This was one of the most exceptional meals you can have in your life. Mary and Jim were the best hosts you can ask for. Down to earth and beautiful people. Do not pass this up. Take the time to eat there. You will understand.

A wonderful recommendation before crossing to Stromness. Tremendous welcome and delicious fresh food. Service very efficient and generally lovely atmosphere - busy but not noisy or crowded.

Had a wonderful meal here last Friday. Food was delicious and the staff were so friendly and attentive. The restaurant is small and intimate. Will definitely visit again when we are next in the area.

Coming to your restaurant had been on my wish list for 5 years.... it was well worth the wait! It did not disappoint in the slightest. Incredible food, set in a relaxing, welcoming atmosphere. You can tell there is thought and love put into every detail, from the food and it's presentation, to the way front of house is set and run. Loved every minute of our dinning experience. Thank you, Leanne Malcolm x

Truly a wonderful experience. The shellfish was done to perfection...not overcooked as is often the case elsewhere. The prices are reasonable considering what you get. The service was great even though when I visited you had a newby learning the ropes. She was very sweet and I appreciated you helping her with some of the service points. Best shellfish combo I’ve ever had...anywhere. Congratulations.

This is a truly unique restaurant. The welcome is warm and friendly and you are very well taken care of. We love seafood and this is the place for it. I asked what the market fish was and the answer was "what Jim thinks is the best if the days catch". It was fabulous, full of flavour, simply delicious. Thank you for a wonderful meal. Xx

Just one of the best and most enjoyable meals I have eaten, even though I was dining alone. Great fish and seafood perfectly cooked and seasoned were only enhanced by Mary and her young staff's friendly but efficient approach.

What a lovely place this is. You’re welcomed in the lounge with a drink. After choosing from the menu you’re guided to the restaurant. The food was first class. Fresh and delicious. We enjoyed the fish cakes, salmon and crab risotto, oysters and scallops. There are no wrong choices here. We strongly recommend this restaurant.
