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.

Stopped in for lunch while passing by. Didn’t know what to expect. Great atmosphere and view. Good food, fish & chips, and service.

We have been to this restaurant before and have had nice meals however last nights meal was appalling. Our starters of salmon salad and chicken soup were fine, but unfortunately our main meal of haddock and chips was shockingly bad, my fish from first bite...were full of bones and after five bites I decided to eat no more, my husband was the same although with less bones, he left half his meal due to the bones and the taste of dirty oil from the batter, Chef, please check your fish for pin bones as these had clearly not been checked and removed. The waitress came over and asked my husband if everything was ok with our meal, and my husband told her how poor the fish was, she apologised and said she would inform the chef Orders for starter and sweets were wrong, and when informed about sweet order she rolled her eyes! Please also clean your tables as ours was sticky, All in all poor dining experience DisappointedMore

Although the food and service was excellent, the environment was a little under whelming. Tables were a bit sticky and the annoying 80s music playing should have been traditional Scottish as restaurants was full of tourists. Great view for sure. Steak and ale pie, fish...and chips and steak frites were all a hit.More

The restaurant was a recommendation from our accommodation. The hotel with restaurant is situated on the loch and when the weather is nice you can even sit on the terrace. Inside, everything is glazed with panoramic windows facing the lake. We were served very nicely...by a Romanian waiter and were delighted with the food: mussels, salmon, steak, tuna tartare. Because we liked it so much, we booked a room in the hotel there for the next evening and had dinner there again. There was also a good selection at the buffet for breakfast. I would gladly come back any time.More

The location is lovely but on the whole our experience wasn't good. One member of staff was friendly but unfortunately the others gave the impression that we were just a transaction. Haddock was overcooked and batter not crispy - felt like it had been kept...warm for too long and not freshly cooked. My husband's salmon also looked as if it had been pre-cooked ready for whatever the requested sauce was. White wine was warm.More

I had mussels in a cream sauce, and my husband had steak and ale pie. Both were delicious, and we followed up with ice cream topped with a strawberry. Had a nice merlot, too. Put all this together with stunning views across Loch Linhe, and...it added up to a very enjoyable lunchtime. The staff were friendly and efficient. Would thoroughly recommend a visit here. Dog friendly, too.More

We cycled here from the campsite as it was a lovely afternoon and sat on the terrace in the sunshine and had a lovely refreshing drink. We had hoped to stay for a bar meal but were refused as "food was only being served to...residents". At this time 6pm on a Tuesday the bar was quiet, food was being served to residents and us and several other tables of non-residents were sat outside having drink - It astounds me that the hotel would not serve us (or 2 other tables) food. Had this been available we would have stayed for food and more drinks, as it happened we left after just one - seems a very strange way to run a business!More

We ordered Scallops and Salmon Fish Cake for starters. Both were good, Scallops a bit gritty and grey. For the mains we had the Sea-bass and Salmon which were both lovely sized portions of the fish and healthy bowl of fresh vegetables the side. We...had some beer and wine and sat in the middle of the room with the view of the Loch and not in the sun as much. Staff were helpful we couldn’t leave a tip on a credit card. Cash only tips and we didn’t have any!More

Stopped on the way for one night, and wasn't expecting much, but had a surprisingly pleasant experience. We ordered the lobster thermidor and seafood rendezvous. The scallops were heavenly and the salmon was delicious. Oysters and mussels were small but taste was excellent. The staff...were very friendly and helpful, especially the Romanian gentleman. One of the best meals we had in Scotland.More
