2nd visit to this cafe restaurant.

Busy again.

Booked for the High Tea.

Wonderful food. No photos unfortunately but the presentation was great.

Had one of their hot chocolates....wow, so good! Just what I was needing!

The service was great, it's nice to go to somewhere were you're not bothered or pestered by the staff all the time.

Till next time!

Visiting Inverness for the first time, we were enchanted by the river frontage of this small family restaurant. Easter Sunday lunch was superb. A very enjoyable pate (think it was home made) and a delicious home made, spicy carrot soup. This was followed by a delicious well cooked and presented main meal of lamb with roast potatoes and vegetables . All this was followed by bread pudding (one of my favourites) but using hot cross buns as a base.(Very topical for the Easter week-end) The atmosphere was relaxed but the service was attentive. The restaurant carries a very good selection of wines and correctly recommended for the meal. Very good value for money and I look forward to my next trip north!

we have been to this restaurant a lot of times, but never on a sunday because was always closed. we had the 3 course set lunch menu.my starter was very tasty (pate), and my partner had the mozzarella salad which was also nicely presented. for our main course we both had the lamb. it was lovely and tender, accompanied with veg and potatoes, the sticky toffee pudding was very good. we will definately be returning to our favourite restaurant in Inverness
