My partner ordered crab and langoustines. She got an incredible amount. Well prepared. She still had to crack them herself, which was not easy for the crab. It was delicious in one word. I had a ribeye. In addition, a Haggis croquette, which I ordered...More

We had a very good meal here. Lots of sea food choices. Cooked really well. The service was really good too. It is worth booking in advance. Try to get a window table so you can look out over Loch Linnhe.

We stumbled across this place by the water and thought, 'that's a good place for a seafood restaurant'. We were hungry so went inside and got a table. There's lots of fish to choose from and the wine was nice too. Give it a go

Wow what a find, so glad we booked in advance as people were being turned away on the night, especially as it was a Saturday night. The service good, friendly but they were busy. No spare tables to be seen. The food was so fresh...More

I popped in to have food before the cruise, I was very rudely told that the restaurant was not open (despite the door being open) I asked if I could wait in the reception area and was sneered at with a 'we're closed'

I'm unsure if it's geared for children. I suspect not but lunchtimes or very early evening might be ok for children. There were no children there during our visits.
