Banks of Orkney
COVID-19 update: Open from late May 2021
11.00 to 16.00 Sunday to Friday. Table bookings only.
Located at the southern tip of Orkney, this is a modern build restaurant with full depth glass on three sides which enjoys unrivalled 180 degree panoramic views across the Pentland Firth to Scotland.
The sea views from every table are simply amazing. Visitors can sit in comfort, enjoy the breath taking views and choose something delicious to eat as the ships go by. The bistro offers an impressive fresh seafood menu and much more, all locally and sustainably sourced. In fact lobsters and crabs are so fresh as they are brought ashore by local fishermen only minutes away at Burwick harbour. There are hand dived scallops from the waters around Orkney, langoustines from Scapa Flow and salmon, which is farmed in Orkney. Wherever possible we use seasonal vegetables and potatoes from a farm in South Ronaldsay.
There is indoor and outdoor seating as well as a Dining Pod. The Dining Pod seats up to 8 people and there is an exclusive six course tasting menu. All the food we sell is made by our chefs in our own kitchen including all desserts, cakes and bread rolls. Carole & Hamish who own and run this pride themselves on creating great food, simply. They let the freshness of the product speak for itself. Food is served all day.
