The food in the Chandlery Restaurant is created by John Kelly, award winning chef, created using the freshest of local produce from the Isle of Skye. The style of cooking here is Scottish with a French Twist and will delight any palette. Locally caught seafood, fresh game and meats, organic Skye berries and vegetables form the basis for memorable dishes for you to enjoy.

No table linens, placemats, flowers. Paper napkins with a 90 # meal!!? Come on, really...four star? Give me a break!! Even... read more

We ate here on a Wednesday night out in portree. We didn't book but got a table within 20 minutes. Service was good and friendly, food fantastic. My husband had the seafood platter and my son and me had the salmon. All perfectly prepared and presented well. A lovely and enjoyable evening. Definitely worth a visit.

Went for seafood only to find the selection of seafood very limited which was a surprise. Ended up getting steak and duck both asked for medium rare and both came very very over cooked.

Went to the reception on 3rd June to book a table at the Chandlery for the 4th. to be told that it was now closed as the new owners of the hotel to which it is attached did not feel they wanted it as part of their business plan. This is unfortunate as this was THE place to eat when... More

So many great restaurants in Portree but the fish here has to take the top prize - a little pricey but well worth it, freshly cooked with fresh vibrant ingredients. A Must visit, but worth booking ahead.

We were staying in a holiday apartment rental (check out that review too) but wanted a nice dinner out. The Bosville's menu came highly recommended, and it was just a short walk away (most everything in Portree is just a short walk away!) so off we went. DELICIOUS. Husband had the fish & chips, just as good as others have... More

The filet of Haddock is fabulous here. The chips are fresh and not greasy, the fish is delicately breaded, and the mushy peas are the best I have ever had in Scotland! The value of the meal is a also good. We ate in the bar, which is cosy and friendly.

We arrived at around 7pm on a Thursday evening and were greeted warmly at reception. We were told that as we didn't have a reservation we would need to add our names to a waiting list and take a seat at the bar where we could wait until our names were called. We presumed that this was because they were... More
