We enjoyed our meal so much on our first night that we went back again. It isn't pretentious in any way but is nicely designed and furnished. There is plenty of choice on the menu and the chef is good at his job. The customer...More

Such a nice and romantic place for celebrating birthday, despite of the bad weather. Thanks Red Sky, and special thanks to Ms MJ Jai for your arrangement!

Didn't start off well, as I had emailed the restaurant to book a table. When we didn't get a reply, we called in to see them. Their problem is a very unreliable broadband service, which also explains why they only take cash - the card...More

We were told that reservations were necessary, but our B&B hosts made one for us. We waited in a separate and very comfortable lounge until our tables were ready. The restaurant had charm as well as good food.

We had dinner here twice (first was so good we had to go back). The food was delicious with some unique dishes. The menu changes regularly, specials board had daily treats! The service was excellent. Highly recommend, might be worth booking, can get busy.

Chose this place from good reviews on TA. Not a bad choice, but perhaps not as good as expected. The food was fine and the service good.

How is it misleading? My statement was £7.50 for a bowl of soup. Was the price £7.50....yes was it a bowl of soup......yes! Your food was average but then I am from Glasgow so competition is fierce therefore standards are high! You also have avoided my point about it being an opinion why are you asking to change an opinion it isn't fact?

Management of this establishment clearly do not understand how Trip Advisor works. People review with their own opinion and management respond telling you to change your review. Why? It isn't fact which I am stating, it is my own opinion. You can only argue with fact. So therefore to ask me to change my review would be to change my opinion. Sorry Red Skye Management that can't happen. It's this kind of behaviour that won't see the place last! Look forward to hearing the managements reply to my question.

I have been asked to respond to a statement by a trip advisor member called Luke E. I am not sure why but I will say I disagree with him. I think his comments about the restaurant not understanding how trip advisor works is... More
I would like to know why the management chose to lie in their response to my genuine review. They claim we were offered a free drink when we complained about our meal, which is entirely untrue. They also claim our bill was reduced to £12 for the course I complained about, and if this is true then we were never told. If we had been told, I would've accepted both of these as fair gestures and not left my review in the first place. I am doubly disappointed by the incredibly rude response received. I will certainly be suggesting friends and family in the area avoid this place in the future. And thanks for the suggestion - the chip shop will be a vast improvement on what we experienced earlier this month: I hear the management are most polite and the vegetarian selection is much better.

We must have caught them on a "bad night" too then .....The reason we chose this restaurant was based on the positive reviews. It was like we were at a different restaurant!
