    Beautiful. Great location, beautiful views of the river from the huge glass windows. Food excellent quality and well cooked. My sea bass wrapped in parma ham was perfect. I just wish the skin of the sea bass had been removed before the Parma ham was wrapped round it. Very warm and friendly service a really lovely restaurant.

    Great value for great lunch! Not only does the Kitchen have the best views in Inverness, it also provides consistently good food, great service, friendly atmosphere and great value for money. Today's lunch was no exception. The Smoked Haddock Gratin was absolutely delicious and followed by the Beef and Smoked Bacon Pie which was one of the best I have had in some time. The house wines are always good but today I tried one of the 'special' wines - superb! I was unfortunately too full to attempt a dessert! As always, it was great value for money and is the reason why it is always full. The staff here always make you feel welcome and provide a quick and friendly service. A definite recommendation.

The staff were really friendly and the price was reasonable. I thought I had gone to heaven when I tasted the Creme Brûlée, amazing! If ever in Inverness again I will be visiting The Kitchen

    Stunning! Just back from Inverness today. Went too The Kitchen on Mon for Lunch. We were absolutely delighted by the welcome , service and of course the quality of the fare . We were also seated on the second floor with a stunning view of the River Ness. If you go up to Inverness then you must visit Lee and his fantastic team for an unmissable treat in the capital of the Highlands.

    Lovely site, lovely food. We eat in this restaurant quite a lot. Mainly we go for the early evening menu which is good value at about £10 for two courses. There is a good choice on the menu and the food is lovely. The staff are very friendly and the service is good. The restaurant itself overlooks the river and is glass fronted. It is nice to sit with a glass of wine and good food watching the world go by. The dinner menu is larger but more expensive though still good value as the food is guaranteed to be lovely.

    Good and lovely view over the River Ness. Luckily we managed to get a table as we had not booked, we waited 5 minutes for them to sort a table out and we were so pleased we did. The food, service and atmosphere was great. We sat up stairs and had a fab view of the River and all the goings on outside. My husband had the seafood and I had chicken, very well presented and hot. Would of liked more vegetables but we id not asked for more, so that was our mistake. Will go back again and will book. We visit Inverness a lot as we have family up here, we stay at the Columba and eat with our family at their home but always go out at least twice during our stay. This was a good choice.

At lunchtime you can get a very good deal and early evenings are reasonable too, but this time I was a little late and arrived at 7.30 and had to pay the full evening meal price. A super place to eat, especially if you arrive at the right time!

    Smoked fish to die for! My friend and I ordered the smoked fish platter to start with (cold and hot smoked salmon and white fish), which was definitely the highlight of the meal - absolutely amazing! We then had the duck, which was good and the chicken stuffed with haggis - also good. We finished with the best cheesecake I've ever had - very nice and airy with banoffee. Definitely a great place with a lovely ambiance.

    Wow! We would often look across the river from our hotel at a place that looked interesting and was always full. On the last day thought we'd try a place our hotel suggested for lunch, only to find out it was this place. We got the 6.95 starter and main and were both VERY impressed with the food, I was very impressed with the bill! Has a great view of the river and the staff were friendly. We would certainly recommend it. Its not a big place, and spread over a few floors, we went with a 1yr old, they had baby seat and we just left the pram down stairs to diner upstairs.

    Dinner sorted. The Kitchen was recommended (along with The Mustard Seed(same owners) by the Daviot Lodge. We received a complimentary glass of wine (on receipt of a slip from Daviot Lodge). We were not disappointed. Food & service were very good and we had chosen off the early dinner menu at £10.95 each for a starter & main course. We both chose the shredded chicken to start and the rump steak as our main. Everything was excellent, we even managed a dessert as it all looked so good. We were on the 2nd floor of the restaurant and I enjoyed watching the chefs preparing the meals as I could see down into the kitchen. They never stopped. We have been in many other establishments and paid much more than £40 for 2 people for a 3 course meal with drinks. We would certainly recommend The Kitchen (maybe try The Mustard Seed next time we are in Inverness)

