We stayed at a lodge near the Cruin and walked down to Duck Bay most nights, but on my actual birthday we ate our evening meal here and it was beautiful. The little shop has gone now which gives more seating especially for the day for things like afternoon tea - the cake are amazing. The staff seem a lot...

Having previously visited we decided to return for afternoon tea in the new cafe. We paid £10.95 per person and there was two people, which is reasonably priced for what you get. The place was busy, but we never felt rushed and the staff couldnt have done enough. Would return again.

We went for a drive and stopped off as we love the food at duck bay. It was the 1st time we tried the new cafe and had the afternoon team. It was great value and nice and fresh. It was brought out quickly even though it was relatively busy. The atmosphere was relaxed and the staff were attentive. The...

We visited Duck Bay whilst staying at Cameron House next door. The place was absolutely top notch. The decor is lovely with two very large, mesmerising fish tanks in the restaurant. I can fully recommend the cocktails, they were mixed to perfection and I had one of the best ever Margarita's! The food was lovely too. I shared the seafood...

Stayed here 2 years ago with a party 16 and enjoyed it very much. This time stayed in Executive suite 2. What an uninterrupted panoramic view from 3 massive windows facing Loch Lomond. Would recommend the extra cost is well worthwhile. Yet again the food in the very large Loch side restaurant was absolutely delicious. The staff were also very...

We visited the duck bay marina on Friday 3rd march at lunchtime, just after our relatives got married in Glasgow.. We walked in and asked for a table for the newlyweds and a waiter showed us to a circular table in the corner which overlooked the loch and mountains in the distance, simply stunning. We all had a lovely lunch,...

Stopped here for lunch recently. So happy we did. View was lovely, got to see a seaplane land and take off while eating beautiful food served by very pleasant young man for a reasonable price. Ticked all the boxes.

Visited with six family members for Sunday lunch and it was really lovely. It's hard to beat such a beautiful location overlooking Loch Lomond while enjoying lovely fresh food. Very friendly staff good service and a great choice of menu. There's been a change to a lovely tearoom style area since I last visited (previously a shop) so this will...

Great views, very nicely decorated with elevated "fire pits" and lovely clean fish tanks. But it stopped there. The waiter was a bit rude telling, not asking us, to move our cutlery so he could put down plates, side plates etc and twice put a hot tea and coffee in front of and within reach of our toddler. 2 of...

This restaurant is in a very good location to look out over the loch while you eat. There is parking out side. The food was also very good. I would recommend this restaurant for both the food and the location.
