Great facilities, toilets, shop, lounge area, free car park, very large eating area. The food was mediocre, we ordered crispy chicken fillets and were presented with what looked and tasted like BirdsEye frozen chicken fillets, the cod and pancetta fish cakes had hardly any cod in them and were mainly mash potato patties with some very chewy lardons mixed in....

So many mixed reviews, we stopped in to Aros after failing to find somewhere to eat in the village between lunch and dinner on a dreich November afternoon. We were in time for a High Tea special which for not much more than the advertised price for a main course also includes a selection of home baking and tea or... More

Visited on Sunday and had a good sized bacon roll with chips so went back for an evening meal. The lasagne at over £8 was overcooked and burnt but taste was good. The beef and ale pie was ok and the best meal we ordered. However I ordered the chicken breast with whiskey and vegetables and was sadly disappointed. Although... More

we had visited the center earlier in the day and returned for the evening meal - very impressed, food was perfectly prepared, presented and with a very a fair price. Drinks were excellent and the coffee perfect for me. The daytime menu looked a little expensive - but the location views and easy parking make it worthwhile.

I have been going to the Isle of Skye for the last eighteen years and the Aros Centres was definitely one of the places to visit when in Portree. It is a cinema, restaurant/cafe, tourist shop and has a wonderful woodland walk. When I went this year I couldn't believe how it seems to have gone down hill. The restaurant... More

We eat here quite regularly and have never experienced the delays that other reviewers mention. There have been a few problems though: under-cooked lasagna and over cooked burgers. These problems have been quickly fixed by the staff and complimentary drinks supplied. I'll continue coming here and will give more stars after a few more meals if they up their game.

this was a lovely place to have lunch with my parents and 5yr old, comfortable and cosy with the added bonus of having a gift shop attached, staff were lovely in particular Wullie the waiter and Flora from the kitchen, accessible for disabled so no issues for my dad, will definately go again.

Nothing whatsoever about the Sea Eagles in the shops except one post card. I ordered Venison Burger with Red Berries, it arrived and nearly broke my teeth, terrible I got a new burger as a replacement which was exactly the same. This is the worst food I have ever tasted and would not recommend to anyone.

We have just had an evening meal here tonight, picked 2 of the specials off the board. (1) Rump steak, side salad + hand cut chips, (2) Hamburger, side salad + hand cut chips. Big portions and the side salad was very fresh. Both dishes were well presented and hot - the hand cut chips looked amazing and tasted great.... More
