“Excellent local restaurant”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

The Red Poppy is a popular local restaurant and we eat there several times a year as a family with three kids. The location is at the back of the Strathpeffer Pavillion and the decor is modern and good quality. The food is consistently good and we particularly like the fairtrade wine. Kids menus are great too. Service is very good - always a nice relaxed atmosphere. Always a pleasure to go back, and I'd easily recommend a trip out to Strathpeffer to visit The Poppy.

“Best steaks!”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Been here a few times now and never had a bad meal, staff are nice and attentive and the food is just amazing. Always had the steaks when I've been, just can't go there and not have one!! Big menu as well, hard to choose as all sound very tasty. Will definitely keep going back.

“Excellent quality food”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Our party of 4 people made a booking here and we arrived about 15 minutes early at 1815hrs. This proved to be no problem as we were the only people in the restaurant at this time. During the next 30 minutes other people arrived to take another 4 tables so atmosphere in the restaurant was OK. The young girl who served us was polite and charming. However, there was a somewhat older women who was rather surly and obviously thought she was doing us a favour. I think the owner needs to have a few words with this women about her attitude to clients. Now to get to the good points. The food was of a very good standard. I had a Thai fish curry and it was just beautiful. My wife had the pasta dish(Navarin of fish) also very tasty. I couldn't manage a dessert but I tasted some of my wife's brûlée and it was delicious. All together a good evening just slightly spoiled by the attitude of one member of staff

Having been to the red poppy before which was great a few years ago we decided to go again for my friends birthday for a treat. I ordered the chicken and haggis which was nice however my 2 friends ordered the chicken fillets in beer bater! The batter was not cooked properly it was all soggy And they could not eat it so when the waitress said was everything ok we said what was wrong and she said oh ok!!! That's not the answer that should of been given an apologie would of been nice! Then when paying we told another lady who did not know about the complaint and she said its because it was beer batter I then told her it was not cooked properly and she said ill try get them to change it!!!!! There was still no apologise made and being a local this was not a good impression u might get away wit it to tourists but not to locals!

The service of the young waitresses was great really cheerful and welcoming. The food was great the Cullen skink was rated as the best in a long time and the mussels were the best I've tasted outside France. The quality of ingredients was also top notch the chef deserves a huge pat on the back for the top quality cooking of every part of every dish.
