I sent compliments to the chef for the lemon tart, it was excellent, everything on the plate went together really well. We've been visiting your restaurant for many years and have never had a bad meal.

Our food was absolutely delicious and have paid more, for less good quality cooking elsewhere. The service was just right - ensuring we were okay but not too intrusive. The view from the dining room is second to none - the best stay we had in Scotland by far. Thank you

Love the smoke beef brisket sandwich! Comes with nice salad and what tastes like excellent thick potato crisps! Nice simple lunch!

Wonderful three night stay at the Cuillin Hills Hotel. Dined in The View restaurant each evening. The food was beautifully presented, of high quality and delicious. The menu is imaginative and local produce is greatly valued. The staff are professional, friendly and attentive. The view from the restaurant is truly awe inspiring, never to be forgotten! We will have great pleasure in recommending both the hotel and restaurant to family and friends.

Excellent starters. Main courses were very poor. Burger tasted like it was re-heated and the hand cut chips were pathetic and not hand cut. I would not recommend this restaurant.

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights at the start of May 2021. The food is brilliant and staff are so attentive, friendly and welcoming. Couldn’t fault the service, apologising for delays when there wasn’t even a delay (5 mins for drinks to the room is outstanding!). They’re all working so hard given the restrictions in place. Hope things continue to ease so things get easier for the staff too. Would recommend this hotel & restaurant to anyone visiting portree.

We had booked for 6pm on the night in question. None of us wanted a starter therefore we had to wait till nearly 7pm before we started to get our dinner. We were told by Steve that we would need to wait till the other people had had their starters before the kitchen dealt with the dinners. We booked at 6pm for a reason not 7pm. We just thought that this needs brought to your attention that not everyone eats 2 or 3 courses. The steak we got was not that warm but my partner wouldn’t say about it, the rest of it was lovely but because of this wait we did not eat dinner in the hotel for the rest of our stay. The hotel and all the staff were lovely and could not fault them for anything, thank you for our stay

Lovely lunch, we had the small plates as a tapas style lunch and loved every dish. Staff couldn’t have been more attentive. I’m just hoping next time I’ll be able to have an alcoholic drink with my food 🤣 can’t wait to come back.

We had the venison and the hake as mains and both were absolutely delicious! And the rest of the meal was wonderful too! The service was outstanding.
