Order the Donner!!! It was AMAZING - the portions are gigantic, but that's besides the point. The flavor is... incredible, we seek out donner places wherever we travel and this is the best hands down. The garlic sauce is incredible as well. The chili sauce is spicy, but it's automatically served on the side. They have dine-in and take away.read more

Popped in here for a bite to eat after a day out. The food is good, nothing special but good enough for a light bite.... We had jacket potatoes which apparently are only on the lunch menu but the man said he'd do them anyway. All of the staff were polite and friendly. They smiled and talked to my 6 month old and even took him for a walk around the kitchen. All around a nice experience. Thank youread more

Haggis is something I could get used to having, although the sweet potato was watery tasting. The breaded mushrooms... were nice and crunchy with juice on the inside and the seafood pizza was steaming delicious. Only the fries disappointed, arriving all soft and mushy like they had forgotten to fry them.read more

Good food, but even better staff. We ate here last week, didn't order much as we weren't very hungry. My husband really... enjoyed his pizza though. The staff were so lovely and attentive. The chef came out to have a wee chat with us and the baby and gave her a bottle of juice and chatted to us a wee bit about his girls. The waiter was so friendly too. Would definitely recommend. Small business run by some lovely lads 👍read more

Visited a few days ago. Since we have a dog we were only allowed outside. The seating area was absolutely filthy. Food... on tables, everything sticky and scruffy. Food wasn't too bad, but nothing special. Nice coffe though. Overall experience wasn't great. In a spot like this, they could really thrive if they have made a bigger effortread more

We went for coffee and ordered three coffees for take away. When we asked for the amount to pay, the person said £55!... Asked again and he said £55! Gave him a long stare, and then he acted cheeky and said oh, it's £5.5. Asked him again, 3 coffees for £5.5? And then he finally said no, it's £8.3. Considering its a touristy location, they are trying their luck to mug people by overcharging, not realising that UK residents can visit them too. Such a shame as the coffee was actually quite good. Wish they were decent enough to not treat people like this. Also, one of the rare places in the Highlands that didn't allow dogs, though, not rating them on it as it is a personal preference but it's quite rare to see that there.read more

We were canoeing the great glen for the Anam Cara Fasgadh charity and stopped in fort Augustus after some tough weather... and had our evening meal here, the staff were very accommodating to the size of our group, they were very friendly and welcoming, and the the server Adam was incredibly nice and very funny and it was a very welcome reintroduction into society after two days wild camping. The food and drinks were delicious and we would all definitely go back.read more

Biggest tourist trap ever. They are serving frozen food. This was the most disgusting salmon and "vegetables I've had... in my life. I heard a couple complain because they were sold a canned drink that was 1 year out of date. Staff are also quite rude and come across as arrogant.Update: I threw up twice later in the day after eating this food. Please be careful.read more

Tourist Trap Alert. Shocking food quality and rude and threatening customer serviceWish I can give 0 star. DO NOT GO... to this restaurant. Our food was late and on asking about it nicely for first time, we were given extremely rude response. We let it go thinking it could be owner's misunderstanding.Then we asked for ketchup with fries and were threatened !!! This came out of nowhere and we just left the place after paying our bill. We were a family with young kids.Wish I can report owner/waiter to police for verbal abuse and threat but did not wanted to ruin our holiday.I request to avoid this place.read more

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.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.

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.

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