    The Kitchen is a lovely restaurant on the banks of the River Ness, in the Highland capital of Inverness. It is on 3 floors with perfect views with a lot of the seats having superb views to the River and the Castle. The menu is varied. The lunch time menu is £6.95 for 2 courses and Early Evening Meal for 2 courses is, I think £10.95. The fact that the price is very good value, it certainly does not affect the quality or the quantity of food. They are all good portions and delicious produce, a lot of it locally produced. We have eaten regularly for several years at the Kitchen and its sister restaurant the Mustard Seed. We have always had brilliant, friendly service and the food has always been out of this world. Would highly recommend a visit....ask for the loyalty card if you go. Its well worth it for every visit you can have it stamped and get free coffee, deserts, meals, depending on amount of stamps you have. It is very convenient restaurant for Eden Court Theatre. Just a five minute walk and a 5 minute walk from the High Street in Inverness.

For such excellent value I must admit my cynical head was on as we went in ....but what a treat ,the food was fantastic, the service was fantastic, the price was fantastic..all in a lovely setting. Just a wee warning though...there is a price to pay for liking their house red too much..our final bill came to £43..my fault though as this was mostly my alcohol...OOPS! Alba

Couldn't believe that our table was on the top floor right by the panoramic window overlooking the River Ness and Inverness Castle - what a setting.The waitresses who served us were also pleasant with ready smiles. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was excellent and nicely presented. All in all a super dining experience and would thoroughly recommend. Normally busy - both lunch time and evening so book.

    Worth a visit. If you are into seafood try the mussels as a starter in this restaurant. They come in like a large round container with a lid which is used for the empty shells. The mussels are cooked to a "T" and the garlic/wine sauce is just amazing. It has a very good choice of food on the menu. The chicken with black pudding is fabulous. The meals when they reach the table are piping hot. Very efficient and friendly staff. Would suggest that you book a table or you might not get in when you get there. Very busy and a very popular restaurant

They called and got a reservation for us. Short walk over the bridge, and there we were. Sat on top level with beautiful full window view of the river and the bridge. As it stays light until @ 11 pm in Inverness in the summer, we did not get a night time view...bet that is stunning. Food was great, dessert was fabulous, service was young and casual. Couldn't have enjoyed it more.

    Luxuriant Birthday treat! Had an exquisite birthday meal here on 16th of June. The view from the restaurant is wonderful and the building itself is very striking. To start I had prawn, baby onion and chorizo skewers, simply cooked but wonderful and my partner had duck plum an hoisin confit wrapped in puff pastry. I opted for the whole sea bass from the daily specials board as a main, served stuffed with potato and salmon. The fish was delicious and the whole dish prepared with care and attention to detail. The panache of seafood, with monkfish, king scallops and prawns over a tomato and curried rice salad was described by my partner as being out of this world! She was especially complimentary of the prawns, which is saying something as having lived in Spain she lived mainly on a diet of fresh seafood. For dessert we tasted the mouthwatering apple crumble and a delicious cheesecake.

    Delicious food with excellent service at reasonable price. We went as a group of 15 for an early evening supper after a matinee in nearby Eden Court Theatre. Between 5 and 7 pm, there is a cheaper two-course £10.95 early evening menu which was the same as lunch menu but a steak was available for an additional fee. Serving 15 is no mean feat but the staff were right on the ball at every stage but we were never hurried and were allowed ample time to eat and chat. All of the food was cooked perfectly and served with lovely soft wholemeal bread and lots of vegetables. Fish dishes of salmon and sea bass were especially appreciated with crispy tasty skins. My take on a burger was excellent with home made pattie from first class steak and served on small slices of ciabatta. Coffee was extra but averaged £2 per cup. They also have a loyalty card to encourage you to return again and again with rewards. There is a sister restaurant called the Mustard Seed with whom they share this loyalty card.

When I said I would prefer a better location with a view the staff said as soon as another table became available we could move. Within 10 minutes they had us seated on the 3rd floor (no elevators but not steep flights). View was awesome. The food was fresh and delicious and the people we were seated next to were locals who were delightful to talk with. Shared dessert with them and then walked back to our hotel. Really nice evening, reasonable cost, great service and value. Don't miss it!!!
