Having stayed at this hotel many years ago, we decided as we were in the area to pay another visit for dinner. Just trying to get an aperitif was a job in itself. The waiter spoke little English. I asked for a G & T and he asked what gin I would like. I suggested Tanqueray & he went off... More

We thought the food presented was all of excellent quality though the daily menu offered a very limited choice - fish or rabbit - and one of us doesn't eat fish. However we couldn't fault the flavours and quality. The bread was excellent - so good we had seconds and that was quite filling but worth it! At the hotel... More

Our stay at The Torridon couldnot have been nicer. The restaurant was a wonderful enhancement of our time there. This is a world class restaurant -- the chef is amazingly talented. The food and service were exquisite.

I cannot say enough good things about the Torridon 1887, and the Torridon Hotel itself. We stayed the night so decided we had to do dinner where we were staying. As with the hotel they did not disappoint. Fresh made in house bread, was fantastic. The four course meal was amazing, from cheese plates to venison and beef. Each dish... More

We had a fantastic meal with the vegetarians raving in our party of 4 as much about their vegetables and their preparation as I did about my fantastic Highland beef. The service was impeccable and the desserts sublime. Everything perfect!

The staff were extremely friendly and not rushed which set a great tone for the evening. The food was delicious but I recommend having a pre dinner drinks and canapes in the drawing room / sitting room before going through to dine. After dinner certainly have a look at (or ideally try) a whisky from their famous whisky and gin... More

Good but perhaps not great. Had honeymooned in the hotel many years ago, but it was a bit full and pricey this time round so we just sprung for dinner while staying locally. We enjoyed the evening, it was perhaps a bit expensive for what it was. Still pretty good quality though, not a disappointment, just not amazing. Lovely view... More
