We had an absolutely fantastic meal at the Harbour kitchen. For starter we had scallops and they were the best scallops we have ever tasted. The main meals of hake and mussels were cooked to perfection. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful. We...really enjoyed the kitchen being in the middle of restaurant as you get to see what is going on. A must visit when is Stornoway!More
We had an absolutely brilliant meal in here a few Saturdays ago. Service was excellent, food was very tasty and there was a pleasant ambience. Would recommend for those looking for a dining experience whilst on the island.
Thank goodness our landlady at the B&B booked this restaurant for us in advance of our holiday. The scallops to start were amazing as was the white onion soup. My husbands sirloin steak and chips were nothing special as he said and not great. My...fishcakes were tasty but would have preferred them crispy on the outside. Yes would recommend it. Staff were very friendly, professional and efficient and the best staff we had encountered on the island.More
We ate dinner at the Harbour Kitchen in July. In our opinion it’s an excellent restaurant, and worthy of its #1 rating on the island.
The staff are all lovely, really friendly; the service is excellent, not too fast or too slow; and the place...has a good vide, buzzy and modern.
Don’t be put off by reviews that say the menu is limited or pricey. Customers can view the choice of dishes and cost via the Facebook page and decide on both those factors before booking (in my opinion!).
Finally the food is first class, unusual and creative deserts and good mains, predominantly fish but also a chicken and steak option. The salmon with pea purée is delicious.
So well done, we’d dine there again if we weren’t heading home …More
We had lunch on a Sunday, it was absolutely fabulous; the food was fantastic, the service was attentive & the whole experience was excellent
There is absolutely no surprise it is rated the top restaurant, this is fully justified - it is an absolute must...to visitMore
Just had an exceptional meal, staff were very pleasant and professional in every sense. We were totally safe in this environment given the Covid restrictions.
Food was amazing, tastiest fish ever and so fresh.
Totally recommend booking here!
Overall limited menu and rather Pricey, definitely felt more money orientated rather than customer focus. Moved along quickly before meal finished < 1.5 hrs. Food was bit too bland. Its a very small place - all tables full / not sure re meeting social distancing...measures ….More
Good food and service at The Harbour Kitchen. We felt that it was a little pricey and that the main course should have included side dishes (potatoes/vegetables/salad) rather than these being extra. Tasty food, the langoustines were especially good. A good choice in Stornoway.
Absolutely fantastic lunch here. Service was warm and welcoming, food selection and flavour was exceptional.
Great to see the buzz of a live kitchen as you wait.
Beautiful seafood selection with subtle added flavours.
