may have reviewed this place before (?) but once again consistently good this time we took our two friends who were touring with us and they liked it too. Always getting there if you can to walk to the shoreline of Loch Ness to look down towards Fort William.

Visited by recommendation from the b&b we were staying at. Lovely meal which couldn't be faulted. Had a starter between us which was excellent then my husband had the burger and I had scampi. Good sized portion with good quality food. Chips were excellent - chunky but not greasy. Too full for dessert but it all looked lovely too! Would... More

My friends and I visited the Dores Inn as a group of 13 adults and 2 children and we had a great meal. Initially we had to wait around 25 mins for our pre-booked table but we were compensated by a complimentary drink at the bar, which was thoughtful. A lovely little pub with high class food, served beautifully and... More

Last night was one of the best meals we have had locally . The mussels were great and one of our party had scallops and he said they were superb . Two of us had Chateaubriand with pepper sauce on the side and it was amazing !!! Perfectly pink ! As was the fillet steak and lamb .

Incredible setting, just stunning. Fairly basic décor but cosy indoors. Must be lovely on a nice weather day as the views are amazing. Great service, friendly and efficient. The food was fabulous. Well priced for the standard. All three courses were delicious, especially the risotto (one of the best I've eaten anywhere in the world) and all beautifully presented. Highly... More

Great start with fantastic scallops. Out of two main courses one was good the other a little stodgy and the sweets looked great but mine had little flavour and the other was very firm, not what you would expect from a pannacota. I personally felt the staff were polite and helpful, although one was I felt quite loud. Maybe new... More
