Good for a quick food. Wide menu, different options in case of fishes or seafood, prompt attention. Nice place to see how the islanders live each day.

This is your more modern café. The food is good and the service is good also. There is plenty of dishes to choose from. Its clean, tidy and serves beer.

Fast food, but fresh. Everything is cooked fresh the service is fast, and the restaurant is clean. I recommend this for lunches, it's not for the romantic. More like a four stat Mc Donalds

A regular haunt of ours. Good food at good value with friendly staff. Stanley's only genuine "diner" experience and never fails to deliver. Kids love the selection of desserts.

We ate in Shorty's Diner 3 times whilst staying in Stanley. Always busy but service is very quick. You know it is always open and serving food. The food is adequate.

Had some great meals at Shorty's during our three-week visit to the Falklands. Good service, big menu, and the food is tasty and great value for money - well worth visiting.

It's what it says on the tin and it's great. Efficient and spotlessly clean. Friendly and helpful staff. We went several times, they remembered us and 'passed the time of day'. Broad menu that was consistently good. They're very accommodating too so you can swap rice for salad for example. It's not a restaurant, you shouldn't expect restaurant quality and... More

On a recent trip to Stanley me and a few mates how can I put it, done a bit to much building relations with the locals. The following morning a little worse for wear we stumbled across Shortys. The menu is a little on the large side making it almost impossible to choose as everything looks and smells amazing a... More

Judging from the amount of people seated when we arrived this is meant one of two things, it was a very popular place or the fact that its one of the only dinner style places open in Stanley in the evenings. The menu was extensive and the staff where OK. I did not enjoy what I had to eat but... More
