Wonderful seafood in a cosy setting. Be warned, they don't take reservations, so you need to be in line for the first sitting at 6pm if you're trying to guarantee yourself some delicious mussels, which are served with the chef's choice of sauce each night....More

This restaurant sits on Portree Harbor - very quaint and charming. We stopped here for lunch...it was crowded however we were able to snag a seat before they closed. Ordered the mussels and they were outstanding.

The restaurant is located directly on the Portree Harbor. We could watch the fishing boats bobbing in the water. "No crab today" but the Cullen Stink and Fish Burger were both excellent. The staff was very efficient for a very busy place.

Nice staff, good environment and delicious mussels. As it is quite busy, so you need to come early as they dont take reservation.
