Description: Great food in a great location - that is what The Village Rest is all about. Always comfortable and friendly, you can be assured of a great time whether you're just in for a cup of coffee and a cake, or a large meal.Our varied and well balanced menu changes regularly and is in season and the food always fresh. We aspire to serve delicious homemade dishes with locally sourced produce. Our atmosphere is relaxed with an eclectic interior. The Village Rest is casual enough for lunch or tea, and yet formal enough for special occasions.In the perfect village of Luss, The Village Rest is ideally placed for enjoying Loch Lomond and the scenery of the national park. Arguably Scotland's most beautiful loch, Loch Lomond is also one of the largest. There is huge variety too, between the gentle sweeping farmland of the southern edge to the rugged highland shores of the north. Luss is positioned on the edge of the Highlands and has great views across to the islands and mountains of Loch Lomond.Luss is connected to central Scotland by the A82, a good quality fast road, with driving times of less than an hour from central Glasgow.

“Give it a try!”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

The restaurant seemed very new and the owners were still obviously working to complete the room. However don't let that put you off because the food was excellent. Unfortunately we weren't hungry enough to take full advantage of a very interesting menu, but we'll certainly be back.

“A great restaurant.”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

We came here for Mothers Day lunch. The restaurant and staff were very welcoming. We had the two course menu, the choices were either starter and main course, or main course and dessert. There was plenty options on the menu to suit all tastes. The food was fresh, well cooked and nicely presented. The lemon meringue cheesecake was gorgeous!!!.
The restaurant had been refurbished since we had last visited, to a high standard. They have put in some booths, which give a degree of privacy.
The staff are efficient,polite and friendly.
We will definitely go back.

“Pleasantly surprised”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

Thought this was a wee traditional pub we where going into. Once we got over the surprise of seing a bueatiful cosy wee restaurant., we sat down and ordered. The service was prompt and very polite. Given some good advice from the menu. The food itself was delicious. The haggis pakora with spiced onions for a starter is a must. Reasonably priced, with good sized portions. Would definately recommend this wee place if you are in the area

“Great scones pity about the latte !”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

This was my first visit in over four years. The home baking, particularly the scones were so very tasty but the coffee! Requested two decaf lattes which were cold and undrinakable as they were sooooo strong. Returned them and asked for fresh ones which I noticed were made with instant coffee, don't have a problem with that. However, I would suggest that staff take lessons in how to prepare and make a latte.

Also, at £9.80 a bit pricy, as these are prices I would expect to pay in a city centre coffee shop
