The food is good and a varied menu to suit all. We always enjoy our trip to Aros which we visit most weeks. The staff are friendly and we always enjoy our meal. It is very poplar with the locals which says it all.

The sign outside proclaims - 'Good food served all day' - well I would downgrade that to 'Pretty average food served all day'. I had one of the 'specials' - a venison burger which was not special in any way - unless you like your burgers dried up and tastless. The chips were the one decent things on the plate.... More

Been several times and usually rate 3 but meals with hairs on plate and the lack of concern from staff made experience poor.

Very convenient to stop, nice view, got what I wanted, placing the order a bit chaotic though. I have been to this place on quite a few occasions and be back despite 3 stars given by me. You cannot be too demanding on the Inner or Outer Hebrides.

Have eaten here quite a few times for lunch, and is generally quite good. Prices are fair, and the views are great.

Any regular visitor to Portree will know how limited simple and non-pub based eating is. This place knows that folks have little choice and offers a 'take it or leave it' attitude to customers. Come on Portree, someone can do better than this. My business is going elsewhere after my atrocious experience today.

Earlier reviewer is correct in saying that this place has gone downhill dramatically from when it first opened. The food is exactly the same as then too, no changes to menu's - come on Aros, move with the times! The shop is dated too and needs a complete overhaul with fresh eyes and ideas. The very worst thing about the... More

Second visit was for a cup of coffee and a cake and again good food. Toilet facilities very good and very clean. Locals and tourists use the cafe facilities. There... More

We stopped off here for lunch and yet again we were not disappointed by the food or service. It is a fantastic place for a meal.
