I was unfortunate to have visited this “restaurant” last night, to say it’s a restaurant that offers what it says on the menu is so untrue.
A Mediterranean restaurant that serves white sliced bread, with butter instead of pitta bread says it all. Then when...you ask for pitta bread they say it’s not available in Scotland.
Look out your window and across the road is a Tesco they have loads of pitta bread!!
Ordered a meze to find one of the dips fizzy.
But instead of trying to explain this to the waiter, they were more interested in asking 2 couples to leave as they had caught the staff out lying.
A Turkish man and Indian lad were so rude to the customers all because they asked for what was on the menu and they didn’t get it.
Apparently customers are always wrong here.
All they too were asking for what’s on the menu and were shouted to leave. The only people entitled to shout is the customer as your ripping them off.
Another review says AVOID, AVOID, AVOID, they are the best and most honest words I have read about this restaurant. It really is that bad.
Also, If you look at any positive reviews these are mainly from reviewers with 1 or 2 posted reviews, so be aware I think there reviews might not be as independent as they could be??
Do yourself a favour don’t go in, as you will regret it. Diner beware!!!!More
First time here and last time! We arrived for lunch. There was a lunch time specials menu advertised outside the door and as our student daughter had offered to pay, we decided this was our best option. There was no one else in the restaurant...at the time. We were shown to our seats and given menus. But having looked at the menus we realised there were not the lunchtime menus so we had to ask for these. We choose the Meze Trio and Crab Cakes both with homemade bread. When they arrived the Meze had obviously just been poured out of a jar and we had 2 slices each of shop bought baguette. And the crab cakes were burnt. The owner/manager asked if we were on holiday, we said no we live here. Then he started chatting. The mains arrived all of the same quality, out of a jar, cooked from frozen and with no taste. They charged us £2.25 for a canned coke! When we came to pay they said there credit card machine "was broken". This should have been explained to us before we had even ordered that we could not pay by card. Our daughter had to walk a quarter of a mile to reach the nearest ATM! We told the waiter we were not happy with the food and he just shrugged his shoulders. The owner/manager came out and asked how was our meal so again we said we were not happy with it. He just smirked and shrugged his shoulders and walked off. Terrible food and couldn't careless attitude from the owner/manager and staff. Will never come here again or advise anyone else too. Not very good for any poor unsuspecting tourist who might be tempted to eat there and certainly does not give Inverness a good image.More
Central, clean, friendly staff. I would travel back to Inverness just for the Lasagne! We went elsewhere the night before and wish we had found this first as I wouldn't have eaten anywhere else again....delicious!
Went for an early quick meal with friends. A very friendly waiter but down hill fast from there. We all had pizza which had very soggy bases and toppings that were no better at £12.95 each they were also a complete rip off. I hope...the waiter gets a job somewhere else so that he can serve decent food.More
Thought we’d try something different from the regular choices, giving a small independent restaurant a chance.
Firstly I asked for a glass of water (needed to take tablets) only to be told that the weather outside is bad, so the tap water would not be...any good, and was told to have bottled water instead.
Since when did we drink from rivers?
Felt he just wanted to sell us
We had the 2 course lunch special, ordered Calamari as a starter, to be honest it was awful, it was batter with I don’t know what was inside! Complete waste of money.
When the main meals came out, they were a lot better, but not great.
Would I visit again? In one word ‘No’
There’s better quality and value out there
Advice to the restaurant take the Calamari off the menuMore
Booked to go here on our first night in Inverness as the menu looked reasonable and it is very central, big mistake. Friday night and we were the only two in the restaurant, alarm bells should have been ringing. My partner's meal arrived with half...the ingredients missing along with all the taste, a dressing of pomegranate with no pomegranate!? instead smothered in cheap vegetable oil. Barely edible but tired and hungry from travelling over 200 miles we ate most after complaining about the quality of the food. No offer to take food away and produce something corresponding to the menu, excuses offered: thought pomegranate had gluten in it!!, this was a dish advertised as gluten free with said dressing! the chef was from an agency and was not good and would not be back! When presented the bill, I said I was disappointed that we were charged full price for the sub-standard food and missing ingredients, more excuses regarding poor chef but no offer to reduce bill. I paid bill in full but told the waiter that I was so disappointed that having complained and his agreeing with my complaint but not reduced my bill, I would not be leaving a tip for only the second time in 30 years. Waiters reply, we don't need your money it's not important, I don't care. This is why this restaurant is near empty every night, worst place I have had the misfortune to visit in the lovely city of Inverness. Our experiences everywhere else we went was very good.More
I came in around 8pm on Saturday night to have something to eat as I was working away from home. The place was so quiet and I honestly don’t know why. The food was brilliant. There wasn’t one thing wrong with my meal, all staff...were so friendly and checked on me as I contuied my meal. I will 100% return if I ever come back to Inverness.More
Wish we had read reviews. Should have known.. it was empty on a Saturday night. Ordered meze what we had was ok but no spicy sausage arrived and the bread was sliced white and a bit stale. On asking where was the sausage and pitta...bread we were told it had been busy at lunchtime and they’d sold out. Can’t believe they couldn’t have popped to local supermarket to at least buy some pitta bread!! Another party came in and on asking the same questions as us but in a slightly less tolerant way... were actually thrown out of the restaurant!
The waiter just kept telling everyone else they were from London as if they were the problem. It’s a shame because if only they had said from the outset they had sold out of bread (?) and sausage but could offer alternatives probably wouldn’t have had an issue. But to just serve the meal without saying a word and hope we didn’t notice or complain was not the way to do it! Noticed that everyone who did venture in ate very quickly and left probably never to return. The two words “captive market” spring to mind. Inverness is full of tourists and as such not going to be repeat business. So who cares. ☹️More
