  • We will be back! (Google Review, Jan22)

    Excellent service. Front of house from Asturias, Spain was so cheery and helpful. Greeted us with a big smile. Fraser made us the BEST pineapple mocktails. Ask him what he can make for you! Helpful and attentive, cheery and fun to chat with. The food was so delicious. I ordered the black pudding starter and the pork belly main dish. An espresso to follow. My friend had the starter of a generous portion of wonderful, Scottish smoked salmon followed by a fragrant main dish of hake. Perfect. Make reservations! We will be back!

  • Exceptional (Google Review, JAN22)

    My husband and I had a wonderful time here for dinner. Our server Fraser exhibited some of the best service we experienced in Inverness. Exceptional.

  • Amazing (Trip Advisor Review, Oct21)

    Best meal we had in a long time. Salmon with mussels were amazing. I haven’t had anything that nice in long time! My girlfriend had falafel and really enjoyed it. Stuff was lovely and so helpful. Loved our drinks. And the view is incredible. It’s our new fav restaurant in Inverness. And the price is so low as for what you are getting. We used to come here in last years. But we like it so much better right now. Great job to the new owner and the whole team. You did amazing! Definitely change for better.

  • First Class Lunch (TripAdvisor, Dec21)

    Our lunch today (16th Dec) was truly first class. Great atmosphere, attentive service but not pushy. The food was well prepared and served hot. Good value for money and we WILL be back! Well done!

  • A must try when visiting Inverness (TripAdvisor, Jan22)

    Fantastic meal from start to finish! Each course was beautifully presented and delicious! We had crab and avocado, the venison special and warm carrot cake & bramble Eton mess. It really was a memorable experience eating in the Kitchen Brasserie in Inverness. Highly recommended and we will definitely return!
