A great little restaurant that several other eateries in the area could learn a lot from. The menu is compact but offers a good variety and seasonal specials. Friendly and attentive staff.

We booked a room at the Lochside on our tour of Scotland and were pleasantly surprised to find it is predominantly a restaurant. Although the restaurant itself is not exactly cosy, the food was excellent - delicious, well presented and an enjoyable experience. My haggis and black pudding bonbon starter was wonderful. The staff were friendly and attentive and the food was reasonably priced. Just one negative point if using the accommodation - although the sign outside says B&B, the second B is not available as they don't provide breakfast. This wasn't a problem for us as we had to leave very early anyway, but could be a downside to some. The location is excellent for exploring the Loch Lomond area.

The food at this place was brilliant and they had a steak night deal which was 2 steaks and a glass of wine for £40. The steaks were perfectly cooked, in fact all the food looked fantastic. The restaurant itself though lacks atmosphere, it is one big large room with no dividers or different levels, so it sort of feels like a really big living room, and everyone speaks in very hushed tones to avoid everyone else hearing. The restaurant was also sweltering, making the eating experience a little uncomfortable. I would recommend the food there, but not sure its the best overall experience in terms of restaurants.

Visited this restaurant still thinking it was an Italian, at first I was disappointed as I was wanting pasta/pizza. Could not believe the change in the restaurant so fresh and warm, food was amazing. Chicken satay skewers and risotto was to die for. Kids menu is great and my daughters fish was beautiful. My husband loved the chicken curry. Waitresses were efficient and friendly, couldn't believe it's been open nearly two years, will defo be back
