“Expensive juice!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

We popped in here for a main meal & it was average. I had a club sandwich which has perfectly cooked bacon but far too much mayonnaise - so much so I couldn't finish it as it was quite sickly. The chips were also overcooked. My partner had chorizo penne bolognese & he enjoyed it. It was nice & spicy with large bits of chorizo. The portions were far too big for us to finish. I was not impressed to pay £2.25 for a can of pepsi!

“What a waste”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2012

Well to say its over priced and rubbish service is the under statement of the year.. Walk in with a table of 3 not very busy atoll had to clear our own table, waited 10mins before any staff recognised they had any customers in.. Watched the table next to us leave because no one served them for 15 mins.. I had some overpriced burger... Under seasoned over cooked the salad was just a random collection of leaves... Restaurant was freezing cold... Whole place needed a clean... Staff wear scruffy looking with no uniform... What a waste of money and if i ever end up stuck in lerwick in the rain am having a chippy in a bus stop..

“Poor service, poor food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2012

Very much as if all food is cooked/fried from frozen and makes for poor quality food at high prices. A 330ml can of juice is £2.25... The waitress we were served by had little manners or patience.

“really poor service and very average food!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

went in for early supper at this restaurant to find very grumpy teenage staff who seemed more interested in texting than being helpful! Service was very slow! The food was average at best and the whole place seemed grubby - our table was sticky from previous customers! I have been to several of the paparazzi chain of restaurants now and all have been poor - will def not be back!

“Great food and fast service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

The night I visited, the front of Osla's was full of noisy young Norwegians off the sailing ship STATSRAAD LEHMKUHL letting off steam. Despite the noise level, the staff gve excellent and relly quick service. There is a wide an varied continental menu including pasta and pizza dishes, and lighter meals through the day. I had a butterfly chicken dish which arrived at my table very promptly and was exquisitely presented on a large plate with a little cup of chips, two glases of dips and a side salad. I had some sort of ice cream sundae and that too was a work of art. So when next in Lerwick, make a beeline for Osla's and you won't be disappointed.
