Very friendly staff. Fantastic food. Fair prices. And the chef will come to your table to see how you are. Ring first as it's very popular. The orange cheesecake is a must. .....mmmm

My wife and I visited the Red Skye on a Wednesday night having walked (or route marched) from our cottage in Broadford a mile and a half away. As others have said - do not be put off by the slightly tired exterior. We had a beautiful meal which was cooked to perfection (Langoustines amazing) and the staff were engaging... More

We visited on a cold and rainy night in April which made the warm welcome much appreciated! The food was freshly prepared and delicious and the wine was well chosen and sensibly priced. Don't miss this place if you're visiting the island, it's fantastic!

High quality local produce cooked to perfection. Simple environment in a converted schoolhouse. Very warm, friendly staff who cared about the customer's enjoyment of the meal.

We visited this restaurant last weekend whilst on a visit to Isle of Skye...What a hidden gem..The menu had a great variety of which we sampled the Lamb and Duck dishes which were cooked beautifully! To top this off the chef came out during service and asked each table if they were enjoying their dish which we feel was a... More

It doesn't look it for the outside, but this was one of the best restaurants we found during our trip through Scotland. The chef happily prepared a special dinner (because of food allergies) that was excellent. The service was wonderful and the staff were pleasant and helpful. We highly recommend the Red Skye.

Red Skye is in a converted school house. The exterior of the building does not do it justice. The dining area is warm and pleasant. The hosts, Lesley and John are friendly and welcoming. On arrival, Lesley greeted us at the door and organised our taxi at the end. The menu was reasonably inspired. Two of our party were disappointed... More

We went to this restaurants for twice during our trip in Isle of Skye. We tried venison steak, lamb shank and salmon, all of them were fantastic! On the second night we decided to go back and enjoy another meal there. The chef and the staff (or maybe the owner) were very welcoming and friendly. They remembered us on our... More

What else can you say about the superb quality of produce, consistency of food production and wonderful service at Red Skye restaurant. There are not enough words to describe how good Red Skye is, but I will try my best. It is one of the most fantastic restaurants my husband Bob and I have ever had the pleasure of eating... More
