Great food and a lovely setting. Food is good quality, great price and staff are friendly. The setting around the fires inn is lovely, awesome for a after-dinner walk and taking in views of loch Ness.

Had two burgers and two pints of local pale ale which came quickly, staff were lovely and helpful with advice for the area! Sat on the beach next to the restaurant afterwards to enjoy sunset over Loch Ness. Limited parking so bear this in mind.

Just enjoyed dinner for two, great value and good selection of food. Friendly staff all willing to assist. Half size portions available on many main courses - even these are quite substantial! Dessert portion sizes really large...... most enjoyable will certainly be back!
