We had our anniversary dinner here during our stay. The service was of good measure, but on the slow side. The atmosphere was stuffy, with no music at all. We went early, so maybe as the evening progresses it gets a bit more comfortable. The food was good, but on the pricey side. Our server did a very good job. For the money, we have had better. But given this place was recommended we gave it a try. In the end we had a nice dinner and evening, I guess we were hoping for more.

We had a very good meal for a reasonable price. The setting is nice althugh not very cosy, and too " branded" (you see the Roux brand on everything, from plates, to pictures on the wall, to water bottles...). Worth trying because the quality of the food an the recipes are good. Just not one of those memorable meals....

We attend Chez Roux a couple of weeks ago. The standard of the food and service were excellent. From the moment we arrived they remembered which one of us was wheat free. The canapes in the bar with our pre-dinner drinks were a lovely addition. We were most surprised by the bill - excellent value for money. The atmosphere was peaceful and relaxing and I just loved the decor. We will be back

Arrived here to find that I was the only person in the restaurant. My dining companion joined me a short time later but, apart from us, there were only three other guests in the restaurant - very strange for a Sunday in Inverness at the height of the tourist season.
After amuse-bouches of little haggis balls and seafood tarts, our choice of starter was rillette of rabbit, quirkily served in a ring-pull tin. Gorgeous flavours of fennel seeds, with a nice side offering of home-made bread. Main was quail stuffed with giant cous cous. A delicious dish, though hearty for a summer's day. We didn't venture near the desserts or the wine list, but enjoyed excellent coffee and petit fours.
Service was slightly overbearing, perhaps due to the fact that there were as many staff as diners. Deserves to be busier. Very high standards all round.

fresh fish, great Scottish meat, in short a place to recommend after a day on Loch Ness.
and as a starter, a unique presentation of the terrine de saumon.
