“A fine place for a meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013

Four of us went along on a Saturday night and enjoyed a fabulous meal that was reasonably priced. From the starter, every dish was enticing. The mains were enough, while leaving room for pudding. We were celebrating the anniversaries of both couples, and we were looking for something special. The staff were eager to please, and while they were all rushed off their feet, they kept on smiling. The atmosphere was relaxing, quiet but not hushed, and an attractive decor. We all had a lovely time.

“Good foof”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

If you can put up with the busy atmosphere (there is invariably a wedding reception in progress) and the whiff of chlorine from the Spa then you will enjoy the food and the views. Order before 1830 for the special price menu

“Lunch with a View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

Enjoyed a great lunch with my mother. We had a window table with a stunning view across the loch. The menu choice was excellent with both an a la carte and a "specials" menu. The staff were very helpful and the food and service were very good. Chances are if you are eating at the Lochside you will be able to loads of people watching as this is very popular wedding venue.
