Thanks to Orkney's long and proud tradition of excellent and mouth-watering local produce, eating out across the region is always an experience to write home about, where the islands' superb raw materials are prepared with care and simplicity.

As well as award-winning restaurants and top quality eateries such as Lynnfield, Foveran and The Creel, don't miss the many cafés, tearooms and takeaways across Orkney including the Haff Yok on Westray and Julia's in Stromness.

For a real treat, sample the delicious afternoon teas complete with bannocks and rhubarb jam or head to a takeway and tuck into the freshest fish and chips. There's also plenty opportunity to enjoy that traditional Orkney standby, the patty. 

Orkney's raw ingredients, sourced from land and sea are prepared by chefs who use their expertise to bring out the intensity of the local flavours, includuing everything from North Ronaldsay lamb to succulent scallops, lobsters and crabs. In some of the more enterprising restaurants across the islands you may even have the opportunity to try witch and megrim flatfish or spoots, which are a type of razor clams.
