Lovely restaurant just on the banks of the river, close to one of the bridges - beautiful food, great service and also advertise that they cater for gluten free - nothing a problem to them. Definitely worth a visit for a special night out.

Cracking meal and service in a really nice relaxed atmosphere - great selection - I went for the livers to start, followed by venison then cheesecake. Best in the city and can't wait to return.

Managed to get a table here on Saturday night (26/04), a delightfully quiet, intimate restaurant. Delicious Crab cakes to start for me and for my wife. For main course I had rack of the most succulent and well cooked lamb I have had, along with fondant potatoes and samphire, my wife had fillet of pork stuffed with apricots which she thoroughly enjoyed, all this washed down with a bottle of fairly priced Merlot.

We booked HIgh Tea for four of us at 5 pm on a Saturday night. Restaurant was quite quiet, although it's not big place. Staff were excellent and our high tea was fabulous value. 11.50 each. Fish and Scampi so fresh and the braised steak was delicious. We got tablet with our coffee or tea. Toast, jam beforehand then the cakes arrived. Wow! 4 of each with huge pot of thick cream and another pot of ja,. 4 shortbread, 4 warm scones, 4 malteser slices and a delicious banana loaf with glazed bananas on top. All were delicious and freshly baked.

We were all so impressed with the service, food, value and had a great evening. It is not a busy noisy restaurant. It is relaxing and quietish, more intimate than social but great if you want peace to have conversation.

Would highly recommend this quaint wee restaurant with a view of the River Ness.
