Superb

A first class restaurant that deserves its Michelin star. For breakfast we had a very good choice. For dinner we went into the lounge where we had canapés and the chance to look at the menu and wine list before being taken into the dining room

Had the tasting menu here lots of different flavours and food was extremely well presented. Dining room is not that big and so not a lot of space.

We were amazed to find ourselves the only people in the dining room when we arrived. Our meal was a delight from start to finish,with the cheeses being exceptional, some of the best liverot and eppoisse we have eaten outside France. The service was very good, with our waiter having an extensive knowledge of the food he was serving and... More

We had 4 courses for 70 pounds. Really lovely food, very good value. Lovely service, and some rough edges (in the after dinner at coffee, we had to tell them we wanted the bill, no one came by). Menu is definitely one star Michelin, the service is still learning. But in the wilds of Skye, this was a welcome respite... More

What a wonderful lunch we had. The restaurant is incredible and every bite had an impact. We opted for the three course lunch and I could not commend it any more highly. It was one of the best meals I have ever had. The canopies with a drink before choosing from the menu for the actual lunch were outstanding. We... More

Having been a fan of Claire Macdonald's cooking for many years I was looking forward to sampling Kinloch Loch,albeit with Marcello Tully now in charge. We had dined at the Three Chimneys the previous night so we were wondering how it would compare. Well it came up trumps and although we couldn't face a second consecutive tasting menu the food...

We had two dinners there. The first night the service had a few misses. Second night went smoothly. Although I don't usually care for lamb, it was excellent here. The soup course was also outstanding. Unexpected flavor combinations popped up on occasion and added to my enjoyment. The popcorn ice cream while not bad wasn't great and I love popcorn.

The quality (and quanity) of the food is amazing. You start with canapes which are a meal in themselves! All dinner courses are excellent, but then you retire for coffee and petit fours it should be "grand" fours. So good you have to eat all. Then an excellent breakfast, served by the most pleasant staff. A good walk is then... More

We ate multiple dinners at the restaurant and all of them were outstanding. In fact, this restaurant is in our top five all-time favourites. All the ingredients are local and used very innovatively. It is simply amazing how the flavours of each item is enhanced by the preparation and presentation. They have a great wine list and superb recommendations. The... More
