The Highland Roast coffee - roasted in Inverness, and the Mallaig smoked salmon, like much of the other food here, is as local as you can get, and all the better for it. Wonderful!

This is our 3rd visit to The Old School Restaurant and it never fails to please - even during Covid. It felt a bit more relaxed this time with restrictions having eased a bit. There was plenty of choice on the menu and the service is great. We were well taken care of and had a fabulous meal. Will definitely be returning on our next visit to Skye.

The premises was spotlessly clean.There was a lovely atmosphere the staff were cheerful and full of smiles, they couldn't do enough for you. My wife had the mussels whilst I had the fish and chips which I struggled to finish due to the amount. Both meals were tasty, hot and good value for money. I would certainly eat at Old School Restaurant if in the area. Thank you to all the staff.

There was a very good choice on the menu. We had the haggis to start with, followed by fish pie. They were both beautiful. Couldnt fault anything. Will definitely be back when we visit the Island again... just have to remember to book well ahead as it is so popular!!

Food, staff and service outstanding. The marginal reduced score was due to customers continually leaving the door to the bar open. I was at the table nearest the internal door to the bar. I had to go and close it several times. Please fit a door closer to the outer door.
