“Great food”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

Nice varied menu. Great food and friendly service. Good value for money. There was a power cut on the island during our meal but the staff dealt with it very professionally and it did not spoil our meal.

“Interesting!”
Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

Arrived on a Friday evening ....the starter of seafood paella was fantastic, and most unusual...we were advised that the "sea food platter" would probably include turbot, as well as the mussels, prawns and langoustines.... rather disappointedly had sea trout, no sign of turbot!
A modest bottle of French white, and final bill of £71....
We did notice a party of six foreign visitors asked for a table, and were rebuffed, (the restaurant was half empty) rather than move two tables together! Business must be good...
Would we go back....probably

We have no objection to a negative review as long as it is accurate.

We are glad you liked our seafood Paella as a starter! We don't actually serve this however and I think that what you had was the Frito Marinero, a dish without rice. Thanks for the compliment anyway.

As you comment, I said that the seafood platter, which you each had as a main , would "probably" include Turbot. Unfortunately we had finished that and in its place was a piece of salmon, not sea trout, We don't have any at this time of year and the dish would have been more than the £20 if we did. I did apologise for this and I recall the chef also apologising to you for what she considered her error in not telling me we had run out. You did eat all the Salmon so we assume you enjoyed it.

The wine you had was a bottle of Marques de Riscal rueda verdejo. A Spanish wine not a French. We are a Spanish restaurant and all our wine is from that country. We sell this at £21 per bottle, a very reasonable price considering that many restaurants are selling this at up to £25.

Dessert ? I cant remember but even without coffee you are up to nearly £70. We are not sure, do you think this is expensive? You did have the most expensive items on the menu after all.

We did have two empty tables which we would have loved to give away but please give me credit for knowing the layout of my own restaurant. It would have made the service terrible and inconvenient for my existing customers who always come first. We would love to be able to accommodate all the people who want to eat in our restaurant but it is not always possible.

By the way, we did not appreciate the slamming of the door as you left the restaurant causing the rest of my customers to turn to the noise.

“Lovely Spanish restaurant on Skye”
Reviewed April 13, 2014 via mobile

We had soup of the day which was delicious, as was the meat and cheese selection. Slow cooked lamb was amazing... So tasty and tender. Pheasant & lentils very good too. Owners friendly and welcoming. Would definitely recommend a visit.

“Top notch”
Reviewed March 30, 2014 via mobile

The trifle (it's called something else since this is a Spanish influence restaurant) was basically the best thing I've ever eaten in my entire life and ordered 3. A-maz-ing!!!

The slow roasted lamb was divine.

Highly recommend
