Meeting the family after so long was amazing.The Waverley stepped up to open for a reunion dinner. The lamb dinners were amazing, the Chicken succulent but the Pasta with roasted Med, veg was poor and the sauce thin and tasteless. Sorry. BUT the service was great, the staff lovely and the atmosphere wonderful, x

My husband and I recently came to Kyle for vacation, and were recommended to the Waverly for a great dinner. They did not disappoint! We enjoyed every bite, and the waitress even taught me how to eat a food I was unfamiliar with. I would highly recommend it!

This upstairs restaurant is relatively small and rather quirky. These features are real advantages. Menu had some delicious local meat dishes. The able cook came round to chat to the evening diners. The whole atmosphere was friendly and informative. Service was excellent and very attentive. The evening surpassed our expectations. If you're in, or near, Kyle of Lochalsh, The Waverley... More

The staff were very pleasant. However, our food was poorly presented and generally over cooked. Simple errors gave an impression of tired from start to finish. I am sorry to say.

Was recommended this restaurant by our B&B. Location not obvious - up a stair above shops, in a large homely room. We had pre-7pm specials - very reasonably priced. Complimentary warm bread was lovely, as was Haggis, with gravy (seemed odd) but was delicious. Quite a find, as there seems few decent places to eat in Kyle if you didn't... More

Was recommended and we went both nights of our stay at Isle of Skye. A querky little resturant with very tasty food. Nice little touches and wonderful bread. Everything came to the table piping hot and well presented.

The Waverley accommodated us at an awkward time when they were almost finished cooking and serving! This was very good of them. The room was homely, welcoming and comfortable. We were brought a wee dish of cherry tomatoes and olives, followed by focaccia made with sun-dried tomatoes. The bread was so moist and tasted gorgeous! We shared the fresh, steamed... More

The quality of the food was beautiful with lots of nice touches (little complimentary starter and warm bread), nice waitress serving us. The only let down was when we asked for chips instead of potatoes, and the chef (perhaps the owner) shouted at the waitress saying there is no deep fryer in the kitchen. That point we were thinking of... More
