Located on East side of village, near sign to "Serpentarium", just off the main road, turn inland into Limepark/Blackpark.

A friend (Paul) plus my brother (Peter) and sister in law (Rosemary), nearing the end of a cycling tour of the Hebrides, were delighted to stumble across this little seafood restaurant near to our B & B, on Monday 20th May.

There are no more than half a dozen tables, so it is wise to book, particularly during the summer season, as Skye is now a popular holiday destination. They do not take bookings (at least when we went) after 9pm.

The surroundings are very simple, and the menu fairly limited, but the mouthwatering seafood starters and maincourses should appeal to anyone who enjoys this type of food.

The names of starters and maincourses escape me (many with Scottish/Gaellic names), but principally both consisted of items such as Scallops, Languistines, Squid, Prawns, Muscles, Salmon etc., all attractively served with a selection of fresh vegetables and or salad. I particularly enjoyed my main course which was a Seafood Gumbo, consisting of all sorts of shellfish cooked in a spicy sauce.

The desserts were all also delicious, and Rosemary was particularly impressed with her Scottish speciality, consisting of a mixture of oatcake fruit and cream.

All of the above was washed down with a couple of bottles of pleasant Muscadet, and followed by coffee and excellent malt whiskies, Laphroag from Islay (very peaty), and Talisker from Skye (very smooth).

As is evident, my memory of the detail on the menu is sketchy through the alcohol and ambience of the evening, but that tells its own story as to the general friendliness of the place and the staff, who really made us feel at home.

The cost was average, total for 3 course plus drinks between 4 of us just over 100, with main courses between around 8 - 13.

We had found on our trip round both the Western Isles and Skye, very few places of note to eat, and seafood extremely scarce in this major fishing area - it's nearly all exported to Europe. It was therefore a pleasure to find this little restaurant, which is convenient for those recently arriving from the mainland accross the Skye Bridge, Broadford being the first place of any size (!?) that you come across.
