We have visited this restaurant for lunch on recommendation from our host. Staff was friendly yet professional, food was excellent and service was very quick. If we are ever in Fort William I would definitely visit again.

We had reservations here for dinner and really enjoyed the views. It's right on the water, and as such parking is a bit of a challenge. There are a couple of spots in front but don't count on them - there is a pay parking...More

Glad we booked, fabulous location great food. Limited choice for the meat eating 4 children in our party, however they were able to share the steak. Would definitely recommend.

This is definitely a great location to sample local seafood. Located on a pier overlooking the loch, it is worth asking for a seat near the windows (apparently you might be able to see otters playing). The Cullen Skink was great and the Hake and...More

I'm unsure if it's geared for children. I suspect not but lunchtimes or very early evening might be ok for children. There were no children there during our visits.
