I went to the Scalloway Hotel Restaurant on Saturday evening with my fiancé and my parents for a treat as my parents were visiting from the south. We were not to be disappointed and were still delighting over our delicious dishes on the way home! The calm atmosphere with darkened soft lighting, candles in tall glass lanterns in the windows...

Although I ate in the bar at lunchtime the food was first class, but I thought the fresh orange and lemonade was a wee bit on the high side. Decoration is nothing special, but the owner was friendly and chatty.

Best food in Shetland in terms of varied menus, fresh ingredients and knowledgable staff. More expensive than most but good value for a special occasion.

Amazing food, using high quality Shetland produce to full effect. Excellent service too - whether you want to take your time and enjoy the evening or (as in my case on this visit) eat relatively quickly.

After we took our seats the dining room quickly filled up to capacity so we were fortunate. I had hake, this lovely fish at its freshest best, flaking and moist and delicious. Husband... More

Our meal was a birthday treat and fulfilled all our expectations. The young waiters and waitresses were friendly but well trained, answering questions about the menu and wine. The food was fresh and beautifully cooked.

We arrived at the Hotel with seconds to spare after a last minute hitch, but as soon as we approached the restaurant door the staff were wonderfully welcoming and showed us to our table and made us feel like honoured guests! The Menu was interesting and the little canapés were a lovely little touch. All In all the meal was... More
