Obviously, Nantucket has many excellent restaurants. What sets Oran Mor apart is that it is a truly cohesive and different experience. From the design, to the service and food, we were transported in a unique place and had one of the best meals in a long time.

We were here for a previous anniversary and recently returned. It was a wonderful meal - the service was excellent, the food delicious, the dining room was lovely and it's a convenient walk near the center!

The entrance is up candlelit stairs with copper risers to the second floor where the dining areas are separated with tables a decent distance apart. The staff is competent - none of "who gets the halibut" as each person was correctly served what they asked for. Several fun specialty drinks are available - I had "The Aviator". Bread is free...

Oran Mor is an intimate setting located on the second floor of an old building just off Broad Street. Great circular bar at the top of the stairs as you enter the restaurant. There are three or four small dining rooms that provide for a fairly quiet atmosphere. The chef was recently imported from New York's Le Bernadin (one of... More

Siri chose this restaurant for us, i.e., "Find restaurants near me." just a block from where we were staying. After a little trouble finding the subtle entrance, we were immediately pleased with the attractive, quiet and intimate space. The food was excellent, well prepared and attractively presented, and not over-sauced or seasoned. The staff were patient and helpful in finding... More

We found the new owners have continued to make Oran Mor a lovely, special and delicious dining experience. On our visit we chose the Honey Peking Duck and Chicken Ballotine as our entrees and both were wonderfully prepared with classic flavors blended with unexpected twists. My duck had deliciously crispy skin over succulent slices of meat that were cooked to... More

Visited this restaurant a few days ago with 2 other couples. I loved the ambiance of this place, our waitress was very friendly and attentive, the drinks were fabulous and the bread divine but unfortunately our dinners were a disappointment. For the money we felt we should have been blown away. The pan seared scallops were lukewarm and the cauliflower... More

Not as good as last year. The theme and setting has changed. Maybe just an off night late in the season.
