Description: At the Foveran, you can enjoy the finest Orkney produce in a relaxed and comfortable setting with stunning views across historic Scapa Flow. Superb seafood features strongly on our menu along with prime beef and lamb. We work closely with local livestock farmers, fishermen and growers to select the best seasonal produce for our larder ensuring we obtain the highest quality. We strive to create dishes from the freshest, local ingredients. Our philosophy is about using the elements of Orkney's natural environment to produce dishes which are tasty and memorable. We also offer a wide range of carefully selected wines, liqueurs, local craft beers, gins and malts. These can be enjoyed at your table, or in the more relaxed setting of the lounge. We're really proud to have been four times winner of the Orkney Food and Drink 'best evening meal' Award Winner of Best use of Orkney Food and Drink products 2016 Award and the first 'Orkney Masterchef 2014 title.

We had the most delicious dinner at The Foveran to celebrate a Birthday. The food was delicious and many ingredients are locally sourced. Service was excellent and the ambience is cosy and restful. A great dinner destination in the Orkney Islands.

Excellent, subtle but attentive service and good food. I was particularly pleased that a vegan menu was available. I only wish that the (very tasty) petit fours could have also been vegan.

Very smart restaurant with rooms and worth finding it just outside Kirkwall. Friendly staff and good food presented well. My husbands scallops were some of the best that he has eaten. My sea bass was delicious. Busy with locals...always a good sign.

Visited this excellent establishmnet this week, to celebrate my daughter's 40th birthday. We were a large party, including several children and even a babe in arms. The children were welcomed with open arms and colouring books and were offered an excellent children's menu of proper food - not the usual frozen fare for kids. The main menu was amazing - so much choice - the seafood is renowned here and this meal was no exception. Scallops and monkfish cooked to perfection! Venison and steaks were also popular and very much enjoyed. The staff are young, friendly and attentive, with every need taken care of immediately. The beautiful restaurant, fairly recently refurbished I think, was busy and buzzing with a cheery upbeat atmosphere. Make this a definite on your next trip to Kirkwall - but better book up as it seems to be pretty busy! Fantatsic job Foveran - thank you!
