The Foveran Restaurant


St. Ola, Kirkwall, Orkney, KW15 1SF

    Welcome to The Foveran 

    This family-run restaurant boasts magnificent panoramic sea views over historic Scapa Flow and the southern Orkney isles, as does the lounge area, where you can relax and enjoy a pre-or after-dinner drink.

    The sample menu gives a portrayal of how local produce is presented with flair and originality by our expert chefs Paul and Roddy. Their passion is shared with the rest of the kitchen team, with one member providing homegrown herbs and free range eggs. They work closely with local suppliers and fishermen to ensure only the best ingredients find their way onto the plate. Taking advantage of seasonal availability, and the abundance of life in the clean waters that surround the islands, superb seafood features strongly on the menu along with prime beef and lamb from Orkney's fertile and plentiful farmlands.

    Paul is keen to preserve local culinary traditions. His 'bere bunno' or bannock uses local stone-ground beremeal flour, and is extremely popular with tourists and locals alike.

    The unique flavour of Highland Park whisky enriches a number of Paul's dishes, such as his prime Orkney fillet steak with haggis and creamy Highland Park sauce.

    To complement the menu, we offer a wide range of carefully selected wines, some of the best local and highland malt whiskies, and a full range of liqueurs.

    At the Foveran, you can enjoy the finest Orkney produce in a relaxed and comfortable setting. Please contact us for further information about seasonal specials and bookings.

    The awards we have received reflect the high standards we maintain in terms of food, ambience and service. Paul and his team will ensure you are treated to a meal to remember and true Orcadian hospitality.
