The best food in Shetland

The standard of food and service in this restaurant is rare anywhere and in Shetland probably even more so. Go no further. After havig experienced dinner in the Scalloway Hotel Restaurant the first evening we decided to have all suppers in this excellent restaurant. The food was out of this world.

Had a lovely meal here in the middle of a the week. The staff were friendly and the service was timely. The monkfish was brilliant. Best wine I've had in shetland too. Would definitely like to return.

Excellent food and service, both in bar and restaurant. Comfortably the best place to eat in Shetland. Never a disappointment.

The place is very suggestive and they serve typical food! I ate very well but they take too much time to prepare your food.. Anyway, the people is friendly and disponible!

Our meal was very disappointing, caeser salad with no salad, rump steak & lamb both tough, the only thing edible was the sweet which was very nice. We did complain but nothing done about it.

A small busy restaurant within the Scalloway Hotel, The menu is small but very interesting, the fish was delicious, our food was well presented and we couldnt fault the service. We stayed at the hotel for 3 night and the restaurant was always busy. You may need to make a reservation, as some nights it was full. If I had... More

A good choice for a special meal when you are in Shetland. A small dining room makes booking essential. The chef is clearly attempting to do something different with the fine local produce. Well worth a visit.

A dining experience that is rare to find in Shetland. Quiet dignified dining in their dining room. Saturday night may not be the best of nights to go if you do not like a lot of noise from the lounge bar which you enter through, a bit cramped as we waited to be seated but that only heightened the actual...

The food and service here were both very good and the little touches like the amuse bouche before the starter, the watermelon ice before the main course and the 4 different types of butter to go with the blue cheese brown rolls all made for a special meal. Service was however a little slow - maybe because each dish was... More
