Popped in here during a day trip to Scalloway expecting the usual pub grub - how wrong! Restaurant quality food at very reasonable prices, and, honestly, some of the best coffee I've had! Really friendly service too, but not in-your-face at all. My only complaint would be that the fish pie was so filling I had no room for the... More

This is a very good restaurant that is well worth visiting. We went for a Valentine's Day dinner, and selected from the set menu offerings. We both had Scalloway fish soup for the starter, and it was absolutely delicious. My partner had the steak with a beef and oxtail stew topping for his main, and he felt that the topping... More

Small hotel with its own restaurant and bar. Friendly staff. Better to book and reserve your meal in advance if going in a large group. Good menu choices.

We were staying at the hotel and went to eat. The food was excellent and inventive. Don't expect huge portions, but all beautifully cooked.

Very good food and super service! I had Scallops and then the monkfish. Both dishes were great in both taste and texture.

Restaurant is of high quality and specializes in sea food - however, chef was more than happy to create special vegetarian menu for special occasion. Great service, great food

Excellent meal, fantastic service and the attention to detail was great. This is our local and although the restaurant is a bit pricey it meets the quality very well. I also recommend for a good meal to eat in the bar, this is a bit cheaper but the quality is equally good.

Thank Caroline L
