Terrific seafood -- the langoustines as the main course were the largest and best we had anywhere in Scotland. Nice views as the restaurant is right on the water. Reservations are essential.

We had a lovely dinner here. The food was great and there is a varied drinks menu. The views are lovely from the tables alongside the windows. The service started off okay but became abysmal and not in keeping with the standard of this restaurant....More

Great local seafood as fresh as it can get. Lovely views, a reasonable ion not exciting wine list. One of the best spots in Fort William.

I'm unsure if it's geared for children. I suspect not but lunchtimes or very early evening might be ok for children. There were no children there during our visits.
