This review is taken from the current (2013) edition.
Skerries is the restaurant within the Dunstane House Hotel and its grand dining room, ornately decorated with cornicing, chandeliers and large mirrors, has the hushed atmosphere often found in such rooms. The menu is fairly traditional, without much experimentation on offer, but the dishes have a broad appeal. A starter of haggis bon-bons is full of peppery kick and crunch, and a plate of well-flavoured smoked salmon is pleasant. Despite calling itself a seafood restaurant, however, there is quite a narrow selection of fish on offer. Loch Duart salmon is competently cooked and paired with smokey Puy lentils, while the tempura battered haddock is light with a citrus zing and accompanied by very good chips. Desserts are a highlight: a rich chocolate tart is infused with lemon and given some textural interest by a crust of pistachios, and crème brûlée is lifted by the addition of pineapple and a disc of coconut shortbread.
