Zizzi Inverness is truly one of the most stunning restaurants we have. One elevation is all glazed floor to ceiling - giving diners a truly amazing view of the river. Four local themes have been the inspiration behind the design of the new restaurant: the historic River Ness, boats, whisky distilleries and the Highlands. We asked Katy Thomson, a hugely talented recent graduate from the Edinburgh College of Art, to create a large scale illustration that which will become a unique feature of the restaurant. The other local themes have been translated into design features of the restaurant. A large wooden ceiling raft that is splintered at one end to replicate old boats, light fittings that look like buoys and a rope and pulley feature in the window. The contour lines of the Highlands and Lowlands are detailed through Ordnance Survey maps on the ceiling, whilst copper pipes throughout the restaurant give a nod to the famous distilleries. We look forward to seeing you!

    We were here for Valentine’s night and ordered from the 3 course special Valentine’s menu. We thoroughly enjoyed everything, menu choices, attentive and friendly waiter, lovely gin cocktails, beer and wine and easy ambience. The staff were happy and friendly and hard-working and worked well together as a team. Our waiter made us feel welcome and went out of his way to make sure our visit was a pleasant one. All in all an experience to be repeated.

    The team at Zizzi are always polite friendly and always have a smile. The food is excellent and I have never been disappointed in anything I have ever ordered. As you would expect at busy times if takes a little longer to get served but I am always happy to wait for such excellent quality food and service.

    Nice place - good atmosphere and friendly staff, but food not as good as it once was. Fried potatoes cold and very greasy, salad limp, fish over cooked. But! The tiramisu is as great as it's ever been.

    Restaurant was excellent, apart from the fact that they did not have a note of reservation for the table. Next time I will reserve directly to the restaurant and not through opentable, that was a waste of time.

    Hot food and good service even though the restaurant was extremely busy due to being the night before the Loch Ness Marathon. I had a pasta with chilli and whilst I like spicy food I think it was a bit too hot in terms of the chilli strength- certainly wouldn’t be for everyone and was pretty much all I could taste

    We had a meal there on 4 August that was fabulous, outstanding service by Chris and great food (Pasta Carbonara with Chorizo) We returned because of that and had anything but good food or service. I ordered the mushroom risotto. The seasoning was very bland and the rice was undercooked. I asked for salt and pepper and waited 15 minutes. Our server, a lady with reddish and various other color hair could have cared less. It seemed she did not really understand what we were saying and even when I said, “I did not like my food at all and crossed my silverware on the plate. Her reply was “oh that’s good.”’as she cleared my full plate. We then had to wait 25 minutes for our check. I’d love to return but it’s highly unlikely.

    Very disappointing food. All hot dishes had obviously been microwaved as they were so hot when served. The spaghetti carbonara was the worst I have ever tasted; almost tasted like the spaghetti was out of a tin, and the sauce was a strange orange colour. It was very bland, as were the other main dishes. Service was as would be expected; friendly but nothing outstanding. Disappointing experience.

    Never been to a Zizzi restaurant before so as we were staying in Inverness, just a 10 minute walk from here, I thought we would try it. I was shocked that such good quality, fresh food was served by a ‘chain’ restaurant. Everything cooked in front of you, very reasonable prices and right on the Inverness waterfront. Great great service, fabulous meal and will be visiting my local Zizzi very soon.
