Food is a bit pricey, but the staff and location are great. We arrived earlier than their opening time, but let us in anyway.

We stayed in the cottage next door and the guest book raved about this place and we were not disappointed, food was lovely and the restaurant is also done to a high standard. Staff very helpful and friendly. The best meal we ate in Skye and will be back next year!

I took my boyfriend here for his birthday dinner at the end of October, and as usual it was a fantastic evening. The food is lovely (the lamb shank! God, it's so good!!), proper home cooked meals which I don't mind paying a bit more for, with a great drinks list - I can personally recommend the gooseberry wine and... More

really lovely location and fantastic atmosphere in this restaurant which used to be the school for Dunvegan children. Took our twin daughters aged 5.5yrs and the childrens menu was great. The food was delicious, fresh and local produce used. Thoroughly recommend a visit.

Fantastic seafood and service. Nice setting in the old school and lively view of the sunset if you're seated at the window. Langoustines were delicious and starters were almost a meal in themselves!

We went there as a couple, during off season. No booking problem, I think the Isle of Skye is a bit less frequented during that time. I had the Haggis as a starter and Beef Shin as main, and she had the Salmon fillet. Everything was delicious and the waitresses were really nice! The main room looks great as is... More

An amazing surprise in such a remote area. The restaurant was buzzing with people, the waitresses were very pleasant and attentive, the menu selection was great and most importantly the food was beyond our wildest expectations! Even the traditional dish had an unusual and very aesthetic presentation fit for a Michelin star restaurant. And it didn't break the budget!
