If you are going to serve fish, at least learn how to fillet it! The welcome we received when we stopped in to make reservations was cool and in different. Thought we would try it any way so kept our reservation, ( which they hadnt actually made!) The service was the same, the food mediocre at best. Don't waste your... More

This is a lovely little restaurant run by a husband and wife team. The food was really good and although we felt the A la Carte menu seemed a little on the pricey side the 2 course set menu was excellent value. Generous portions, nicely presented and very tasty. Would definitely return.

My wife and I visited the letterbox over Easter. We did find it strange that only one Lady was doing all the running around. Maybe because it was Easter. We ended up taking the soup, which was really good. Overall the service was really good, as was the food. Make a point of sampling the home made bread..

This small but well thought out modern estaurant on the main street in Newtonmore is a surprising treat for the visitor. Nothing overstated quite simple but the food is exceedingly well cooked and presented. Plenty choice on the menu the wait between courses suggested it was made from fresh ingredients. Delightful and not overpriced

A quiet spot with superb food. A clean sleek look and contemporary menu with a Scottish theme/twist. Very good value for money in this wee village in the stunning surroundings of the highlands of Scotland !

Visited this restaurant with my partner and it was easily the best meal we've had all year. Along with an al a carte and set menu, there is a range of specials. Everything we ordered looked amazing and tasted better. It was a delight to meet the chef as he spoke to all the patrons too. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend!
