    A lovely old inn but food was really disappointing. The quality was very poor. The roast beef was inedible. The veg poorly cooked. The mussels were very nice in the creamy sauce but the bread served was just a sliced baguette not the ‘crusty bread’ described and expected. The venison pie was very nice but the veg nothing special. Overall the inn is very pricey for not very good food. We are happy to pay a higher price for quality, home cooked food. VERY disappointing. The staff did give us a discount for the inedible roast beef which was good. The Stein Inn wasn’t for us but may be for you. Thank you.

    Run out of the most appealing items on the menu by 7.10pm using the weather as an excuse when as non locals we had traversed the island for two days in the rain. Lazy and inept management, poor communication and utterly disappointing. Fly to Inverness, drive to the Isle of Skye and then one hour round trip on the island to get to the venue and you don’t have food? We had a reservation! Anyone with a microcosm of hospitality training and intelligence would have called us (phone number clearly in the booking) and said if they were running out of food. I think more likely complete laziness and incompetence in the kitchen. All the effort to get there for a bowl of chips and a microwave sticky toffee pudding. Completely wretched. Shame on you.

    The menu was let down by the lack of availability of what must have been all the favourites The soup starter had been heated up in a volcano but had somehow maintained an amazing taste. The goats cheese Bon Bon was an absolute taste sensation and although there was only on Bon Bon it was presented beautifully. After some disappointment with the selection and availability for the main courses, venison mince and potatoes and langoustine and chips was presented. Both mains were excellent. Sticky toffee pudding is a must to finish off the meal. The new management are working hard to get everything right and will have the Inn running brilliantly very soon.

    Amazing food. Lovely evening. Staff were very accommodating. Old, rustic but a lovely atmosphere. Staff very friendly and helpful and happy to work with fussy kids. £ for £ in Skye currency it's pretty good value! Location is out of this world especially if you're lucky enough to get a beautiful sunset! Thank you for a lovely evening, will definately be back on our next trip. Definately worth a visit!

    This restaurant is a great place to enjoy a rustic atmosphere accompanied by a gifted chef and manager. Friendly and accommodating staff eager to assist as needed. Salads and small plates were excellent although the large crab was a bit overcooked. Met two couples from England and enjoyed interesting conversations while sipping nice white wines offered at most reasonable prices.

    Dreadful. Gone downhill. Waited 1.5 hours to receive food then it was covered in the allergen I am allergic too. ( they were told at time of booking and again on placing order) Then had to wait for food to be remade . It returned with just a piece of fish and a few hard potatoes. No vegetables or any apology. Charged full amount and they added service! Gone downhill. Last year it was a completely different experience. Won’t be returning.

    Charming restaurant in a lovely setting. However, we waited over an hour to receive our food (1:15 reservation). 4 other tables in our room arrived after us, received their food well before us. Ok, we weren't in a hurry. Husband's venison burger was good, my crab was awful. Only 1 leg had ANY meat in it. I picked away to get a few bites out of the claws. Over $40 USD. And never received the included chips (fries) or salad. I mentioned this to our waiter, who seemed indifferent. I did not ask for any refund, not my style, plus I should have asked about the chips earlier, but forgot, since was so busy trying to find any crab to eat! ALso, this is the 1st time I have ever posted a negative restaurant review.

    It was difficult to choose from the wonderful selection that the Isle of Skye offers in terms of the burgeoning local food culture and a refreshing, no-nonsense personality. The choices were endless, but after long and hard research I finally booked a table with two friends at the Stein Inn and I could not have made a better choice. The food quality, portion sizes, and manner of service were top-class. It was a truly outstanding experience and one that I would recommend to any visitors in the area. FIVE STARS!
