Myself and friend had the loveliest soup and sandwich for lunch. Never tried beetroot soup before, and it was amazing. The sandwich was tasty & full of filling. Very good coffee, very warm, friendly service & what a fab view of the river Ness!

I loved this restaurant, the food was amazing. I have a wheat allergy and there was a fantastic choice for me. For starter I had mushrooms stuffed with cream and for main salmon with seafood risotto both were delicious. The atmosphere was cosy and friendly.

Did one of their early dinner set menu specials which was really delicious and great value for money. Salmon was just a tad more done than I would have liked, but all round fantastic dinner. Would definitely eat here again.

If I remember correctly it was between £18-£23, not cheap but worth it in my opinion. The food is very nice and the staff are helpful and friendly.
