Better than average for this area, but perhaps not quite "Very Good" - however, it does deserve a better rating than average. The food was tasty and well prepared, and the cafe setting was basic but appropriate. Not much competition in the immediate area next to the canal, but it was OK.

I would have liked to have given this a 3 1/2 but there wasn't that option. The food was fine and the place is clean and nicely laid out.

This is not the first time I have visited the moorings since the renovation, the first twice I let it slip, the third time. I went to order food, to be told to sit down and they will come to my table and order my food. That was fine, sat for 20 minutes still no one came over to order... More

Recommend this place for dinner by our B&B Well priced, good service and tasty food. The fish was tasty and the cider was cold. If you are in Fort William you should check this place out.

Stopped here for a light lunch and were delighted with the clean airy restaurant and stunning views over the hills and the canal. The staff were very pleasant and helpful and the food was to a high standard. Will definitely call again.
