    Service was exemplary, food was excellent. We were sat in the conservatory in the prime position looking out onto the estuary. We weren't hotel guests so we weren't expecting that. Couldn't fault the whole experience. By the way, don't be put off by the look of the outside the inside is lovely.

    Not suitable for vegetarians. Despite the attractive menu online, the provision for vegetarians was very poor. The choice was between a stoggy risotto or a cold salad. They were unable to offer any alternatives and gave the impression of not being interested. We ended up eating an item from the starter menu - which, again was only one choice or soup. Our pre-dinner drinks took a long time and then they tried to serve them twice. Our wine arrived when we had nearly finished eating. The staff were delightfully pleasant, accomplished at apologising nicely and a credit to their training. We had planned on booking a holiday at the Skeabost next year, and so we are glad that we checked it out first.

    Lovely Easter Sunday lunch. The conservatory restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and presents well. The staff were cheerful, very helpful, polite and were eager we had a good time. There was a limited menu but the food was very well prepared, every course was tasty and well presented. Not rushed. Relaxed. Would recommend.

    Great restaurant. We had 2 adults and 2 children (ages 8 and 10). They had a kids menu and menu for adults to keep everyone happy. There soup of the day, sweet potato and cumin was fantastic. The Black Forest cheesecake was delivered excellent.

    Shocking. No Sunday lunch available, really poor menu, staff were strange and it was very quiet. The old couple next to us eat for free because it was so bad and they complained.

    What a hidden gem! We booked this last minute and our experience exceeded our expectations. We had 2 children with us (8 and 9) and we hadn't anticipated dining at such a nice restaurant. Our entire family was treated superbly and the food was excellent. I enjoyed reading about the history of the location and the sitting rooms are lovely.

    Went for date night with my wife, we were greated with a friendly smile from reception and taken to the snug room with a fire and shown a drinks menu. Drinks order and brought to us, we were offer menu to browse while we were sitting. Order was taken and the lovely staff member said she would show us to the table about 5 minutes before food was ready. Food was amazing! Very relaxing atmospher and courteous staff, nothing with a bother. Would definitely recommed.

    We were limited for time so only had a main course. We choose the salmon dish and were not disappointed. Cooked to perfection, so full of flavours and beautifully presented. The staff were all so approachable and efficient. We left saying "we must return" soon.

    It's been a couple of weeks since our visit here, and I just asked my husband what he remembers. We both remember this: the setting is gorgeous - in a "glass enclosure" on a loch. The service was quite good. The scotch, beer and wine list very nice. The food was ok, but not particularly memorable. And the young lady who stood outside (brrr) in a light drizzle playing the bagpipes was a pleasing addition to our evening. We would probably go back just for the experience of dining in that beautiful atmosphere again. it's a short drive from Portree, and (much to our relief) has plenty of parking.

    I think we may have been the very first to have confirmed a table via Open Table here. We all were very happy with our meals, the location and the service. The interior is a very modern feel with elegant LED lighting throughout. We arrived an a dark and rainy night, Google maps brought us down the road a bit to a lovely home with very friendly folks who pointed us in the correct direction. When you turn off the main road you are essentially at the beginning of their driveway, look for the posts on either side of their entrance, don’t head down the road to the residential. I would eat here again without hesitation, the Salmon was excellent.
