    Wonderful property. Cod was well cooked, but a bit too much butter sauce. Prawns were tiny and didn't add much. Everything comes in an enormous bowl which is awkward to eat out of if you are trying to cut things and kind of takes away from the presentation. Ambiance is lacking, it's very quiet, people talking in hushed whispers, felt a bit like a library. Service was ok.

    After experiencing the horror of trying to get a reservation in Portree, this establishment was a breath of fresh air! Beautiful scenery , spacious and well appointed dining room set the stage for a wonderful evening. First of all , if you get the opportunity to have Nicola as your waitress, you will experience a charming and fun conversation that will delight you. The food is delicious and reasonably priced.The duck appetizer, ribeye steak and lamb dish were delectable and the chocolate crème brûlée was totally sinful. Our experience was well worth the taxi ride to be treated with respect as opposed to the insanity of the Portree restaurant industry!

    We had a delicious meal at the West Pier Restaurant. We had a table looking out onto the lake, there was a lovely ambience, the serving staff were very attentive and accommodating. The hotel is very decorative and beautiful to eat in. We were served our drinks and food promptly and everything was perfect. I’ve already recommended the West Pier to visitors in the book of comments at the cottage where we stayed. Thank you for a delicious meal in beautiful surroundings with excellent staff.

    Despite highlighting the conservatory eating which is marketed in their photos, there is no option to explicitly have this eating experience and if not staying with them or another connection, you may be relegated to a separate side room with a much less desirable ambiance. The meal was fine and service was fine, but our group and the table next to us felt like there was a bait and switch and did not satisfy the high end dining experience advertised. Would recommend if guaranteed the outdoor / conservatory experience but otherwise would caution highly!

    The service was lovely. Everyone was kind and helpful. The ambiance was absolutely beautiful. The food was decent. We expected so much with the prices! The portions we tiny! My husbands lamb was 2 tiny medallions of lamb £38!!! What a disappointment! There were enough vegetables with each entree but we didn’t pay the high price for those. Beautiful surroundings but disappointing food.

    If you are looking for an upscale fine dining experience, this is the place. We wanted to have one very nice dinner during our trip to Skye, so we chose this place. We were not disappointed. The servers were attentive, the place was beautiful, location was convenient, and most importantly, the food was very good. We loved having a view of the lake from our table. We had the crab on crostini with chili lime salsa for starters. Very fresh and perfect start to our meal. Our mains were Lemon Sole and Salmon. Both were deliciously prepared and beautifully presented. They were creative and a good mix of flavors and textures. We had the Sticky Toffee Pudding for dessert. It was the perfect end to a wonderful experience.

    My meal was tasty, but my wife’s was bland. She would have liked to have some more of the toppings added, but nobody checked on us once during our meal. We needed more drinks - nobody. We waited so long after being finished, that I finally had to go ask for the bill; it was clear they were not coming to our table. It was our first dinner on our honeymoon , and it was a very disappointing experience.

    Restaurant is part of hotel. Not many restaurants in this part of Isle of Skye. There are more restaurants in Portree but you need to reserve in advance otherwise difficult to get a booking. The hotel is in a nice location. The food is good, not special. Friendly people.

    Nice inside but food quality was very poor. Soup served with no bread at a cost of over £7. Guineafowl dish with dumplings which looked like gnocchi with no taste at all was floating in a what it looked a gravy soup to the point that a tissue needed to be wrapped around knife so it wouldn't drip down the hand. Black Forest cheesecake was lovely. Service was very good!
