“Nice place for lunch - shame about the squeaky plates!”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

Had soup and cake here and it was lovely; couldn't fault the food nor the service. The restaurant was busy, but we were seated instantly and served within 5 minutes. The only thing which I find really unbearable is the screeching sounds when people are eating with the cutlery. I think I mentioned this in a previous review, but it is the one thing which puts me off eating here regularly. It sends shivers down me and it is definitely to do with the plates or cutlery they use, as apposed to the diners!

“Perfect Lunch Choice”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

Had a delicious lunch here.
It is popular so be prepared to queue.
We were lucky and were seated quickly.
Good choices, great prices, great food and friendly staff.
What more can you ask for.

“Consistent and friendly and with good food from a huge menu”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

Had lunch here twice on a weekend break and thoroughly enjoyed both occasions. The place is always busy around lunchtime but the staff are never flustered and seat allocation is normally relatively quick. They seem to cope well with young children and although the menu is long enough to suit all tastes everything I have had has been great - notably the rib eye steak and the smokey burger.

A fine venue for lunch in Inverness.

“Best afternoon tea in Scotland”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Pot of tea for two. Delicious shortbread and a strawberry tart to die for. Just one thing lacking: No jug of hot water to top up the pot. (A minor detail and I'm sure I would have got one if I'd asked).

“Breakfast”
Reviewed October 10, 2012 via mobile

I had a breakfast here last month, although it was expensive for what you are getting it was very tasty. The restaurant seems more of a tea and scone place.
