Dinner for a large group

Had a lovely 3 course dinner with my group of 18 friends. The fish was cooked perfectly, the desserts were divine and the staff was delightful. I would definitely eat here again!

I was visiting the Shetland Islands for the first time, but with friends who are frequent visitors. At their suggestion, we had dinner at the Scalloway Hotel Restaurant, reputedly the finest fish restaurant in the islands. I can well believe it. The halibut was fantastic. Overall, the meal (and the wine) were excellent, perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. The amuse... More

We ate in the restaurant after reading good things about it on TA plus it was a long day in the saddle and we wanted to treat ourselves. We both really enjoyed the evening meal. I had Crab Bisque followed by Lamb rump and a small cheese board (I'm looking at the bill as I type this 8 months later.... More

We always make a point of eating here when in Shetland on holiday and it’s one of the few places offering a ‘fine dining’ experience in the isles. The food is always good and the staff friendly and attentive. As others have said, it can be a little pricey but it’s by far the best place on the isles for... More

This place serve the best seafood I ever had. It is a little expensive but well worth it for the special occasion. One of the very few places worth going out to in Shetland.

Simple setting with very good food. A friend took me to the hotel for dinner and recommended the seafood. I had lobster and it was cooked beautifully, lightly cooked with twice cooked potato batons as a tasty accompaniment. We shared a chocolate desert. Really enjoyable night out. Went for a walk after the meal around the picturesque Scalloway harbour.

Super ambiance, great appetizers and a wonderful meal with excellent service. Loved it! Very posh! I had a fish curry, mum had crab cakes and salad and our friend had lamb. We all had a nice night out on Scalloway.

I live in Shetland, and right now, this has to be the best place to eat. It's got a cosy ambience, good unfussy service and above all, a varied, well-cooked menu. They could maybe have more vegetarian choices (and not assume all vegetarians like cheese) but that is a very common fault. What they offer, they cook well, especially fish,... More
