As there are quite a lot of places closed on Sundays we decided to come here for lunch before visiting Dunvegan Castle. There were only 3 items to choose from on the main course that Sunday : Salmon fillet, chicken or curry, so we chose the Salmon (what else to chose when in Scotland !). It was very good and... More

We had dinner last week and enjoyed very much both the place and the food. The scallops were amazing, the venison and steak very nice, Wonderful pepper sauce. The staff was outstanding.

This place is very popular and we didn't get a table the first night, so booked ahead for the next day. The staff were very friendly and attentive, and the food well-presented and of a good quality, which one expects when paying prices slightly above the norm. But it was definitely worth it and I'd happily add it to my... More

An old school house which has been tastefully restored provides the backdrop for a surprisingly good restaurant which is a bit remote. The homemade breads are to die for! The menu is varied and the food lovely and very well presented. You will need reservations, especially if you want to eat on the early side. Definitely worth a visit!
