Lucked up while staying in Portree while on Skye tour. They were fully booked but did put us upstairs in the bar area (no windows & no ambiance at all) but worth it. Food was great. Service was ok, but they were having to run up & down the stairs, so they did the best they could. Give it a... More

Food was good, staff were positive and easy to chat to! Had 3 deserts and enjoyed everyone of them, spaced out of course! Will go back there again soon!

On an Island Hopping holiday our first meal on Skye was a disaster. What the "chef???" did to the lamb should be reported to the RSPCA.. So we went looking for something better for dinner the second night. What we found was this unpretentious restaurant in a harbour-side hotel in Portree. We were lucky as we were shown to a... More

Stayed in Skye overnight on the way to Harris and found this restaurant with excellent fresh sea food. I had the hake (catch of the day) excellent. Really good service and pleasant ambience.

This bustling restaurant is friendly, noisy and has one of the best views in the world. There are just a few window seats, and I suggest you wait until one of them is available, as the view is worth the wait. A varied wine list is on offer to complement the menu which understandably has a focus on fish and... More

Given how busy Portree can be in the summer perhaps I should have bought a lottery ticket... walked into the Rosedale on spec on a busy Friday evening, got a table for two by a window overlooking the harbour straight away. I had langoustines and my girlfriend had the mussels - both dishes were beautifully prepared and the fancy 'magic'... More

We had dinner at the Rosedale as we were staying there - booked by our tour company, and the roast lamb was the worst we'd ever had. It was not tender succulent slicers but served as a slab that was charred on outside and inedible. We complained to the waitress and had absolutely no response. It was also very expensive... More

Wandering round the harbour in Portree my wife and I were attracted by the menu boards outside the hotel and decided on the spur of the moment to try and eat there. In common with most restaurants in Portree, the Rosedale was very busy, however the staff kindly offered us a slot in 30 minutes time, and suggested we wait... More
