No, I'm not just saying this because my sister happens to work there - or because both my brothers have also worked there at some point. Everything about The Ness was brilliant, from the menu to the decor and especially the view. Sadly, my sister wasn't working on the day we went for a meal (she actually came with me and the husband) so I can't even make a crack about the service.
My sister had managed to book us a table the day before to ensure we got one near the window. I wasn't sure this was going to be necessary as we visited at the end of tourist season and were having a late lunch, but the restaurant was still pretty busy when we arrived, which is always a good sign - especially when locals are eating there.
