We stumbled upon this restaurant when we were doing the An Corran and Staffin beach walk, and what a find it was! The restaurant has spectacular views out across the Quiraing and over and above the views it serves really good quality food that represents excellent value for money. When we went in, it was busy with a coach party... More

Staffin is a small village, you don't really have many choices. The decor of the restaurant is very "youthostels style", but the plate is good as well as the dessert and the view to the Quiraing by the windows is beautiful. Then you can't make a mistake with such a reasonable price !

Did not even know this place existed. We found this place after nearly driving past it, glad to say it was really worthwhile stopping. Staff were very helpful and efficient. The food was very good and at reasonable cost. Recommended if travelling in the Staffin area of Skye.

after visiting the spectacular mountains in north skye i sheltered from the wind and rain in this cafe which is open to the public despite being part of a larger building. its very modern but the food is simple hearty fare, very good and excellent value. get a table next to the window for great views.

The food was delicious and the view spectacular not to mention the very reasonable prices. We ordered two of the specials and a small pizza for our 4 year old and despite the fact that there was a whole bus load of young people in the cafe when we arrived we were served quickly and the food was delicious. There... More

Stopped by the Columba 1400 for a light lunch on one of our day trips, gorgeous scenery all round, lovely clean resturant, staff friendly and attentive, good selection of tray bakes, lunches to full meals and all reasonably priced too, lovely wee gift shop too. Worth the trip up for lunch.

This closes early at 8pm, but it serves great square meals in a pleasant room, and it all goes to a good local cause.

We were staying in Staffin for several nights and were recommended to eat at Columba 1400. We ate all our evening meals at this cafe and enjoyed every one. The concept of the cafe is something we wanted to support and all the staff provided a professional and reliable service. The menu was adequate and the quality and quantity of... More

They had good food for a good price. They kind of walk the line of a Christian Establishment, but they don't focus on Jesus Christ.
