Fish just melts in your mouth!

Lovely fish that melts in your mouth - chips a little greasy but still nice. Enjoyable to sit on the quay and eat them; the view is lovely. Worth a visit.

For a takeaway chippy, you can't expect Michelin star quality food, but this was great and fairly priced! It was lovely eating its. The beach in the sun!

Didn't mind queuing as it is on the harbour and the view was awe inspiring, has to be one of the best chips shops in Scotland and views that you can not believe you are witnessing, fab food and service, what more can you say, loved the suppers here.

We drove to Portree from Dunvegan after the takeaway there seemed to shut quite early, we were not disappointed. Best fish supper I have had in a long time.

This seemed like a must-do in Portree, so we did it. The fish was very good, and the chips were well-cooked. But they were out of onion rings and my burger was dry and disgusting. We watched them pull the patty out of the freezer and put it straight in the oil - unfortunately too late to do anything. It... More

The worst bag of chips in a beautiful location. Looks like a lovely place and really should've better in a seaside location. We were very disappointed however I am unsure if there is a choice. Oy bother if you are desperate for hard chips retried several times.
