Review of Flavour

Flavour
Description: We operate a "pop-up" restaurant in various locations throughout the island. We invite you to join us for a 6 course Hebridean fusion menu creating using local produce and speciality ingredients from around the world. We source our vegetables from a local grower in Luskentyre, Chris often dives/ catches the seafood or sources it straight off the boat in Leverburugh and we use local lamb/venison from West Harris, Taransay or Amhuinnsuidhe Castle. We can also cater to weddings and events, provide corporate cooking/ chocolate workshops & demonstrations. ***Please note we have a bring your own wine policy***

We booked the dining service by the talented chef Chris Loye twice while we stayed on the wonderful Isle of Harris. One was a catering service, the other was a multiple course live cooking event for two in our accommodation. Communication with him up front was friendly and easy.

Both meals were of an extremely high standard using predominantly local produces. Chris has a real passion for culinary and incorporates high expertise. Especially his Hebridean Fusion Menu was a prime example of how to creatively process the local larder.

We run a gourmet restaurant and always search for great spots for food when we travel. We were lucky to find the service offered by Chris in this remote location and cannot recommend him more. Thanks again and good luck for the future!

From start to finish it was flawless cooking showcasing Isle of Harris produce. What a treat it really was. We received our voucher for flavour as a wedding present and we had a great night. The lobster pakora gorgeous, the parsnip soup how Chris can you make that so tasty? The black pudding and qual egg wow, the Harris saddle of venison cooked to perfection great red cabbage. I could go on just enjoy the pictures and get it booked when you can. Well done Chris & Nicola can't wait to get more great food.

Visited Flavour Pop Up Restaurant on their last pop up of the season & it was superb.
Chris,Nicola & extra help with washing up lady served us a fabulous, tasty, flavoursome dinner using local produce from the Isle of Harris.
We had heard and read good reviews and we weren’t disappointed.
One of our party is Vegan and they made just as much effort in making her dinner as delicious as the other meals both in choice of food and presentation. She was as delighted with her meal as we were with ours.
Great value too and all in all a lovely evening
Thank you Sue
