“Great, simple food & wonderful location”
Reviewed August 28, 2010

Took my boyfriend here for lunch recently and were pleasantly surprised. The menu was extensive and there weren't many free tables which is always a positive indication of the quality.

Staff were friendly and approachable, surroundings are not plush but comfortable. I found I felt a little exposed, it didn't feel very intimate or private but we both ordered a burger and chips which was nicely presented and a very tasty burger made from local beef.

Well worth a trip.

“Fantastic food at a stunning location”
Reviewed August 18, 2010

I live in Inverness but recently visited Dores Inn with a group of friends from further afield and everyone was blown away by both the location and the food. Highlights were definately the black pudding, scallops, pork belly and langoustines but the simpler food like fish n chips and steak was also delicious. Really generous portion sizes too. We ate inside (the restaurant has a really cute cottage feel) but had drinks afterwards on the open bar overlooking the loch - stunning!

Delicious coffee cake and a coffee out on the terrace at the loch. Will definitely call again when at Dores beach.

“A little gem right on the Loch”
Reviewed August 11, 2010

Book ahead for this place !!!! other wise you may have a long wait..but its worth it.
Some tradiional dishes and some not so traditional.

Food was of an excellent standard and you can sit and look at the loch before and after.

I hesitate to recommend as it will only make it more difficult for me to get in next time
