“Great food, great service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2011

A warm greeting set the scene for an excellent evening. The staff were accommodating and attentive. The food was well cooked and tasty, the highlight being the fish pie with the addition of a langoustine to make up for the fact that limited supply meant they were not officially on the menu.

“Dreadful food the worst in Europe”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2010

I am an award winning chef, I like good food well cooked, simple fish well cooked or a nicely baked scone...not fancy, not clever, just good food. I appreciate good service, a smile, information on the menu... not much. NONE of this is available at this Dreadful place where the locals shun the restuarant.
Scrambled eggs (Soft Scrambled Eggs) rolled round the plate like dry granules of polystyrene, the soft boiled egg was so small that its top was below the rim of the eggcup and it was hard boiled anyway, the Continental breakfast left for us on the morning of departure was two wet slices of white store bread, 1 teabag and hot water in a flask, 1 tiny bottle of britvic orange (the small mixer size) and that was FOR TWO PEOPLE!!! These people have not even bothered to apologise.

“Best in the Uists”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2009

After a weekend of rain and mediocre food this place was a welcome change.
We had lunch in the bar. Nice, modern decor, but still warm.
We ordered fish pate platters (I don't remember the exact names of them). It was really tasty, all made locally from what we could tell. The portions were a little small so we had sticky toffee puddings for dessert.
It wont be cheap, but next time we're down we'll splurge for dinner.
