    Lovely lunch on Sunday for three adults, two children and Bonnie the dog, who enjoyed her first restaurant meal of pasta and chicken with vegetables. Very accommodating staff, especially where Bonnie was concerned. We too enjoyed Balmoral Chicken and Cullen Skink, followed by lovely desserts. So highly recommended for food and ambience. Likely to book again

    Ordered Chicken Balmoral which was dry but I ate it anyway, husbands steak and sausage pie was just ok too. But I did love that it was dog friendly. I think as it was a Friday night and busy it impacted on the food. I would return again but maybe earlier in the day. Service was perfect and it is a lovely setting. I would consider staying over a couple of nights.

    Not value for money. Very very overpriced for what you get. Not worth it. We booked Saturday night and Sunday night but after our visit on Saturday we cancelled Sunday night . I had the Ribeye steak. I also ordered peppercorn sauce. They gave a teaspoon full. About 7 chips and a few salad leaves. I would skip this restaurant!!

    the setting of this restuarant was really nice and we were looking forward to a nice meal (window seat) overlooking water. The food was really bad - most of it was cold and the main meal was disgusting . The waiter who welcomed us was very friendly and told us about the menu. However another waiter who removed our plates did not enquire as to why the food of the mains was untouched. To be fair we did not complain - just paid and left - will not be back again to this restuarant I am afraid ,

    Service was brilliant and attentive and cannot be at fault with anything. However, on the children's menu the garlic bread was a surprise as I was not expecting 2 slices of days old bread to be serves, let alone it was close to £3 for it. Overall, everything else was of good value for a weekend getaway.

    Open table asked for any special requests for the booking e.g. birthday or anniversary etc. I put birthday as it was my wife's birthday that day. The evening meal was eaten, and cocktails had, then the bill was delivered. Absolutely no mention of a birthday at all. I spoke to one of the servers and got a 'sorry about that' after she looked puzzled as to what I was talking about. Even after being prompted about my wife's birthday, there was no further response on leaving. Disappointing. There was also a very young boy serving at table and showing folk to their table. Maybe about 12/13 years old, surely this isn't acceptable?

    This restaurant is very friendly. The food menu was varied with attention to local produced items and exceptionally fresh. The choice was good with options for those with intolerances and vegan/vegetarian options. The staff were all attentive, friendly and courteous without being overbearing or making you feel rushed. The food was all prepared fresh and we were served timeously. As well as a restaurant there is a relaxed bar area where we had drinks. The cocktail menu was varied and the prices of food and drink reasonable. The views over the Loch were lovely and the whole area clean,tidy and appealing.

    Overall had a really nice experience. We were seated in the lovely area out back which feels more private than the main area. Service was quick and polite. I was a bit let down as I was hoping to get their stone baked pizza but it turns out they no longer do that! My only quarrel was that I ordered the mac and cheese which was meant to come with a garlic crumb on top. As I was eating my meal I overheard the waitress gloat to a nearby couple on how good the mac and cheese is and the crumb on top! At which point I realised mine didn't have a crumb. When we asked for the bill I mentioned it to the waiter and they simple say oh sorry, and that was it. They looked like the mamager as well. I know they couldn't do anything about it but I thought they would give us a discount or something. Bit of a shame.

    The main reason, perhaps the only reason, for choosing this restaurant is the loch side location and open views across Loch Tay. The restaurant itself has little character, the menu is expensive and uninspiring and the rocky music doesn't match the location. Service, on the other hand, was attentive, professional and friendly. When we sent back a luke warm plate of haggis there was a quick apology and the matter was dealt with efficiently. If only the food was as good as the people serving.

    Dined here on two consecutive nights. Staff were very welcoming to us and our 2 wee dogs. Really enjoyed our first meal on the Friday night, very tasty and hot (black pudding on sourdough followed by fish and chips) but Saturday night were disappointed with our chicken goujons followed by haggis ( particularly disappointed with the neeps). On the Saturday night, although very polite and engaging, the young waiter forgot to bring our water, got our wine order wrong and also got our dog food order wrong. Didn’t spoil our visit- we had a great weekend.

    Brilliant meal in a beautiful location. The staff were super accommodating of our young family, and put our 3 year old daughter’s meal request in very quickly, ensuring she had her dinner in a few minutes and was happily occupied - which was greatly appreciated and allowed us all to relax. Absolutely lovely staff and service and a gorgeous well priced menu. We’ll be back!
