“Average”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

My wife and I went here for the second time as it comes highly recommended as a restaurant only to find a cramped seating area together with a slightly overpriced and sparse menu. The staff were very friendly and the choice of whiskey's is enormous.

“Not a Bar but a Restaurant!”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

A cafe bar but at 1820 there was no room for 3 of us to have one drink, despite empty tables. Initially we could sit but might have to move. Then it was 'no' and we had to leave.
Very annoying

“The best place for very good local food and whisky”
Reviewed October 3, 2012 via mobile

Impossible to visit Scotland without an evening in John's Restaurant! (at least for my friends and me). All the food we tasted was really good and the choice of different whiskies is unbelievable. And the best is: John can tell you about every whisky what you want to know. Very friendly staff and warm atmosphere!
