Very good service with a friendly and funny bartender. The food was excellent. We had 2 starters each, and all were delicious. Scallops, crab in a cream sauce ( messy but worth the effort) and beautifully tender fried calamari cooked in a light batter. Superb!

I've said this already but it bears repeating: it's intensely frustrating when guests give no indication, at the time, that they are unhappy, and then damn us on TripAdvisor afterwards . Yours was the last table at the end of a very busy service. It...More

This must be the best restaurant in Shetland. The food and service are second to none with a great wine list. The fish and seafood are excellent - have the lobster when available!

I went here recently with a friend and had a great meal. Service was brilliant and between meals the staff would come out with little extras. Nice, relaxing atmosphere. Food pricey but worth it.

This place ticked all the boxes - located on the seafront, friendly staff, warm decor and great service. Easily one of the best burgers I've ever eaten!
