Usually a price fixed menu tends to be like eating food at a wedding, but to our grand surprise we had the most unbelievable meal last night!! The place is under new ownership and surpasses the former owners already great food. What a grand night!!!!

This is an intimate setting for dinner with family, friends or couples. The bar is small and quaint, and the tables are close, but it is a great place for dinner. Their menu offers a wide array of dinner selections without going overboard.

Always a great restaurant! New owner/chef was smart and did not change the name or ambiance, but a new menu that is terrific. Try it!

Service and food were great. The atmosphere was extremely cozy and romantic. It's an old house so table are fairly close but doesn't feel tight. Was a bit pricey but typically for the area.

Oran Mor Bistro is located up a flight of copper stairs in an historic Nantucket home. The restaurant has an intimate bar and three dining rooms with attractive earth-toned decor that are a warm prelude to delicious, beautifully prepared food. The bar radiates warmth of the past with its wide plank flooring, pen and ink bar top and gaff-rigged wine glass racks. Oran Mor features handcrafted cocktails from the freshest ingredients, house infusions and specialty spirits. The wine list predominantly features wines from France, small American producers as well as a travelogue of wines from around the world. Oran Mor Bistro is owned by Chef Edwin Claflin and Jon Tancinco. The cooking style is one of inspired simplicity; each ingredient complements one another to create a unique, savory dish. The evolving and innovative menu is derived from the changing seasons and their bountiful offerings. Showcasing native seafood, fresh local produce and naturally raised meats from select farms.
