We visited the restaurant this evening the menu is reasonably priced. The quality of food for price was ok, When we walked in we were told by staff we might have to wait up to an hour for our meal. We were happy to do this so sat at a table and had a drink and ordered our food, Which... More

Went here for a meal during a 2 night stay in Fort William. We had a couple of drinks in the bar before going upstairs to the restaurant. If we had only stayed in the bar this would be a completely different review. The bar is lovely. Very welcoming and a nice atmosphere. Everything changed when we went upstairs. We... More

I think most of the food is from frozen [the establishment should correct this review if that's not the case] and it lacks any character. They were short staffed the night we visited and this was reflected in very slow and inattentive service. When we complained to the duty manager however, her response was faultless and professional, and we left... More

We had a wonderful evening meal here during our stay in Fort William. The restaurant is cosy and charming, the food was excellent and the staff are wonderful - extremely friendly and very helpful! The windows at the front also have a lovely view over the water. They don't take reservations for parties of 4 or fewer, so you can... More

Arrived here on Saturday evening and was guided upstairs to the restaurant. On arrival there were plenty of empty tables. We asked for a table for four to be told that the girl would have to check with the chef as he "had a lot of checks on at the moment". The waitress returned to tell us we couldnt be... More

Reading between the lines, Fort William has an employment crisis. Lots of part time jobs advertising in shop windows and bars. Munro Restaurant at Ben Nevis hotel seemed such a casualty. Front of house staff, except from the man managing, were pretty inexperienced, or seemed it. We asked three times for a table in the restaurant and each time were... More

Went here with family. I ordered steak, sent it back because it was undercooked, and consisted of about 40% fat. Got another, looked a nicer piece then I cut it and was even more rare than the first one! None of the 7 main meals were very nice. I ended up with a cool chicken curry. Sweets were just so... More
