Went for a lovely Sunday lunch with the family. The restaurant is past the main hotel on the marina but is not very well signposted – I ended up having to check with the concierge where it was and if there was parking. The car parking is directly outside the Boathouse but they could certainly do with putting a proper tarmac car park in – on a soggy day (this is Scotland in August) it was a muddy mess with enormous potholes.
The bar (where you can have some light seafood) was light and airy with plenty of comfy sofas for a relaxing pre meal drink. The bar didn’t sadly have any berries which limited the cocktails we requested but they made up other ones instead
The restaurant is a good size with very large tables. There was 5 of us and we ended up removing an extra table and sitting at an end as we were too spaced out to have a conversation.
The menu is light and easy meals to suit all. Sadly the pizza oven was out of action having recently been on fire so we couldn’t have any fresh breads or pizzas. No matter as there is plenty of choice for everyone. We enjoyed a mixture of soup, calamari and bruschetta for starters – all of which were excellent. Main courses were also good with tasty fall off the bone ribs, crispy Cajun chicken and some really lovely seafood salads. We rounded off the meal with some tasty desserts
All in all this is a rather inexpensive place to eat in comparison to other Cameron House restaurants and was in a nice relaxing atmosphere. If the weather had been nice we would have tried to sit outside but with the lashing rain the midgies were out in force.
This is a lovely place for a good family meal (plenty of babies/kids about) – though they could do with sorting out the parking and signage to make it easier to find and park. Bookings are necessary as this place is full from noon to 8 pm every day
