Not only was the food great at Rockvilla Restaurant (the menu offered a small, but great and diverse selection of food), owner and cook Wendy was a delight as well. Her views on food are inspiring. And she was probably the nicest person we met on our trip (which says something with all the great folks!), which made this night... More

We booked the Rockvilla - 8 of us, from the 19th - 26th of July 2014. It was excellent. The Villa is fantastic for a family holiday or a group of friends just wanting to meet up and have a wonderful time. The bedrooms are big and spotlessly clean and the bathrooms are modern and we had lovely fluffy towels.... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and ate at the restaurant on two night. Lovely, friendly, relaxed atmosphere in this small restaurant. Good vegetarian choices for me and my husband really enjoyed his thai curry. The salad to start was delicious too.

The Rockvilla is a nice enough place. The staff - a mother & son team - are friendly & welcoming and the atmosphere convivial. But the food, alas, is pretty average. The Cuillin Skink - a traditional creamy soup with smoked haddock & potatoes - to start was pretty good but after that it was a bit of a let... More

Delicious food, especially the Cullen Skink and the warm mackarel salad. The food is very fresh, colorful and good-smelling, always presented with great care: pleasing to the eye, the nose and the mouth! Desserts are also great. The service is excellent, warm and friendly atmosphere, beautiful location. Very clean and tidy, cozy and relaxing. Made me love Scottish cooking!

Rope grown mussels were delicious. Veg lasagne was very tasty and the beef linguine was superb. Host was great, cozy atmosphere and stunning setting on the loch.
