The starters were nice but the meal went downhill from there. My main was not anything like that advertised on the menu, the salmon fillet was tiny and there was no flavouring on my vegetables, which consisted of boiled carrots and broccoli with not even salt or pepper on them. The mussels and asparagus which were on the menu were... More

Orders muddled up. Had to wait 10 minutes staring at cooling plate of food while partners order prepared. Second course wrong. Had to wait 15 minutes for partners food to be cooked while mine was kept 'warm'. Unhygienic.

I have had some lovely meals here so i was disappointed by a celebration Sunday lunch for our family in September. The beef was tender but rather tasteless, there were far too few vegetables (a dish on the table to serve yourself and top up would have been better). We had a nice table in the conservatory and enjoyed the... More

We had a great experience on the Friday night, staff very good and attentive and food was very nice. We booked again for the Saturday night and were very disappointed with the service, not sure what happened obviously there were problems as we were offered a free drink. The food was still good but service was terrible, shame.

We enjoy the way a lot of the hotels and manor houses serve dinner. You start in a sitting area order and they take you to your table when the food is ready to be served. My husband chose to have two starters instead of a meal. He had the house cured salmon and the scallops and enjoyed them both.... More

We had a large family meal here, 12 people, and we all thought it was extremely good. The staff were very friendly and accommodating and the food was excellent. There was nothing to complain about which meant we could all just have a great family meal out.

I ate at Solas a couple of times while on a business trip to Lewis. There is an interesting choice of menu items including some twists on some Scottish mainstays. A good selection of game (hare and venison) as well as steaks and locally caught fish and shellfish. The staff are attentive and looked after me well. The restaurant can... More

Actually, Solas Brasserie. We had a wonderful evening.

The team looking aftre us were great. We had just rolled... More

For a good Sunday dinner with loads of choice, excellent service and comfortable surroundings I would recommend this restaurant. It is located within the hotel so parking at the door.

We were hard pressed to find somewhere to dine in Stornoway that offered quality dining in pleasant surroundings. Solas is such a place and offers great value at reasonable prices with quality food presented well. It's not a long walk from the town centre or, a4-5 minute drive if you have a car. Either way it's definitely worth making the... More
