My husband and I had dinner here on our wedding anniversary while we were on holiday. We had 3 courses all of which were cooked to perfection. Although this restaurant is known for its seafood, my husband, who won't eat anything from the sea, was impressed with the menu. We would definitely return if back on the isle of lewis.... More

For a restaurant supposed to be heavy on the fish, they serve lot of meat. The fish does not shine through, and accompanying sauces very under inspiring. Having booked well in advance for 7.30, I was not happy to have to wait until approximately 8.30 to be given a menu. In summary pricey and not up to scratch.

We had a delicious lunch at Digby Chick - We only had one course, but it was perfect in every way - the scallops were cooked to perfection. The seafood platter was also extremely good. The restaurant has a modern feel to it - with Sam Macdonald fish sculptures on the walls - good experience all round!

Fish was perfectly cooked, as good as any superior Parisian restaurant. Fresh, well seasoned & not mucked about with which is just the way we like our fish. Great ingredients should be left to sing for themselves. Thank you & well done. Also has superb sculpture by Sam Macdonald

We were in Stornaway for the morning and Digby Chick was recommended to us as THE place to have lunch ... and it absolutely was! We couldn't fault anything - the food was first class as was the service and the ambiance. We can definitely recommend Digby Chick without hesitation.

Just wonderful. From front of house to waitresses the staff are cheery, knowledgeable and fun. The food is simply wonderful, the menu is enough to get one sleeting with excitement - as a main course the Minch Cod was just perfect. I have been before and was not disappointed. Booking is the key here to avoid disappointment!

The previous reviews say it all, what a great restaurant in centre of Stornoway. Handy parking. Early evening menu best value. City quality in the Hebrides, good menu choices something for everyone. Booked before we arrived but our holiday host also recommended it so local favourite too.

My last visit here was as part of a group for a birthday and they could not have been more accommodating. Friendly, helpful, knowledgeable staff who were always on but not intrusive. I occasionally go for lunch too and would highly recommend the tasting platter.

What a great find. Wonderful! This place would be a destination for Masterchef finalists trying their hand in a professional kitchen if it was within the M25. Fortunately, it’s in Stornoway on Lewis and we were free of pretence – just great food and really friendly service. Excellent, excellent, excellent.

We had 2 meals here. The first time we were so impressed we had to go back the following evening! The monkfish fish finger style starter was delicious, one of our party chose it twice. We had turbot one evening and hake the next, both cooked beautifully and with a bit of a twist. Another chose lamb and then a... More
