“Mother's Day Dinner 10.02.13”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Excellent meal this evening.............fantastic choice on menu, and loads of fish and seafood. The Thai fish cakes were tasty, and the moules a la creme delicious (tho' a bit too much cream sauce maybe).........lime-leaf panacotta with lime and chilli syrup really hit the taste buds - superb!!

My husband had seafood soup, halibut on pea and chorizo risotto, and apple and rhubarb crumble with custard..............all of which he rated very highly.

And fabulous double espressos at the end

Worth mentioning too - the house wines, both white and red very palatable (Chilean Merlot and NZ Sauvignon Blanc)

“Wonderful dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

A chef who delighted in making a vegetarian a delicious spicy meal that wasn't even on the menu and a waitress who knows what customer service is all about.

“scalloway hotel reataurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

i love fish, the Mr hates it , but we have never had less than wonderful meals at the scalloway hotel restaurant, the service is good, the food is splendid, last time i had a scallop starter and halibut, one of my sons had the lobster, and with eleven of us in the group, we really appreciated your efforts to suit us all, the cheeseboard is excellent, but for a special occasion, the price was really worth it, thank you :)

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

Really fresh food - the fish courses my colleague had were excellent. The crockery and glasses are all Villeroy and Boch which adds to the excellence of it all.
The soup was best I've had

Went for a meal for my birthday. Staff were kind and very helpful but best of all was the meal which the best i have ever tasted. For starters i had Queen scallops and crab open ravioli which was beautiful. For the main course i had the lamb steak it was cook to perfection and so tasty. Great value for money I would recommend this restaurant to all.
