Better than Le Gavroche, The Waterside, The Fat Duck and Sat Bains. Our 10-course tasting menu was exquisite. Every dish was a festival of taste and texture. No need for silly dry ice stunts here. The food speaks for itself. The impeccable and subtle service...from the team was lovely, with no pretentious prancing about that you get in some of the aforementioned places. The relaxed spacing of the tables topped it off. Very very good.More

Delicious breakfast. Nice bar, edinbane inn , a short walk away...which was nice to walk to for a drink. Edinbane pottery right next door. Great stayMore

Lunched here and went for 4 course tasting menu, 7 too much at lunch time. The food was sensational, one canape, a single mussel with ginger and other spices, was so good that my wife and I just looked at each other in amazement. Must...be worth a Michelin Star. Along with the menu they produce a listing of where they source all the ingredients, and these all appear to be very local, really good to see.More

We were fortunate enough to have a lunch and a dinner at Edinbane lodge, while holidaying in Skye. Amazing food and service. This place is definitely heading towards a Michelin star.

I was looking for somewhere new to try on our annual trip to the highlands, after reading the good reviews I booked a table for 4 for the lunch menu. Would love to have tried the evening menu, but it just a bit too far...to drive at night from where we stay in plockton. On entry we had a lovely welcome. The room is comfortable with tables well spaced. We had lovely service, good wine and excellent food. There were no choices but everything we had was delicious so no problem The produce is local and of great quality, could have happily gone for a snooze and came back for dinner. I believe you can stay so will do that next time! All the crockery comes from the pottery next door which is well worth a visit. I strongly suspect a star will be on the way….More

A lot of what has been said about the food I would be repeating. It really was a great experience and everything being from Skye is a real unique point. The quality was excellent. The room was also really lovely. We were well looked after...by the chap at front of house on arrival and for breakfast. The breakfast was also excellent and we loved the use of Edinbane Pottery in the rooms and for both meals. Beautiful.More

Stunning lunchtime experience sampling the 6 course tasting menu. The restaurant was able to accommodate some dietary requirements without any fuss at all and the staff were very clear in highlighting this when describing each course in detail. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and efficient….a...first class service. The locally sourced food, it’s presentation and perfect cooking, all led to a memorable experience. We will definitely return.More

A very happy dining experience at Edinbane Lodge. The tastes, execution and composition were memorable, and I loved the emphasis on fresh colour which was brilliantly enhanced by the stunning locally-made stoneware. Hard to single out.. but the best standouts for me were the prawns...with the orange butter sauce and the Falasgair (heather-based dessert). The one disappointment came with the final course - Meadowsweet w/blackcurrant leaf - which I feel betrayed its promise and appearance. This was the only course which lacked subtlety and taste profile for me: I was anticipating a fruity element to balance out the sweetness, but just found it overly sugary. The breads and wild garlic butter were great (the steamed brioche was luxurious!). I see that a previous reviewer has faulted the pacing of the courses: I found this to be pretty spot on, though the wine flight could have been timed better: the wine arrived a bit early in advance of each course, meaning that I was tempted to drink it on its own, with the result that there was too little remaining to enjoy as accompaniment to the food! All in all, Mr Montgomery and team do a superb job... Michelin star contender perhaps?... but definitely a feather in Skye's, and even Scotland's, culinary cap.More

If you get remotely near Skye, get yourself to the Edinbane Lodge. It delivers on all accounts and in my eyes it’s a crime that it cannot boast a Michelin star yet (though this is surely on its way). We had been on a whistle...stop tour of Skye and the other islands and decided to eat here one night as neither of us had really experienced fine dining before. The first thing that struck me was the relaxed atmosphere. (I was worried that as a first-timer at a place so serious about the food it produces that it might be too formal to have a laugh and enjoy your company, but this was not the case) The ambience created by the room, the music and the front of house staff was hugely welcoming. From the canapés to the pre dessert (that’s right, you get two desserts), the delicious food was accompanied by efficient and elegant service. We wanted to thank Sergio, the charming waiter and sommelier, who seemed to be a real force for good in the restaurant, though this is not to detract from everyone’s exceptional service. Though I am used to seeing more food on a plate, the fact you get ten courses of what was in my opinion, perfectly cooked and prepared food which was evidently all local and seasonal, there can be no doubt that I got more than my money’s worth in both quality and quantity. Hats off to the whole team at Edinbane Lodge- you guys have created something special.More
