Location and contact

Oran Mor Bistro is located up a flight of copper stairs in an historic Nantucket home. The restaurant has an intimate bar and three dining rooms with attractive earth-toned decor that are a warm prelude to delicious, beautifully prepared food. The bar radiates warmth of the past with its wide plank flooring, pen and ink bar top and gaff-rigged wine glass racks. Oran Mor features handcrafted cocktails from the freshest ingredients, house infusions and specialty spirits. The wine list predominantly features wines from France, small American producers as well as a travelogue of wines from around the world. Oran Mor Bistro is owned by Chef Edwin Claflin. The cooking style is one of inspired simplicity;

The place was crowded even just after opening time. Flavorful food, attentive service. Cozy ambience with fireplaces and lots of dark woods in the upper story of a house. You can look into the kitchen through an open window.

We just returned from a golf trip and our leader picked this restaurant due to his past visits. I must say, they couldn't have been nicer and more accommodating. Eighteen starving golfers and everyone left happy, full and content. Great job!

It was okay. I think my expectations were too high. Four nights on Nantucket and this was our least favorite meal. Tables were way too close for us. No privacy. They have a large wine selection and a sommelier. Ask for him (Nathan). Wish we...More
