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.
A fantastic evening
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.
Beautiful surroundings, warm, attentive service, delicious delicate flavoured dishes....what's not to like! Thank you for another lovely evening....we'll be back!
Small, tight eating establishment. Curt on service, excellent on food.
Lovely meal and a great evening
Excellent. Food and exceptionally nice staff
Great food, lovely people, impeccable service... a wonderful way to end our holiday.
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.
As always another gastronomic experience. Thank you Mary and Jim and all your team
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.
A amazing meal in a fantastic setting prepared and served by wonderful people. Thank you for making our anniversary very very special. See you next year for the 50th and most likely in-between.
We came from Hamburg to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary in the Captain's Galley. It's a great little restaurant, the service, the food, the location: Everything is perfect! Thank you, we will return!
Wonderful food, excellent service in marvellous surroundings. Couldn’t fault it
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.
We had a brilliant night and the food was fantastic. Visit if you can.
I had the seafood salad plate. It was terrific -- best herring I've had in ages. Thank you for a memorable meal.
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
Jim and Mary were fantastic hosts, right from opening the door to the restaurant. Beautiful food and perfectly presented. Be back soon!
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.
A fabulous night great food and service with a relaxed atmosphere we will be returning to work are way through the menu love everything about this place and the owners
Really excellent evening with lovely food.
Fantastic food and experience.
