My wife and I popped in here on a visit to Portree based on the fact that it was very busy compared to its competitors. I had the scallops from the specials board, this dish was fantastic and well worth the £18. My wife had the fish and chips and was very disappointed. The fish was very thin and dry... More

Hake was healthy and flavours all intact, fresh scampi crispy plus fantastic and mussels on both nights as good as I've had plus a treat of chips with the remaining sauce was to die for. Taken as late arrivals and chef happy to accommodate as well as front of house. Finished with sticky toffee and New York cheesecake then left... More

The staff is beyond rude!! I asked for a table for two, and they asked me to wait outside(!) of the restaurant. I said that I wouldn't wait outside because it's cold and I asked for the reason of such a ridiculous request, so they told me that I was blocking the door. I was so shocked with such attitude,...

We walked in and were thrilled to be served right away despite not having a reservation (we started on one end of the street and were shown the door many places due to having no reservation). Many tables after ours were also helped - it sets the tone for a cheery ambience in a cosy place with friendly waitrons. The... More

Probably one of the worst meals I have ever eaten. All dishes were tasteless. We ordered the Hake which was terribly cooked and had no flavour. On top of that, the staff were rude and the service was horrendous. Much better restaurants in Portree!

We had dinner as a family here and the food was okay. Service was a bit sketchy as the restaurant was full and only 2 waiting staff were in attendance. Both were nice and tried to do everything they could to cope but still, some orders were forgotten and our bill was given to the wrong table.

We ate here arriving soon after opening and could not get a table for 6 together. Not a big deal but there probably was a chance to move two tables together. Service was good and staff friendly but the food was fairly average and expensive for the quality. Fish and chips were large portions but unless I'm mistaken the chips... More

We came in for a quick bite and had a wonderful experience eating their fresh seafood. The muscles are a must eat as we had them in a coconut sauce that was exquisite. I chose the vegetarian plate of the day which happened to be exactly the veggie burger I was wanting. This was no premade burger. I could taste... More
