Initially went on a lunchtime, then booked an evening meal as the food was so good. Waiter and chef were both excellent on both occasions. Advise to book as it can be busy due to the reputation. There are daily specials which we tried which were phenomenal. Customers can relax in a comfortable lounge area after the meal which we... More

Well we were sad to not see the chef who ran this in 2002 when it was the rendez-vous. It was our favourite restaurant on Skye then but we were not disappointed. It has changed its name and has new owners and a new menu but the food is top notch. We had halibut mains one night which were our... More

Nice welcome. Much higher quality than the road signs and decor would make you think. Lovely quick fresh scallops and interesting local fish soup -cuillan skink.

Found the Red Skye after a day of driving around the lochs. It was a welcome sight and was the first restaurant we came across that was open in mid-afternoon. I had the ale battered haddock and chips. The fish was great, well-cooked. The chips were excellent, the best I'd found in the north of Scotland. And, the host was... More

The food was good here but the decor, lighting and atmosphere was pretty Spartan. Vibe and service is definitely casual, but the dishes were well done. Seemed to take forever to get to the table even though the place was pretty empty but it was a Sunday so perhaps staff was short. I think I'd look around a bit harder... More

We only stopped off at this restaurant on a drive to portree when the weather got really bad. It was the best thing we ever did. I had the venison burger and my friend had the skye ale battered haddock and chips. It was probably one of the best meals I've ever had.

This is our 4th year at this restaurant and the first since Leslie and John moved on. They'd be pleased to see that the place has maintained the same friendly ambiance and that the quality of the food is has been maintained, with many new and exceptional dishes. This has to be one of my favourite restaurants on the island... More

We had no reservation and they still managed us without a wait. Reccommend reservation, as this place is justifiably popular. excellent menu and the server worked with us to tailor a meal to my wife's small appetite. If you decide to have Sticky Toffee Pudding anywhere in the UK, this is the place.

Menu was a little limited in selections but the food we ordered was excellent. Maybe a little pricier than we were expecting but would recommend visiting given the quality of the food on offer. We had not booked and this was a spur of the moment decision to stop in and it appeared we were lucky to get in. Recommend... More
