Found this restaurant late. Was made to feel welcome although the waitress was flying solo and the restaurant was busy. Service was excellent and the food was very good.

We went here on the recommendation of our landlord, and we were pleasantly surprised: The food was excellent, the staff were attentive and the atmosphere relaxed, just like you would like in these surroundings. we also were impressed with the choice of vegetarian possibilities. Recommended.

We popped in here while on holiday in the highlands, based on the good reviews we'd read on Tripadvisor. It was a fairly busy evening but the service was good and the food prompt and absolutely delicious. Well worth a visit.

Lovely little restaurant serving a great choice of excellent food at a reasonable cost. Sadly, only a few people in when we were there, but this deserves to be patronised.
