Description: Scorrybreac restaurant is set in a beautiful location and is the perfect spot to enjoy wonderful Scottish cuisine served with a French twist. Our aim is to source the best produce that Skye has to offer. We will be serving dinner 6 days a week from Tuesday to Sunday in our small and elegant dining room. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Venue - the restaurant is tiny, only 18 seats. They seem to do at least 2 sittings per table - which I imagine you have to in order to make a profit with such a small place. As such if you arrive early you will be left in the small vestibule until your table is ready as there is simply not room inside to wait.

Menu - it is a set menu, 3 courses with 3 choices for each. Given the small number of tables this is logical. If you are fussy about things it might be best to go elsewhere. There is a sample menu on the website to give you an idea what may be served.

Food - we though the food was excellent, great flavours and well cooked and presented. There have been comments about the portion size - I thought the were fine for a 3 course meal.

Service - Good if a bit automatic. When we ate there were two other couples who arrived about the same time and we were all next to each other - so we heard the same word perfect statements on presentation and removal of each course 3 times. The food came at a reasonable pace - we did not feel rushed.

Cost - it is not cheap, 48 pounds each plus drinks. However I didn’t think it was unreasonable for the quality.

Parking - Some one mentioned the lack of parking - it is a tiny restaurant in the middle of a small village so you cannot expect parking by the door. There is free public parking 5 to 10 minutes walk away, or a taxi from any of the local B&Bs should be less than 5 pounds.

We hadn’t a wonderful dinner in this tiny and charming spot. Service was excellent and our food was delicious and attractive. I thought the pricing was reasonable for the excellent meal.

We tried many of the best restaurants and this was our favorite. We wanted to let each bite linger on our taste buds. The service was gentle and the restaurant cozy with a limited number of tables. A little pricey but worth it if you can do it. Requires reservations.

Probably the best restaurant I tried in Scotland. Very good quality ingredients, care in the preparation and interesting flavour combination.
Not cheap, but not pricey either.
Absolutely recommended.
