I came here for a wedding party lunch, the restaurant was beautifully set out for the whole family. The service was great with all staff being fully attentive and accommodating. The food was fantastic, 3 courses including a delicious steak and a yummy sticky toffee pudding. Great selection of ales from the local brewery too. The setting is beautiful too.... More

Every single bite of our meals was excellent. This was truly one of our best meals. I had the venison. Simply perfect. I forgot the name of the desserts, but each of the sauces were incredible. I eat at a wide variety of restaurants in California and other states and countries and I'm not easily impressed, but every bite was... More

We phoned in advance while driving to book a lunchtime table for two. We were given the option of two different times and we chose the later one. We didn’t realize how quickly we would get there and so we phoned again to say we were very near could we change to the earlier time but not to worry if... More

This is a true gem - once found - you'll never want to go anywhere else. The location is fabulous and the food is the best I have had in a restaurant in the highlands. Summer and tourist months best to book early. Definitely a must !!! Can't wait to go back.

What a fabulous bistro - big choice of menu- didn't know what to pick which is unusual for me as I'm a fish eating vegetarian. I had the sea bass and it was cooked to perfection. Raspberry and apple crumble was delicious. Wine lovely as was the espresso coffee. Rest of the family delighted too - they had steak and... More

Dinner midweek glad we booked early as there was not a table empty! Excellent menu and specials on the board, warm friendly welcome from the staff and all very attentive and helpful. Children ate from the same menu with slightly smaller portions, all freshly made and not a complaint.
