Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were tempted back this time to try their seafood platter. At £75 there was plenty of delicious food for two. We liked it here having already ate at their Salt Cellar two days earlier.

There are much better places in Lossiemouth for a meal. Don’t know if it was due to Covid but did not enjoy it.

A group of us stopped in here for a couple of sociable pints on what was a memorable day's drinking. Ideally located on the doorstep of Lossiemouth's East Beach, we sampled both the internal and external seating to take in some of the views. I...definitely felt comfortable throughout my stay. The draught pints were part of a fine selection of world 'Beers', the atmosphere was quiet but very inviting (peaceful), the staff were friendly and the cost of the rounds, although slightly expensive, were justifiable as we truly felt that we were in one of the town's more upper market establishments. Although brief, this was a welcomed one hour stop during our day out. Fun had by all!More

Location was very good, staff were okay, food was not very good. Pork was over cooked, smoked haddock lasagne contained very little smoked haddock and the Langoustines were over priced. I agree with a previous reviewer that there was only a token effort made regarding...Covid safety. We will not be back.More

Had meal on Saturday evening, sat at outside table waited half an hour for our order to be taken two members of staff seemed more interested in chatting with two regulars at next table, main course (roast of the day-pork ) was ok but a...bit tough but served with nice veg and tatties, sweet was much better delicious bannoffie tart with crispy base served with cream and ice cream my partner had lovely sticky toffee pudding which was well enjoyed. Pity about slow service don’t think I would rush back.More

The food was nice and with a varied choice. Some surprisingly good wines on the list. Service was a little slow.

Food and location ok, but only token effort made with regard to Covid. So we won’t be going back in a hurry. You can sit in or out - we chose to sit out. You select your food choice off the board by the door....So at peak times people crowd around this, often unmasked and with little regard to social distancing. Orders must be placed and paid for at the bar. That involves going into the restaurant, round the one-way system but - at peak times - past occupied tables. So social distancing is again difficult. Table service, but staff are not masked.More

She had the lemon drizzle cake and coffee. Both very good, nice large slice of cake. I had gone all wobbly so went for the big breakfast, and I have to admit that it was outstanding in quality, perfectly cooked, well laid out. The sausages...and black pudding were especially good. Well done folks, really enjoyable.More

Visited here when we had the amazing heatwave in April. I sat outside in the sunshine with my dog while I waited for a friend to arrive, I sat for longer than half an hour without being approached by any member of staff. The waitresses...walked past me a few times and I couldn’t get their attention. I had to wait until my friend arrived to go inside to ask for some service- and some water for my dog. I had a panini for lunch and it was very nice. Very disappointed in the service which is a shame because the area, (especially sitting outside on a sunny day) and the food is really good. Will maybe try again when I’m next in the area! (If the sun is shining!)More

La Caverna bistro is set in an arched building decorated in stone and looks like the inside of a cave. This building has been around for well over 40 yrs ( I remember it as an 8 yr old being a newsagent). Now a bistro...it offers breakfast, lunch and dinner. The food is cooked to order and claims to be sourced locally. If you are pressed for time or not wanting food you are still made welcome to sit and have a fresh coffee. There is a small seating area outside that looks over the East beach and is a perfect sun trap in the summer months.More

Food was disgusting. Trio of puddings were black pudding, haggis and white pudding rolled up into balls and totally vile. whisky sauce was watery and the worst I’ve ever tasted. Burger was dry and tasteless. Will most definitely not be back.
