Best place for breakfast and lunch in the Highland Capital. Always quality meals with flair. If you have to queue, that's a good sign as this is a popular Restaurant but the wait is worth it, you won't be disappointed. Very friendly staff .

Had a late breakfast at Girvans after the first bout of shopping in Inverness. Had the full breakfast, a great feed complete with toast and and a nice pot of tea. Service was excellent - staff were very polite and friendly.

Nice place, friendly staff. The food however, not the best. My friend got a chicken salad and literally got a bowl of salad leaves and croutons lucky if there was 3 little bits of chicken in it and it was over £10.
