“Oh Joy!”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

Stopped in for lunch on a bitterly cold day. Immediately welcomed, shown a seat and were warmed by the place, literally.

I opted for the king prawn cocktail which came on a bed of fresh salad. I then had the beef and onion sandwich which came in lovey thick bloomer bread again with lovely side salad. The beef was very succulent. The food was presented very well and tasted joyful! The value was also very good.

Highly recommended and bravo to such a unique establishment.

“Excellent lunch”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

Visited Joy of Taste in the centre of Inverness with my wife for lunch. It is an interesting concept run by volunteers. Service is very good and the food superb. I had a sirloin of beef with caramel used onion baguette and my wife had Bruschetta, both came with salad. The coffees both cappuccinos were large and hot, not Luke warm in some places. Very good food and excellent value for money. Will definitely be back for dinner one evening.

“fantastic meal at outstanding price with great service”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

me and my partner ate here last night and could not fault it and were stunned by the price for the quality you receive, the waitress who served us Sky would not be out of place in any 5 star establishment and was so welcoming and friendly into the bargain will definitely return soon

“great atmosphere”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

I had a really lovely meal but my husband found his pheasant to be overcooked and tough. It was very busy and we were kept waiting for our table but the staff apologised and gave us a free drink. We would definately return as I think outwith xmas when its not so busy it would be a different experience.
