This good restaurant with rooms is situated right on the seafront, behind the sea wall overlooking Scapa Flow. The simplicity of the dining room, with its stone floor and bare pine tables, belies thefact that it was a past winner of Scotland's Restaurant of the Year.
Ingredients might by simple, but they are handled with great skill.The menu follows the fish catch, more than 10 varieties might be offered during the course of a week. Smoked Haddock Soup or MoulesMarinière set the style for starters. Perhaps Seared Scallops with an Avocado and Pink Grapefruit Salsa, Roasted Wolf Fish with an Aubergine Casserole or Roasted Monkfish and Leeks with Ginger for mains.
Maybe Lemon Tart or Rhubarb Crumble to finish. Carnivores have a look-in, with the likes of Slow-baked Belly Pork or Pot-Roasted seaweed-fed Lamb shoulder with Lamb casserole.
