Picante was our restaurant of choice during a week long stay in Alness. There are pizzas, burgers and kebabs on the menu as well as some traditional English dishes. Kebabs are packed with meat and flavour and the pizzas are very good. Service is excellent...and quick with friendly staff. Definitely visit next time.More

Ordered one pizza, lesson learned. Pizza - No tomato puree, overly cheesy, undercooked base. Very poor. May return to try something else from the menu but it doesn't bode well that the chefs (Ok, cooks) were happy to let that pizza out of the kitchen....It should have been put straight in the bin.More

I use picante regularly, both with my mum for lunch and for a cheeky takeaway. The food is always great quality, well prepared and good value. The staff are very helpful and welcoming. Always a good choice.

I had not visited the Picante for a few years but was pleasantly surprised on our recent visit. Place was nice and clean and was given a nice welcome by the waitress. The menu had a very good selection to choose from and the prices...were pretty good. Choose from filled rolls, panni’s, toasties, full breakfasts, full meals, pizzas, kebabs, coffees, tea and a selection of cakes. Sit in or takeaway.More

Called in here whilst passing for a light lunch. Basic tables and simple menu, think burgers. Service was efficient and friendly enough. I ordered a cheese and tomato toastie. I was not given a choice of bread. The food was OK. My pot of tea...was minute. Prices were probably average.More
