    We picked from the early evening menu 2 courses for £15.99. Great value for money. Food was delicious, fresh and hot.

    Everything good but I feel like there could’ve been a little more organisation meaning everyone having their own tables, it was a bit all over the place, I got dessert menu’s off a lady and then a guy comes up behind her asking if we were ready to order desserts, I hadn’t even had enough time to look at the menu let alone read it, other than that everything was fine, just think everyone needs their own sections ☺️

    Wouldn't rush back. Whole experience was disjointed, badly organised and badly managed. We were sharing a starter before our champagne arrived. You pay the bill on the way out. Helpful knowledge which maybe saves you a 25 min wait at the end of the meal whilst the staff are more preoccupied setting for breakfast around you than worrying about the customers there. Not worth complaining. Staff disinterested, nor equipped to deal with it. Real shame. Place was busy. Suspect not many will be back. A birthday meal ruined, such a shame.

    To be honest we opted for the two course option as a pre gig meal. When we received the bill we noticed there were sur charges on our steaks for a few chips and vinegarette salad, there was also an additional £10 service charge ended up at over £85. The steaks were a bit chewy and as we have dined here before felt slightly let down as we praised the place up to our guests. I understand that there are new owners now in place but try and encourage some of your staff to cheer up and make the place more welcoming

    We ate here the first night we arrived in Inverness. There was a wide selection of starters, mains and desserts from the a la carte menu. Waiter service was prompt and efficient. However, a warning - only order the king prawns with pak choi as your starter if you like chilli heat that burns your mouth and brings tears to your eyes! There was no mention on the menu of how hot this dish was. All the other dishes that we had were plentiful, well-cooked and well-presented. The atmosphere was somewhat subdued, and the Christmas decorations were rather sparse. Last year, at this time, the Christmas decorations were superb.

    We were on a DBB break. We opted for the 3 course set menu and wasn't disappointed. Very good value. The setting and atmosphere was lovely. Breakfast in the morning catered for everyone's needs. You have to book a time for breakfast as well meaning it wasn't too busy which I'd a good idea. Would definitely recommend.

    Typically the sample menu was a distant dream from the one we were presented with! The waiting staff in the main were distant and lacking any warmth. The only way to describe the food was that it was cheap ingredients prepared by an incompetent kitchen staff. For such an attractive location it is a shame that the restaurant lets it down.

    Fabulous restaurant, very clean and helpful, polite (very hardworking) staff. We had booked the hotel on the Winter Deal. This includes the Table d’hote menu. It was a varied three course menu, but it didn’t have anything we wanted. We had the Al a Carte and were given £20 each off the bill. We both had the garlic mushrooms to start. Hubby had fish & chips. Huge piece of Freshly battered, beautiful white fish. I had slow braised belly pork, the best I have ever had, no fat, just a lovely piece of crackling on top. Finished with the best sticky toffee pudding ever. All in all a very pleasant experience. Thank you

    Good variety of food on the menu including kids menu. We had the early bird deal and everyone enjoyed it. Very generous portions. The pan fried chicken with wok cooked vegetables and noodles was very tasty. The sticky toffee pudding was light but could have done with a little more sauce and some cream or ice cream to accompany it. It’s a really lovely place to sit and watch the river. Staff were very friendly and efficient. It was busy because there was a wedding on in the function suite but it didn’t impair their service. I would certainly recommend eating there

    Just a few little things that i feel they need to rectify - no veg with the fish and chips, i ordered sticky toffee and that was exactly it, no cream/ice cream or even offering of it. Mocktail ordered and came in same glass as water , which was basically orange pineapple juice with grenadie and a segment of orange. Maybe a tad more excitement on it for the price considering i could have orderd 1 glass of each and would still be cheaper! Service was fab, attentive without over bearing, food served quickly. would i go back? - yes

    Having dined on a number of ocassions in the last month or two I was disppoined by the main course chosen yesterday evening. It was the staek choice and the meat proved difficult to cut and even more difficult to chew!! My compaint elicted a reasonable response and a substitute. On paying the bill my companion queried the inclusion of the inedible course at which point its cost was deducted and the staff member indicated that there had been a problen of inconsistency of supply. That being so why did my frined have to even query the inclusion of the dish on the bill? I feel there was a lack of transparency in the hotel's dealing with us.
