We stopped here for supper as it's located close to the cottage we're renting for the week. We've previously been here for lunch but wanted to try dinner. We both had the soup, which was fantastic, right down to the seasoning. We both had the ratatouille pasta which was acceptable. This may be personal taste but I prefer more of... More

On Fri and Sat evenings, Loch Crostean Coffee Shop becomes a restaurant with a difference!! Very informal atmosphere with a set menu (meat, fish & vegetarian) run as a buffet, this 4-course meal is outstanding. Booking is essential as space is limited. You will need to take your own wine and payment is cash or cheque..no credit card. Set in... More

Visited Loch Croistean again at the end of May having been there last year. Had a lovely, simple meal and enjoyed the two guys who were singing there that evening. Took two friends from Germany with us who were entranced by the place. Will be back as soon as we are up in the Western Isles again. Thanks Marianne......and if... More

Lovely and interesting building (former schoolhouse); briefly met the woman in charge who was friendly, if distracted at the time. The leek and potato soup was really creamy and nice, though the servings could have been a WEE bit larger in my opinion. The lad who was about during our time there was mainly useless, but friendly. Overall an interesting... More

We've just visited Loch Croistean for the 4th year in a row and deliberately went to Uig so that we could have lunch there. The menu is simple, using local ingredients but never disappoints. If you're visiting Lewis it's definitely worth a trip.

Gem of a place on road to Uig. Delicious food, fabulous baking and a welcoming atmosphere. The lady who runs the place seems to have boundless energy and is very hospitable.

Restaurant is in an old school and owned by a lovely lady who cooks to order. The menu is limited enabling the owner to concentrate her efforts to producing good home cooked food. Booking is advisable as the restaurant is small and cosy.

We love this place and its idiosyncratic solution to service. Diners are welcomed into what was the main schoolroom and seated at an eclectic selection of tables and chairs. The chalkboard menus list what is on the menu that night, usually a selection of three dishes to suit all tastes. Starters are delivered to the tables and then the main... More
