Absolute winner - we loved the food, the service, our waitress, the prices! The mussels were the biggest, plumpest and best we’ve ever seen, the beef cheeks tender and to-die-for, chicken amazing, toffee pudding the best I’ve had in Scotland (and I’ve been trying it everywhere I see it on the menu). Cath our waitress was totally entertaining and took such great care of us. Will DEFINITELY be back when next in Skye and will recommend to everyone heading up that way.

Old School Restaurant was our second great meal on the Isle of Skye. I love the fresh langostinos that I had. They were very fresh and sweet. My husband enjoyed his meal as well. Everything during the meal was excellent. We highly recommend the place. We are from Massachusetts, USA, where we had great seafood, but we loved our food at Old School Restaurant. Thank for making our stay memorable. the Bambergs.

2 of the factors which are particularly important when eating out is the quality of the food and the quality of the service. The Old School Restaurant was excellent on both counts. We ate there for 2 successive evenings and wouldn't hesitate for one moment in both returning or recommending this excellent restaurant. Dean

The food was amazing, one of my favorite meals in Scotland. Try the sticky toffee pudding and the mushroom risotto.
