The food at this restaurant is as good as you would get anywhere and although not cheep is good value for money. We both had the specials, which were both excellent. The service was equally good. If you are thinking of eating out in Orkney this is the place to go but you will have to book as it was full every night we were there

We had one of the specials, which was scallops and monkfish cooked to perfection in a brandy and cream sauce. The desserts disappeared too fast but were also of the highest quality.The service and the food are perfect.

If I could offer one small criticism....it is that the wine list does not reflect the standard of the food.

Went here to celebrate an anniversary, was not disappointed. Service was very good and staff were helpful and not pushy. I if visiting a seafood restaurant always try the Cullen Skink and this was one of the very best I have tasted, the rest of the meal was as good as the starter. large enough portions so that too full to even consider a desert.

Ate here on Saturday night and couldn't fault a thing. The food was absolutely delicious. The crab gratin is the best I've ever had, followed this with the plaice and nice to see something different being done with veg and followed with the banoffed meringue. Mouth is watering just thinking about it again! There was a nice easy atmosphere in the restaurant although they were fully booked I saw no one being rushed. The 2 waiting staff were very knowledgeable and took time at every table offering assistance where it was needed and chatting.

One tip remember to book before you go

Price was reasonable as well

Will certainly be back next time I'm in Orkney

We enjoyed our meal at the Hamnavoe. The atmosphere is intimate and cosy, with a live fire burning, and the service is quick and friendly (helpful discussion about the current folk scene in Stromness). The food is imaginative without being too left-field. It was an experience to eat here, and one we'd gladly repeat.
