Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Kirkwall


31 Victoria St, Kirkwall KW15 1DN, UK – 01856 875687

My grandson had his 6th birthday party here. It was an amazing time they made their own pizzas and had great fun. The staff were amazing and really child friendly. I had my lunch there and the food was really good and very affordable. Great place

Stumbled upon this restaurant as a last resort but it was booked until 8 so we made reservation for the following night. Glad we did. Food and service were perfect. Too bad we’re leaving tomorrow. Could’ve eaten here every night.


14 Harbour St, Kirkwall KW15 1LE, UK – 01856 879293

Dinner in a downstairs booth, fully booked first night here booked for next night. Got harbour views but upstairs better. Food was fresh and delicious. My seafood dish was stunning. Dessert was delicious too. If in Orkney I highly recommend but be sure to book and get an upstairs table.

Lunch at a harbour side window upstairs was delightful on this gorgeous spring day. The staff were friendly and attentive and the meals were first class. My tofu and chickpea salad hit the spot. The local gin and ginger beer drink was a great accompaniment (although a wee but pricey) as were the side order of sweet potato chips (not pricey at all). Thanks for a great meal on our last day in the Orkney Isles!

Very nice meal. Clean if slightly dated interior but decent food and friendly service nonetheless. Recommend.

Had the chicken madras (my usual dish from my local curry house, so was used to the heat). These guys took it to another level. Not only was it tangy, but a lot hotter than my local, so just be aware if you order spicy, you get spicy. Staff were attentive, and on the ball, and next time I'm back in Orkney I definitely getting another curry.
