Dores inn was once a lovely peaceful spot to enjoy the scenery and enjoy a bite to eat and drink, now there is the horrible beer garden with awful MFR blaring out also the plastic cups left that the staff are to busy to clean up so are blown onto beach and into Loch.It's obvious the staff can't cope, we ordered food which we had to chase up twenty minutes later, a staff member who along with other staff doing their best, said they were struggling to cope bacause another member had walked out. A customer arrived just after us and was told they had temporarily stopped serving food bacause it was too busy. Just had sandwiches so nothing much to say about that. Would not be in any rush to take visitors as somewhere to view Loch Ness. New owners have ruined it, shame.

Myself, wife and one year old went for lunch.
First time I've been there for a year but hasn't changed. Great service and most importantly great food. The macaroni was a instant hit with our one year old .
Thanks again to great staff for their excellent service, look forward to my next visit

I visited Inverness with a friend and ended up coming here for dinner twice in four days. The location is unmatched, the food is gorgeous and the staff were welcoming and efficient. The owners were present and personally welcomed many diners. Overall, a fabulous experience I can't recommend enough.

Fish very dry (possibly frozen) batter burnt with lots of black specks stuck to it. Beer at rip-off prices. Garden area overgrown, the windows filthy with paint flaking. As for the salt and pepper cruetts (what a joke). Give this place a miss, the only thing that is genuine are the flies and the midges.

With 3 friends I headed to the Dores Inn for dinner after work recently. I had an amazing aubergine and blue cheese burger in a brioche roll. A great alternative from my usual beef or venison and although delicious we had to wait an hour from when we arrived for it to be served. The waiter was apologetic, they clearly didn’t have enough staff on duty and the place was full and there was also people dropping in on the off chance of having their dinner there who were turned away. It won’t put me off going back, it was perhaps just an unfortunate night to have gone.
