The Lovat Brasserie served some of the finest food that we tasted during our two-week tour of Scotland and should not be missed whether staying at the Lovat Loch Ness Hotel or somewhere else in Fort Augustus, or just passing through. The setting is upscale,...More

Decided to find a place for breakfast in town and this was at the top of the list. Very nicely decorated and the service was great. Food was of no disappointment. I am planning to go there again.

This is not a cheap night out but well worth every penny - save room for dessert as these are AMAZING!

This should have at least one Michelin Star. The food was beautiful. Everything was presented in the most artistic way. I had the Duck and liver parfait- I could have just had that with the delicious bread they served- then I had venison- it was...More

We are delighted you enjoyed your previous experiences so much so to return for a 3rd visit, however it is disappointing to learn you do not like our improvements. We have slightly changed our concept in the Brasserie, since the closure of our other restaurant,...More

We were part of the private dinner party where the reviewer called it 'confusion'. Mistakes happen and can be rectified. Our choice of pork was tough, dry and very chewy. The server was pleasant and seemed to be doing her best to satisfy the group...More

Can I ask if you mentioned your issues to anyone on the night as it is very unusual for us to ignore a customer’s comment. If we are asked to rectify something then we would gladly do so where possible - it is very hard...More

Our fine dining experience in the Brasserie at the Lovat hotel where the ambience and service were great, was totally ruined by the tiny, tiny portions. Seriously, this was the worst reincarnation of 1980's Nouvelle Cuisine we could ever imagine. I had the saddle of...More

Thanks for your question - the hotel opens from 6am and breakfast is served 7:30 - 9:30am (8:00 - 10:00am Sunday) and we are more than happy to offer continental breakfast before this time on request.
