Welcome to Uig Sands Restaurant, Isle of Lewis
We are delighted to be opening again on Wednesday 19th May 2021. We can’t wait to have the doors open and the pans cooking! We’re so grateful for all the support shown to us over the past year, all the messages and support has meant a lot to us all.
Online bookings are now open for Wednesday – Saturday evenings from 4pm until the end of September. We do intend to add the Tuesday evening once we have had a few weeks back in the swing of it.
We do plan to be open in October also but we won’t open these bookings until 90 days before.
Depending on the time of year and availability we will also be taking bookings for larger events, weddings and parties, please get in touch for details. Exclusive use of the restaurant space for up to 40 people starts at £2,500 per day.
We decided to build a restaurant in Uig, Isle of Lewis in September 2016 after conducting a survey to gauge local opinion. We are so grateful to LEADER and HIE for their financial help, support and guidance. Without these grants and the help of our bank loans we could not have built the restaurant. After a lot of work, such as creating a 450yd track across the land, building finally started in May 2018.
The restaurant is a modern design by Dualchas Architects and has large windows spanning one wall to make the most of the view. O’Mac Construction completed the build to a tight time-frame and without fault.
The restaurant will seat up to 40.
The restaurant has a focus on fresh and local produce with an emphasis on local seafood.
One of our principal aims was to create jobs locally and also help to serve the increasing tourist trade.
Seumas Macdonald, who lives locally in Aird Uig, is head chef.
We are delighted to welcome Kenny Mackay from Carloway, to the team who will be supporting Seumas and also assisting in the management of the restaurant.
