Good food, service was reasonable - except for the guy who kept asking if we wanted a baked potato with almost... everythign we ordered.
Covid rules were a bit too relaxed. Notices on the widows stating that masks must be worn in all areas, including toilets. However, the frst member of staff we encountered was not wearing a mask - he did wear one later so no reason to think he had any medical exemption.
There was no encouragement to sign the contact register - simply a sheet of paper and pen at one of the doors. You could come in from another doorway where there was no register.
No one way system, which would be very easy to implement.
Tables were way too close had the place been busy - it wasnt during our visit, so no issues, but if it had been then social distancing would not be in place - not that we would have stayed had that been the case.

Nothing to complaint about but nothing special either. The location by the boat tours is convenient and the prices and... food quality are around what you would expect for a touristic spot.read more

We were stopping off in Fort Augustine for a quick bit of sightseeing and a bite to eat. We had hungry kids and looking... for a place which catered for Vegetarians. We were pointed in the direction of The Moorings which we may not have, otherwise, noticed.

The owner was lovely and very helpful, whilst we only had a jacket potato and Mediterranean pasta the food was very tasty and portion sizes were very good.

I have no complaint but only compliment.read more

Very lovely cheese burger with salad and coleslaw filling that made it nice and moist.

The steak and cheese had a... lovely slightly smoked flavour to, and this was a very decent meal for the price.read more

On a very wet and windy evening on our way back to our holiday cottage we were looking for somewhere to eat! We... contacted ‘The Moorings’ on route and explained we were a party of 8 adults and 2 teenagers and could they accommodate! On arrival we were welcomed and given complimentary olives, dips and bread while we waited for our food. The service was above and beyond, the food consisted of good sized portions and amazing. Would thoroughly recommend! Thank you.read more

We did not feel attended.
Despite we have highlighted that my Fiancée has severe dairy intolerance, they put a bread... on her plate, made with butter.
The food was fine but this place would be troubled without its prime location.

Great location. Just next to the canal where you can take the ferry for a ride in Loch ness. Good vegetarian options... unlike other restaurants in the area. Delicious pizza, sandwiches and onion rings. Plus the service is quick. The owners seemed to enjoy their job at the restaurant. The music they played complimented with the location. We really had a great time!read more

Great food. Not sure why the other two posted severely bad reviews. The tour bus arrived on Wednesday and we all went... out to get dinner. Every single restaurant was full except for this one, I assume because of the bad reviews two people posted. Had spaghetti bolognese, pasta with seafood, moussaka, and chicken in mushroom pie. All were tasty. It is now 2 days past and all of us are well. Services fine though waiters don't speak very good English.read more

Most disgusting food we've eaten in Scotland. Had a chicken and mushroom pie and chips. Mostly made from tinned soup.... The chips were fried at least twice and put in a microwave. Partner had steak pie. Can't find the words to explain how bad it was. Avoid this dreadful place and get a sandwich or something else elsewhere. Not even worth one star. Tourist trap. Left the meal hardly eaten.read more

5 stars for a small town dinner.
We ate here twice during our visit in Fort Augustus. The restaurant is busy during... the day so expect a bit of a wait but it is worth the wait.
Last night we orderd the Hawaiian pizza and two side salads, the food was delicious and fresh. Takeaway only took 10 minutes. Good sized portions.

We stayed one night here while on a highland tour. The Loch Ness guest house was very welcoming when we arrived. The... room was wonderful, bright and airy, and made a great use of the space. Our room had an attached bathroom that was compact, but very easy to use. Everything was clean and in good condition with wonderful extra touches (providing local handmade soup and a little stuffed highland cow to great us in the room). The bed was definitely firm but I had no trouble sleeping on it. The location is perfect walking distance from local restaurants, bars, and shops.read more

We stopped into Fort Augustus on our way through and found this gem of a restaurant. Best meal we've had this trip! I... have been craving Donners for 15 years since trying them in Germany and this was EVERYTHING I REMEMBERED. So wonderful! Attentive staff great range on the menu.read more

I live near this place and nobody I know will go there because it is so very bad. A pig sty is cleaner than this cafe.... The person who said they own it has also left good review for this awful place, proving they are not honest.

The locals do not eat here, most of us have been ill from eating at this filthy place. Only tourists eat here. Eat here at you own risk!read more

I dropped in looking for dinner with my travel partners. We were a bit skeptical at first about the breadth of... different menu items. As it turned out, they made a very good fish and chips, doner kebab, and roast chicken for us. Moreover, the service was very warm and professional. I’d recommend to anyone looking for a pleasant lunch or dinner in Ft Augustus.read more

Terrible. Waited half an hour for three sandwiches and the most flavourless bowl of lentil soup I've ever had. Even... with a liberal amount of salt and pepper I could only stomach half of the orange water. Even the bread roll was burnt on one side! Wait staff are clueless. The takeaway is clearly the most popular bit and it shows. Don't bother and go elsewhereread more
