“Excellent fare”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

The food was outstanding. I had pork ribs and my husband had grilled aubergine baked with mozzarella and tomato over a bed of couscous. We had a seat at the window overlooking the busy port - great view. The ambiance was a bit noisy with a very large group (26 people?) occupying a table in the center.

“Lunch in Stornoway (Soup and a Sandwich)”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

Yes another restaurant that needs more staff during the summer period, waited 40 minutes on the food and 20 to be served.

Be aware of the potato and leek soup, it contains no or minute traces of leek, and is classified as vegetarian but made with a lamb stock.

Also be aware if you order the soup and sandwich from above there is no side salad.

Sandwich was ok, but requires the salad.

Staff over run and require help when it is busy during peak times and the holiday period.

“Best place in the Hebrides and breathtaking service”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

Me and my boyfriend came to Stornoway for a couple of days. We were astonished by the peerless quality of this restaurant...so that we even came back a second time!
The food was excellent and the choice of dishes a la carte was rather unique and impressively surprising. The location is exclusive, with a wonderful view on the laguna and all the romance of the ferries leaving from the port.
But, above all, a mention must be made about the staff: the waitress who we had the lucky chance to meet was the best we could desire in a cold April night. Kind, well-mannered, careful, welcoming, sympathetic and charming (we won't forget her flowery ornaments), Alana made up the exquisite atmosphere that we are still keeping in our memories as a warm tresure.
What a pleasure was also to take contact with Bosun, the manager of this unrivalled sea-side venue!
Thank you An Lanntair!

“Love it”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

We probably visit Lanntair at least once a week, sometimes more, when we are at our Island home and just love it . There've been a few reshuffles in the last month or so and when ever that happens it takes a while for things to settle down, but they have. The food is good, it doesn't pretend to be cordon bleu so if that's what you're looking for you may be disappointed but the food they serve is imaginative and delicious and the price is good. The view over the bay is tremendous and the staff are friendly and helpful, particularly Suzie and Debbie. We're back in Wales at the moment but look forward to returning.
