Not the best place to eat in Lerwick, but not the worst either. The service is good, the atmosphere and decor is good, the menu is good with specials every day, and the price is good. The food is of a decent quality and I have no complaints, although I have tasted better. Worth a meal.

The menu always has something for everyone. It was mid-week and busier than previous times but the service was still good. We came to Shetland 10... More

Food is amazing, even after a starter you are full. The food is sooo tastey and really good. There is good choice of different meals to choose from. If you are in Shetland You just have to go and see for yourself enjoy the amazing food.
