Went to aros for some lunch with a friend like we do every week and found a hair in my food. I sent it back and they took out another panini. Half way through eating it I found another hair. The worst part was I didn't even get an apology and got made to pay for it. I find it... More

This was a great wee place to stop for a late dinner. The staff are friendly and accommodating. Food is hot and tasty. The real chips are worth extra rather than frozen chips. I had fish and chips and the soup is tasty. A busy wee place as it seemed the locals use it well. It had a gift shop... More

Just on the outskirts of Portree on the Isle of Skye Aros has a restaurant with fabulous views, a shop, theatre/cinema, meeting rooms, etc. The food is of a good quality and popular with locals. The staff are very pleasant and friendly. Aros is a place you will want to go back to.

Gift shop, really good cafe, take away cakes, exhibition space, there's lots to love. It's often our first stop to hang and chill when we first arrive on the Isle of Skye on our regular visits. Love it.

Been stopping here regularly for years - normally returning from Western Isles. Never been disappointed. It is not haute cuisine and doesn't pretend to be. If you are after a normal home-style meal, plenty on your plate and not going to burst the bank - then this ticks the boxes. Have always found the staff more than pleasant and friendly.... More

Had an evening meal there prior to the cinema. Service poor and food still frozen on arrival. Told the waitress who simply said she would pass the comments on to the chef! Won't be returning.

Went one evening, very quiet, probably due to the heavy snow falling. Good choice for an evening meal, which is a reduced menu from the daytime menu. Would recommend the macaroni cheese, which along with drinks and steak pie was £25. Good shop with wide variety of gifts. All staff pleasant and friendly

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....
