We had a family celebratory dinner, 10 adults and 1 child. One of the adults is vegetarian and doesn't eat mushrooms or goats cheese. James created a bespoke menu and her food was fantastic. The children's portion was very generous. The other adults chose from different menus and the food was excellent quality and enjoyed by all. Great service and... More

Classy food, classy place, great service. Really loved it and will return soon. The food was simply stunning. We went as a group of three, we all had something different and each dish looked and tasted amazing. Loved the artwork too.

I wholeheartedly recommend this restaurant. This a fine dining but not pretentious restaurant at the centre of Stornaway and it was a lovely surprise because we didn’t know what to make of the name of it. The decor is lovely. Staff are friendly and relaxed and the food was sophisticated but honest and unpretentious. Prices were good too. The portions... More

The Digby Chick is definitely one of the best restaurants not just in the Western Isles but anywhere along the west coast of Scotland. It delivers superb meals with a friendly charm and impressively competitive prices. I dined here with fellow academics from Stornoway taking advantage of the restaurant's early evening three course menu. This offers more than half-a-dozen choices... More

My friend and I dined here and had a fabulous 3 course meal. I really like seafood and had the mussels to start and hake as a main course. The hake was beautifully cooked. The dessert of meringue and chocolate brownie with ice cream was also delicious. The waiting staff were very attentive and there was a lovely atmosphere. Although... More

I had dinner here with a business colleague this week. We were both delighted with the menu and could not have been happier with our food. This is fine dining, beautifully served, at a very reasonable price. If you are in Stornoway, this restaurant is a must. Do not miss it!

Absolutely fantastic food, attentive and friendly staff. Started with amazing langoustines in a garlic butter, followed by the best fillet of beef I've ever tasted! We will definitely be back...lovely treat!

The food was exceptional... You cannot come to Stornoway and not visit this restaurant. A very good early bird menu £22.50 for 3 courses... Great choice of food. Private dining upstairs if you're in a larger group.

I had read the good reviews, and was expecting to be at least a little disappointed. But I was NOT. Not at all! We went as a group of four for the early bird dinner. Every course was extremely well prepared, perfectly presented, with excellent table service and attention. Attentive but not intrusive. Although it was not the full menu,... More
