When you decide to visit Loch Lomond Shores shopping centre The Kilted Skirley is definitely a place to stop off by. The gentleman (man wearing glasses who looked around the early 40’s) who seated my partner and I was a very professional individual he was more than happy to explain any questions that we had like if the fish was...

Great service and food. We have dined here a few times and it's always very good. Meals are freshly prepared, not microwaved and you definitely tell. Very reasonable prices for the high quality.

Out New Years Day and needed food, found this restaurant by chance and enjoyed a wonderful meal. Cooked to perfection and presented beautifully. Went back again today to see if it was as good or it was good because it was a holiday period on our first visit. Again not disappointed food cooked excellently and superbly presented. Would recommend this... More

Awful experience, the menu doesn't appear to have changed over the years. We thought we would give it one more go. I wish I'd just walked in and handed over the money and not stayed as it was the dining part that was awful, paying was fine, the card machine looked new, had all the usual card logos you would...

I did feel that some of the decor needed updating but you hardly notice that when you have a stunning view to look at, up the Loch. The food was beautifully presented and tasted lovely. My haggis was really good and the Whiskey sauce finished the meal perfectly. Portion sizes are good and it's reasonably priced. Although it is on... More

Stumbled across this restraint while browsing the shops outside next to the aquarium. This place would be even more lovely if it had been a sunny day as they have a balcony outside. I had a full Scottish breakfast which was really good and my partner had a Cajun chicken burger which he also enjoyed. Found it very well priced.... More

Visited here with an Itison voucher. Restaurant was warm and cosy. Staff friendly and welcoming. Good choice of food on menu. We had starters and mains. Food was piping hot and delicious. An enjoyable experience. Would certainly go again.
