Ate here on the recommendation of the B&B owners we were staying with. Got there late but they had held our reservation, which we were very happy about. Restaurant had a lovely warm feeling to it, with wait staff busy serving a fairly large number of people. Although the menu was quite varied, we ended up choosing the same meal... More

We happened to pass this restaurant during our trip to Skye and it was an absolutely amazing lunch in a very pleasant setting with friendly service! It really had no fault - we all had fish (salmon and hake) which was excellent, and do make sure you don't miss out on the chocolate mousse on the dessert menu. Heavenly!! We... More

Having not been here for a few years I was hopeful it would be as good as I remembered and I was not disappointed! Perfectly cooked scallops, follwded by a beautiful pheasant dish with sauce to die for and excellent pudding. Staff very attentive, pleasant and natural as are the surroundings. My wife and Mother-in-Law were equally impressed. Altogether an... More

It was our wedding anniversary, and as we were camping we wanted somewhere really nice to eat for a change. This was the only restaurant in Dunvegan which fitted the bill. We dropped by a few days earlier to see if there was a menu available and as we were peering through the door (locked) a nice young lady opened... More

The title says it all. We had to go back the second night to have some of the great meals we saw on night one. Be prepared the restaurant will be packed during high season and reservations are highly advised. The food was great. Everyone loved their meals...most of all the lamb shank I think between the two nights we... More

We had a fantastic meal here while staying near Dunvegan - lovely setting, friendly and very efficient staff and super food. I had the haggis starter, my partner the soup (both delicious) and we both had the pheasant - which was the nicest I've had - cooked to perfection. The restaurant was very busy - so make sure you book... More

We stumbled upon the Old School Restaurant on our travels and were pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious with some great local choices. It's a popular spot, so we had a drink while we waited for a table - which went quicker than expected. Our only mishap was being charged double at the bar - but we let them know... More

We actually went to The Three Chimney's the night after Old School and although the presentation may have been fancier and the ingredients more inventively put together, I thought the food at Old School was still just as delicious. The portion sizes were brilliant, no skimping on the mussels or the pork belly (which I think was the best pork... More
