This small but friendly restaurant is located in the town of The Kyle of Lochalsh. There is plenty of choice on the menu and the chef, Ann, certainly knows how to deliver food to a high standard. The waiting staff are also very attentive. I visited this establishment twice this week and was thoroughly delighted with the meals that I... More

This restaurant is just off the main thoroughfare, a hidden gem up a flight of stairs. The food was excellent - I had Indonesian Chicken with peanut sauce and a tomato soup starter. The bread was delicious, the peanut sauce just right, and the chicken was perfect. The soup, while nothing spectacular, was spot on what I like in tomato... More

Just like stepping into your mothers front room. As you enter the single door on the street you climb the stairs to a cosy small restaurant tastefully decorated particularly if you like Holland . The chef owner is Dutch and the food fresh and all cooked to order so don't be in a hurry but good food takes a while.... More

Second visit to this restaurant and can't fault it. Was in with a group of colleagues and had a fantastic meal. We work all over Scotland and we all agree this is the best place we have eaten in. The five of us all had food to a very high standard all piping hot. The service was faultless and I... More

This is our second visit to The Waverley in the last two years. It is a small place with a great menu, containing locally sourced and well cooked food. I tried the scallops to start with and the venison as a main course. The food was delicious and well cooked. The waitress, Kirsty, was friendly and very helpful, giving us... More

... We'll not so much a find as having the sense to follow the recommendation of our B&B's owner. It's a small upstairs room with half a dozen tables,a short but varied menu (plus specials) and a modest choice of drinks. The service was fast and friendly, the food was tasty and well presented. The hand dived scallops were lovely,... More
