The food was well prepared and the ingredients of excellent quality, but I would have gladly traded some of the quantity (of which there was rather a lot) with some more flavours (which were lacking). A bit uninspiring.

We recently visited Stornoway with friends and were lucky enough to find this little gem - it was so good we went to the restaurant 2 days in a row! (in a 2 day trip!)
The decor is fresh and modern with ample table space, the service is good and the staff are very accommodating! We arrived as a group of 10 without a reservation and the staff were welcoming and did everything they could to allow us to sit together and all the food arrived at the same time.
The selection on the menu is fantastic - good local fayre and excellently presented! I can highly recommend the black pudding stack and the salmon scone - see the pictures for yourself! The food was all cooked fresh and was obviously homemade.
Can not recommend it enough!
Please open a seperate trip advisor for the restaurant to let more people know it's there! We struggled to find good food elsewhere in Stornoway and had it been under the restaurants part of Trip Advisor (no doubt with the best reviews) we wouldn't have had the misfortune of eating elsewhere!

We'll be back!!

Great tasting and well presented food offering very good value. The home made rubarb tart was delicious. Would highly recommend this cafe for either a formal or casual visit.

the restaurant in these premises is now called cafe @ 30 and is absolutely brilliant food and so convenient for locals and visitors alike and is open from 9am for breakfast - full or rolls until 11am and from 11am - 3.30 for light lunches and then onwards to 6pm for high teas and then till 7pm for dinners. All i found to be extremely well priced. Definately local food and so fresh - even chips hand made - been three times since it opened around 13 May 2013 as a new venture. Great to have somewhere where you are not tied by traditional times for meals.
Would definately recommend.

We had a really nice room with a great bathroom. We booked this place because of the food reviews, and we weren't disappointed. Dinner was very good and really reasonably priced, the salmon with pea and ham risotto was amazing.
