                                this was one of many repeat visits for us. Think that speaks for itself. One negative comment - with the door open near us - it was bit chilly on a very cold day. Superb staff.

                                Awful , we booked for a pre theatre dinner, when I mentioned this on arrival we were told they don’t do pre theatre on a Saturday night- (the night most people go to the theatre. So we were given the al a carte menu, 2 of us opted for risotto-well we couldn’t eat it, absolutely terrible, basically a bowl of sludge. The 3rd person went for seabas, this came battered which none of us had ever seen it cooked like that before. It was like something from the chippy. Will definitely not be back or recommend to anyone.

                                Dear Guest, I'm sorry you felt you had to leave us such a bad review. The menu you wished to dine on has not been served in our restaurant on a Saturday night for about 3-4 years now, it does state this online on our website. My colleagues did check on the table several times during the meal and even asked if you would like the dishes to be changed to something else. This offer was declined by your table Kind Regards B.Larsen General Manager

                                Lovely food, always beautifully presented but was disappointed that all the choices, other than the steak, seemed to involve the use of chilli! Service and staff was extremely efficient and friendly.

                                Consistently good food. Odd dish not quite as good as others but usually down to poor choice on my part! Service always good. Sometimes noisy if there are large parties in restaurant.

                                Interesting menu - alot of interesting fish dishes,with an Asian fusion twist…birthday meal for me - but the restaurant failed to deliver the little ‘surprise’ that my husband had pre-arranged. Lively atmosphere and nice decor. A bit pricey for the food…

                                We chose this Restaurant after looking at the menu but I can honestly say the food was not good we had the pre-theatre menu, which at £24.95 for 3 courses was more expensive than other restaurants offering the same early bird menu. My Calamari starter was rubbery, not all of it but 50% of it. The pork belly rolls were cooked in fill pastry, impossible to eat with utensils easier to use your fingers. My main course chicken was really dry. My brothers rump steak was chewy! In fact the only good main on our table was sea bass in Tempura batter, but why put the fish in batter. Puddings decidedly average. The staff were great very attentive and polite the Restaurant itself was laid out nicely and very well decorated. What a shame the food was a let down. I chose this Restaurant on the lovely choice of food on its menu and I did read the reviews which were decidedly varied. I really hope it was just a bad night for this Restaurant and your standard of prepared good improves quickly.

                                Worst meal I’ve had there ,been going for some time but this visit was poor,the pork belly starter was greasy the vegetables on the roast were awful and Yorkshire pudding was dry and hard .... there were no vegetarian options other than tofu which I don’t eat and when asked if there was anything else I could be offered was told the chefs said no , but there was salad and vegetables ? Not even an offer of the chefs doing a cheese sauce on some veg ... no effort made ,the male waiter wasn’t very friendly... so all in all a very disappointing visit, and a waste of almost £50 ,not sure we will bother to visit again ,as Seems standards have dropped drastically,such a shame as have always enjoyed our meals there. So something has to change to make me return ...,.

                                I ordered salmon but discovered the dish contained shellfish although this was not stated on the menu. I’m allergic to shellfish so was unable to eat it. The chef cooked the dish without the shellfish but the salmon was raw this time. Third time it came it was cooked properly but by then I’d really lost the will to live. Was offered a small refund but considering the fact I could have been seriously unwell I think this was poor service and I won’t be going back

                                We had a lovely meal at the Contrast Brasserie at the Glenmoriston Townhouse Hotel in Inverness. We shared the Calamari as a starter, and for mains had the duck breast and the halibut. Both were excellently prepared and very flavorful. For dessert we shared sticky toffee pudding with ice cream, which is always a treat! Dinner with a bottle of wine (an excellent Malbec 2019), with cocktails, port, and the above came to approximately £65 a person. We would recommend.

                                We enjoyed our meal in the very relaxed and comfortable restaurant -service was excellent and the steak with peppercorn sauce was again excellent. Wouldn’t hesitate to come back-only down side there was no music in the piano bar.

A treat to go out and have good service and good food without disappointment. Good selection of cocktails enjoyed by all. Very covid aware and reassuring seeing tables and chairs getting good clean when vacated. Def recommend and will def return 👍🏼

                                While the staff were friendly they didn’t seem very organised. I had to remind someone (when I could catch their eye) that I had ordered chips and a sauce to go with my steak. I also had to ask for a sharp knife - the “steak” knife provided was totally blunt. Variety on the menu but not many choices. Plenty of other places to choose from in Inverness.

                                Excellent lunch and good value at £16.95 for two courses. The food was lovely, definitely an Asian vibe to the menu, only minor quibble was the main course being on the small side. The accompaniments were delicious but there could’ve done with just being a little more of them on the plate. Service was great, nice background playlist, it was quiet for a Saturday so the ambience was muted but perhaps that’s more a result of social distancing requirements and all that.
