“Very reasonable and great fresh produce”

SALT Seafood Kitchen
Restaurant details
Reviewed 20 August 2018

Firstly, the views are spectacular and make for a very pleasant setting. The menu is rather limited by some standards, but offers enough variety for most people. The emphasis is upon quality local produce, served in a relaxed setting with friendly staff. We had the Spinneys and Langoustines for starters, which were great finger food and notably fresher than other restaurants we had tried. For mains we had the Lobster Mac (aronie cheese) and Salmon Burger, both of which were very pleasant. The desserts were also excellent - the salted caramel brownie and creme brulee are both worth trying!

For the price, we felt it offered good value. It's not a al carte dining, but it is wholesome food, in a picturesque setting, served by friendly local staff. Definitely recommended, we would return again - just make sure you book in advance as they had to turn people away while we were dining.

Well, well, well, what a wonderful find in a remote spot on Scotland's West Coast.

Let's start with the building. It's about as simple and cozy. The kitchen, which is tiny and right next to the dining area, is fitted out with pretty basic cooking equipment but don't let this fool you. The food that the chef and owner creates in this space is about as good as it gets!

Next, the views. They're breathtaking. You can see right across the bay, out to the Summer Isles. Views don't get much better.

Then, the service. Fabulous. You are well looked after.

Finally, the food. I've already touched on it. One word. Brilliant. If you love seafood, you'll adore this place. You won't find much fresher or better anywhere in the world (and I've eaten in many places around the world). The food is local and mouth watering.

We drove a couple of hours to eat here and it was well worth it.

Salt Seafood Kitchen is a hidden gem of a place. I can't recommend it enough.

Bon Apetite.

Our table had a perfect view over the Summer Isles, with the sun setting and a view of Lewis in the far distance. As locations go, it takes some beating. Run by lovely people who love well cooked food that is sourced locally. The service and the food were both excellent. Some great taste combinations, like the mackerel and beetroot salad, together with simply but well cooked scallops and langoustines. The menu is family friendly. I would totally recommend SALT. In fact we’ve booked for another night!

Visited Salt again (we visited for the first time last year) for a fabulous meal at the end of our holiday here. Our fish was all so fresh and tasty and everything was cooked to perfection. We visited on quite a choppy day (although the views in the evening sunshine were perfect) and I had wondered whether the catch would be at its best. Wonderful pickled herring to start. We asked if they could do us a platter and they did, despite the absence of crab/oysters, with copious langoustines, scallops and mussels. It was superb! My wife had a langoustine macaroni cheese which sounded a little dull but - wow! - it tasted amazing! I had cranachan for pud which was excellent.
Salt is a fantastic enterprise. Seafood cooked lovingly by folk who know exactly how to do it properly. I will continue to dream of those scallops for the coming year. Heaven!!
