The cooking is modern and fresh at this airy Inverness restaurant, with dining tables set over two spacious open-plan levels, most with a view across the River Ness. The fixed-price lunch for about $15 is an excellent value with dishes such as seared fillet of sea-trout with spring onion and Dijon mustard potato salad.
