The food was excellent. But pricey. Its also incredibly busy. We only got in because we were willing to eat as soon as they opened and had an open table. The food is beautifully presented, tasted incredibly good and desert is wonderful.

Food quality more associate with Knightsbridge rather than Scalpay (see photos)! Friendly service and a nice drive to the restaurant if you’re coming from Harris. Reasonably priced. BYO. All in all, well worth a trip.
