54th wedding anniversary and it was a great choice for a perfect meal. It is not for everyone and is unlike any other establishment within 60 miles, or more. I had the best oysters ever (not the kind we get in another well-known expensive place...More

Stunning little restaurant in quiet lochside location. Access is by single track road but please don't be put off. The food here is as good as you will find in any of Scotland's high end city centre restaurants. The menu is shorter, but on our...More

We dined recently at Inver following an appearance by the chef on a tv show- maybe not the best reason. We loved the setting and how atmospheric it was. We also loved the stripped back nature of the bar / dining space. However we were...More
