We went to the Scalloway Hotel last night for a family birthday meal. What a gastronomic delight from beginning to end. Each dish was beautifully presented, and delicious. We all truly enjoyed our meal. The service was excellent, the ambiance great. Can't wait to go back.....

The restaurant certainly lives up to the accolades that have been heaped on it. The food is imaginative and freshly prepared to order. There is a sensible Wine List, or some excellent house wines to order by the glass. The staff are the stars, young and enthusiastic about what they are doing, nothing is too much trouble; no wonder the... More

We booked dinner thinking we would be having pub fish and chips ( nothing wrong with that) However we were in for an unexpected treat. The food in presentation and taste was more Masterchef than pub grub. We had starters, mains and shared a pudding. There is a pleasing choice and not too many choices on the menu - just... More

I only went having arrived on Shetland this morning as a result of looking on Trip Advisor for somewhere to eat lunchtime. What a wonderful decision that was! First impressions on the hotel weren't good, front had been accidentally locked and we couldn't get in. Looked all around it and nearly went somewhere else, glad we didn't. Starters consists of...

Fantastic fresh fish and other local produce. There are two different menus, one for the bar-dinner and another for more fine-dining, in the restaurant. In my opinion, the food on the bar menu is just as nice, if not nicer than the restaurant. The atmosphere and decor in the bar is a lot better (decor in the restaurant is a... More

Great food! We were driving back to Lerwick and found this hotel by accident. It had a bar with food or a dining room for more formal dinners. It has won some awards for food as posted in their lobby. I concur.

Went for a lunch with a friend on Sunday. For a starter we had seafood platter with lovely local smoked scallops and crab in the small jar. Main course I got freshly caught that morning half of lobster with garlic butter young potatoes and salad. Presentation and quality of food was amazing! Very friendly and helpful staff. Good value for... More

We had an evening meal in the lounge bar after a drive north and before driving back to Bigton. Choice of food from bar and dining room menus. Service was good, friendly and we didn't have to wait long for our meal. Parking available opposite hotel.
