The Foveran Restaurant


St. Ola, Kirkwall, Orkney, KW15 1SF

    This family-run ‘restaurant with rooms’ offers one of the best dining experiences in Orkney, in a relaxed and comfortable setting with stunning sea views across historic Scapa Flow. With a renowned restaurant and eight en-suite rooms, we attract both local people and visitors, who enjoy the quality of the food and warmth of the welcome.

    We’re really proud to have been four times winner of the Orkney Food & Drink ‘best evening meal’ award and the first ‘Orkney Masterchef 2014′ title. Please take a look at our sample menus and contact us if you have any queries or special requirements. We look forward to offering you a memorable Orcadian experience.

    It’s vital to know the origins of our produce, and we work closely with local suppliers to ensure we obtain the highest quality. Naturally our menu focuses on what Orkney does best: beef, lamb and seafood, as well as cheese and, of course, whisky. With long hours of daylight in summer, there’s a surprising range of fruit and vegetables grown locally. As well as supporting local producers, we are keen to retain Orkney’s culinary traditions.

    Paul Doull is recognised as one of Orkney’s top chefs, and his passion for fine food is shared by the rest of the kitchen team. They aim to provide a culinary experience to savour and remember – from your pre-dinner drinks in the comfortable lounge, to the following morning’s home-made breakfast.
