Not exactly world class, might be good for being in Scotland. A bit disappointed when the place has been recommended by many. Friendly staff though

Superb service and the food was some of the best I have ever had, particularly the fillet stake, which was cooked to perfection.

Went here for lunch today, yet ended up eating elsewhere. We waited for a while to be seated whilst the staff stood about chatting, once seated we waited and waited yet no one came to take our order. Yes once again they were standing about chatting. We were a bit fed up yet willing to wait. However when we saw... More

It was busy and noisy but had good atmosphere, specials were all explained to us and order taken, starters were delicious and... More

Visited here on a Sunday night. It was very quiet but the staff were lovely and chatty, we had a really good time talking to the waitress. The steak was excellent, it was perfect medium rare as I had ordered and the wee bowl of Diane sauce was lovely to dip into. First class. We booked a table for the... More

Sorry guys but I absolutely loved this restaurant until my last visit. I always make a visit here when I'm in Inverness and the food was always exceptional.
