About Captain's Galley Seafood Restaurant
Jim & Mary’s Philosophy
Simplicity, Integrity, Traceability, Seasonality and Sustainability are the five pillars upon which Jim and Mary Cowie sympathetically renovated the ‘Scrabster Ice House & Salmon Bothy’ creating - Captain’s Galley - one of the world's leading seafood restaurants.
Given the circumstances, it was all little strange as we were one of only two tables that evening. Everything was excellent. We were passing en route to Stromness and will certainly visit again if we are there in future.
Really great food! Fresh and flavorful seafood. Fruit de mer was worth it and the paella was a lovely addition. Staff were attentive and friendly. Thanks for a great meal
Fantastic view, lovely welcoming people and the best seafood. This is a real gem a a grewt place to stop for a meal whilst doing thr NC500. We hope to come back for more lobster and scampi soon! Thank you!
We loved the setting and food. It is great to support a local businesses despite the restrictions in place.
The most delicious fish we've ever tasted! The smorgas to start were excellent!
Great dinner for 5 people The food was superb and good value for money. The service was very nice and the setup for the social distancing was well signposted. A vet good experience and would thoroughly recommend this restaurant
A terrible experience.
Was rather quiet without background music.
With everything going on in the world this team is doing an amazing job to provide a wonderful experience! One of the best meals I have had in a long time! The Paella was delicious!
Fantastic little place, wide selection of beautiful seafood on offer, great quality and large portions. Would highly recommend!
We had an excellent meal served by friendly waiters in this tiny restaurant.
Amazing food. Fab service with staff recommendations and could tell They really knew their stuff! The fish was so tasty! Cosy little atmosphere!
So great to find Scrabster Seafood Bar open whilst the Captain’s Table isn’t. Disappointing but totally understandable A warm welcome from Mary, who enthusiastically showed me how to tackle my delicious plate of langoustines. A treat to eat such fresh produce - my husband proclaimed his oysters to be the best he’d ever had.
Deliciously fresh seafood paella. The whole meal was delicious. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the efforts the team made to accommodate the COVID rules whilst maintaining some business. The waiting-on staff were friendly with natural professionalism and enjoyment in carrying out their roles. It's so important to celebrate the fruits of our seas and I hope it won't be too long before we return.
Loved this place, food amazing and staff very friendly from the minute we arrived. A very quaint place, no frills but delicious food and wine.
Excellent selection of delicious seafood. Warm and attentive service, including a post dining visit to the table by the chef/owner. Light and airy dining area. Limited wine list.
Loved our dinner. Such a nice vibe. Chef came out at the end of the evening and talked about an amazing fish which was on the menu called tusk. I didn’t have it but have had it subsequently in Westray. It’s an absolutely divine fish quite meaty like a monkfish. It is a good honest place. Great service.
The paella that my husband ordered was the best he’d ever tasted! The only thing I didn’t like was the food served on paper plates but Under the difficult circumstances of COVID 19 I fully understand why this was. Myself and my husband would highly recommend your restaurant 😊
Food excellent, friendly staff, well worth a visit.
Shame our table was given away and we were simply told we would have to wait for it to become free.
We were expecting to eat in the Captain’s Galley but instead ate in the Seafood Snack Bar due to COVID-19 restrictions. We didn’t discover this until we arrived. Nevertheless the food was absolutely delicious and made up for the disappointment of not eating in the Captain’s Galley.
Lovely food and all very organised. Waitresses lovely and very efficient!
Fantastic food and a very cool location looking over the port.
Great service and great food. Highly recommend ! Had the seafood platter which was the best I’ve tasted . Will return
Excellent seafood cooked to perfection.
