We had a really excellent dinner at Bay Brasserie. Husband had steak with whisky sauce and loved it, followed by the pannacotta which had the perfect wobble. I had the hot seafood platter with cod, haddock, monkfish and mussels and everything was cooked perfectly. Service...More

We went there when we couldn't get in to another place nearby, and it was a very adequate substitute. I'd put it at number two of the Lerwick restaurants I've reviewed. It does have nouvelle cuisine pretensions, but the portion sizes are good.
