I was two times in this restaurant. First time because we stay in the hotel of the restaurant, second time because all other restaurants were fully booked. The meal was quite good but the sevice was not really friendly and really overwhelmed. I regret that I not looked for another restaurant early enough to not to go a second time... More

My husband and I went to this restaurant and both had the same main course. His was piping hot and mine was at best luke warm. The meat in his pie was OK but mine was fatty. Service was good and so was the layout. Gave this and Average rating as it did not merit a "Very Good" and there... More

As a party of three we had a meal here. I had venison steak, when it arrived it didn't look freshly cooked, was dry and resembled shoe leather. The veg was tasteless, potatoes under cooked and very few. My mother had game pie which was supposed to come with baby potatoes but had left over new potatoes which had been... More

The food was below average, there was no atmosphere and the service was lacking. Nice views, price was fairly standard but disappointing overall.

Nice place to eat looking out over the harbour. Food very tasty and well presented. The menu had fewer choices than it would have done in high season but there was still a good variety.

The food and service were quite good and ok value for the money. My salad was a bit over run with dressing but I enjoyed the burger. The fish my daughter and partner had was delicious and very fresh. Too many chips/fries, but that seems to be the norm wherever we go (not common back home in Oz).

Food was nice, as good as other pubs visited in the highlands. Pretty typical menu, definitely won't go hungry. A couple of local beers worth a try, particularly the pinnacles but you can probably get that at other places around Skye.

Poor food and average price. This is a place were people go to when all the popular places are booked. Not very good at all.

We went there on a Tuesday night but were told it's full so we made a reservation on Wednesday. The mussels was delicious, nicely cooked and served, the other dishes were ok. Good environment and if you get a window seat you can have a view of the Portree Bay.

We visited the restaurant on a Monday night, when some of the other restaurants in town were closed, so it may have been busier than usual. Still, we waited a ridiculously long time for our meal, without any communication from the wait staff. While we did appreciate them making minor accommodations for us with a dish, and the food was...
