Red Skye is a welcome exception to those pretentious restaurants on Skye which exist upon reputations earned long ago and now charge extortionate prices that their food and service no longer merit. As soon as you walk through the door you are made to feel welcome. This friendliness is maintained throughout your meal without becoming over familiarity. You may even... More

We were told to book a table - and so glad we did! Being greeted at the door by the owner was a fine start to a great evening. It's a small place, so tables are not easy to get - plan ahead! The owner chef made a point to come speak to every table - a nice touch and... More

When you go to a restaurant that your hotel recommends, you are often unpleasantly surprised - this recommendation was spot on though - our landlady had called ahead to make sure we'd get the table and arrived to a jam packed full place (got the last table). The food was amazing - starters refined with meat and fish cooked to... More

The owners of the Red Skye were extremely helpful in accommodating a large party at an awkward time, also turning the meal round within exacting timescales. As we were a large party, they also volunteered to give us a somewhat reduced option menu at a special (reduced) price, which given the quality and quantity of the food was extremely worthwhile....

We have just had a fantastic 3 course meal at this restaurant and would like to say thank you for a lovely evening. Service was very quick and staff including owners were very friendly. Food is beautifully prepared and served, and is delicious. The raspberry creme brûlée was exceptional - it had fresh raspberries which was wow! Well done -... More

My wife and I visited on a day trip to skye. Our stop here was the best part of our day trip. The food was exceptional yet reasonably priced. We received a warm and personable reception from the chef and his wife. The restaurant is warm and cosy, with views over the sea. There were a number of specials alongside... More

The chef is a master. The scalops were perfect and wow the blood pudding and sauce was impeccable. Also had the venison and was delicious. The veggies on the side were a welcomed addition and perfectly cooked--not over cooked as some do--with a nice crunch. The food was local and so was the beer. I don't drink but had a... More

Even the combination of an awkward vegan diet and a very delayed arrival didn't upset the hosts at Red Skye. The food, both vegan and fishy, was lovely, and the chef and other staff couldn't have been more accommodating and helpful. Highly recommended.

Just love the Red Skye. Everything about it is great, the informal friendly atmosphere, the chef coming out from the kitchen to check that everyone is happy with their food, and wow can John, the chef, cook - his food is devine. If it's not on the menu just ask and if he's got it, he'll cook it you -... More

We dined here early on the first night of our 15 night stay in the cottage next door, Tigh Roisin (see my separate review of that, searching on "Tigh Roisin cottage" in TripAdvisor). The restaurant is situated directly on the Southern side of the A87 main road in Breakish and so is very accessible and easy to find. There is... More
