    Food was lovely, we were booked for 7pm and at 8.05pm we had finished our meal but were still drinking our bottle of wine. A waitress came and asked us to finish up as they needed the table for 8.15pm. We were going to have liqueurs but we we're not offered to take our drinks to the bar. On hindsight I feel we were quite rushed throughout the whole meal. On checking our booking we were meant to have our tabke until 8.30pm. We had waited a few weeks for a table but I don't think we will be rushing back.

    Special meal...in an out in an hour...so fast getting the food out...haggis starter is prepared like a tray bake in advance and so obviously kept warm for a long period.. middle lovely but outside overcooked....scallops terrific...daube beef nice but a bit dry...steak pie great...waiter was good...a lot of youngsters still learning their trade but love to see them getting the chance and they will only improve..Stravaig obviously still in its infancy but really hope to see marked improvement next time.

    Our food was delicious. Decor lovely, staff very nice. Drinks were slow as bar was busy. Didn’t like that we were asked to vacate our table after 1 hour 20 mins as next diners had arrived, obviously early. Didn’t get offered coffee, as table was wanted. We were asked to take our wine which we were still drinking through to the bar to finish. We paid bill and left within less than 1 hour30 mins of our booking time. Too quick. Whilst lovely food, too rushed and seems to be focus on turning over as many diners as possible.

    We loved our lunch @ Stravaig. We were treated very well by all staff & the kitchen delivered tasty & well thought out food. They took cognisance of a lactose free diet & made sure I had nothing to worry about - not always the case in restaurants in this area. Super! Now if I could just make some minor points please. Portion size - us in the more mature (loath to say old) generation cannot eat such big portions. We’re not mean with money, but find stacked plates a bit off putting. If there was an option for, say half portions, that would be excellent. Found wines - except for house wines - were a wee bit expensive. Other than these points we’d like to say a big thank you to Gavin & Jamie for their impeccable service.

    Booked last minute and didn't realise that it was the lunch menu and not dinner. Initially we were very disappointed that we couldn't order from dinner menu. My husband ordered Cullen skink. He has eaten it all over Scotland for many years. He said it was the best he had ever tasted. For mains I ordered mac and cheese and hubby burger, we don't tend to order these things when out for dinner but they were both delicious. Hubby isn't a big burger fan but he scoffed it. The service was polite and effortless and general feeling very positive. This was our first time eating here and we will be returning for that dinner menu that is for sure! Best restaurant we have eaten at for a couple of years. Thank you to all your staff.

    On our first visit to the new Stravaig we had a nice time during our visit, the only two things that we picked up on during our visit was probably down to staff training where a finger bowl of water was not provided for one of the Mussels starters and we were not asked to try the wine once opened other than that the staff very very friendly and courteous and overall we enjoyed our visit.
