A surprising café. Much larger than it appears - ready for the larger groups to descend. But not spoiled by that. Good service by friendly waiting staff.

Haggis for lunch after a cruise on Loch Lomond. Great food, service and location. Recommended! Just be aware as you drive along the main road, the turn off into the car park is the right one - there is no separate car park further down!...More

This restaurant is not too expensive but provides good meals, and correctly labels vegetarian food. Really enjoyed our meal there, though we didn't manage a dessert too, pity, they looked great!

We were a group of 4, and walked to this restaurant for an evening meal, the interior is nicely decorated and looked clean. The food is good for a reasonable price but nothing to write home about based on the menu choices we made. Service...More

Your dog is more than welcome inside! As long as it's well behaved and on a lead! Best to book as they can get quite busy, but at this time of year maybe not so!

Great food in a great location - that is what The Village Rest is all about. Always comfortable and friendly, you can be assured of a great time whether you're just in for a cup of coffee and a cake, or a large meal.Our varied and well balanced menu changes regularly and is in season and the food always fresh. We aspire to serve delicious homemade dishes with locally sourced produce. Our atmosphere is relaxed with an eclectic interior. The Village Rest is casual enough for lunch or tea, and yet formal enough for special occasions.In the perfect village of Luss, The Village Rest is ideally placed for enjoying Loch Lomond and the scenery of the national park. Arguably Scotland's most beautiful loch, Loch Lomond is also one of the largest. There is huge variety too, between the gentle sweeping farmland of the southern edge to the rugged highland shores of the north. Luss is positioned on the edge of the Highlands and has great views across to the islands and mountains of Loch Lomond.Luss is connected to central Scotland by the A82, a good quality fast road, with driving times of less than an hour from central Glasgow.
