We have dined here many times with no complaints but my meal on Saturday was horrible. I ordered macaroni cheese with crispy bacon. Sounded lovely. Sadly not. The base of the cheese sauce was neither a white sauce or bechamel but looked and tasted like water thickened with cornflour. As for the crispy bacon! Lots of soft white fat with...

We were staying at Cameron House and decided to visit Duck Bay as we hadn't been there for around 30-40 years. We were pleasantly surprised by the surroundings, a very impressive layout and we were led to a window table overlooking the loch. We were only in for a drink but we asked to see the menu in case we...

Great location, wonderful views, cheerful service, terrible food. The chips appeared to be last night's reheats, fish over cooked and dry, Cajun chicken like shoe leather. It's a good pub style menu with lots of choice, shame no one in the kitchen appears to know what they're doing.

Went here with a group of family for a birthday meal food was tasty and served quickly. Staff went out there way to play happy birthday through the speakers and brought the cake out. Good customer service would return again.

Had another great meal at the Duck Bay Marina. The steaks are cooked to perfection and staff are at the most attentive. As we live in Australia we haven't been there since 2006, the restaurant looks great after the renovations. The view is amazing.

Good pub food. Overpriced, however the setting makes up for it to some degree. Kids menu appears frozen/microwaved. Visiting the Highlands and certainly the best journey break. Efficient, friendly service.

My partner and I visited for dinner on Friday 23rd December 2016. The restaurant is lovely inside, very friendly, helpful and welcoming staff, beautiful views and most importantly delicious food! We visited last year for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed it so we were looking forward to going back. PS A huge congratulations to the couple that got engaged that night...
