff at top of stairs as table was not ready. Hung about making small talk with disgruntled waitress on stairs for several minutes until shown to our table. No offer to take coats, order drinks etc. To be fair, staff were rushed off their feet as the restaurant was full - Saturday evening during Easter weekend. Ordering was rushed with little time allowed to study 'specials' board before it was whisked away.

First wine ordered was out of stock but alternative choice was extremely good and competitively priced, Starter of brocolli and stilton soup was lovely but crayfish and tuna salad with five spice dressing was quite bland. Our main courses included halibut and salmon dishes - both very nice but minute portions - and I am not a big eater. Accompanying vegetables were also fairly meagre as was portion of chocolate tart ordered for sweet.

Overall assessment - beautiful restaurant with splendid views - day or night. Let down by minor issues, the majority of which are centred around staff training and portion control. As a local, I would love to be able to recommend this restaurant without reservation but feel they can do so much better,. That said, I will return as I believe lunch is extremely good value.

Dinner was overall very good. Friendly welcome. Slightly abrupt waitress. Bread was a bit hard but liked the European touch of olive oil and balsamic for dipping. Starter of crayfish and noodles was a bit bland (Ginger/chilli/garlic/basil please). Mains of Chicken and Salmon were nice although didn't seem to have enough of the chorizo that was in the menu. Glass of wine or soft drink was included in the reasonable price. Wine was pleasant table wine but 'fresh orange juice' it was not. Basic request for a restaurant IMO.
Will be trying the sister restaurant The Mustard Seed next time perhaps.
