A small family run business serving local produce.
This felt very different to most times we have eaten out.very much a family run restaurant and conveys the warmth and intimacy of eating at somebody's house.so if you arrive early they don't chase you away but open up a bit early . Service throughout both efficient and delightful and the food consistently good predominantly seafood but good meat and veggie options .not normally a pudding person but save room for high quality sweets
Don't go to Orkney without visiting but book in advance as it is a small cosey dining room
Thanks to the owners

Two years ago, we thought the food to be fair. It has improved. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the meals that 12 of us had. The barman was cheerful and helpful, as was the waitress. We felt a real warm welcome.

A perfect spot a short distance from Stromness, and near to some ot the most interesting historic sites on Orkney. A great place with tasty refreshments.
The proprieter was very welcoming and chatty - gave excellent guidance on places to visit nearby. This was exactly what was needed for a new arrival on Orkney like myself.
Handy forecourt for those arriving by cycle.

We dined here twice while staying at the hotel. The food was middling without being terrible. The wine list was limited. The staff were attentive without being engaging. We dined lee where when we could. Are area for improvement in a hotel which we otherwise liked.

My wife and I visited the Orkney's as part of a day trip on our NC500 trip and found it to be one of the most compelling place we saw. Being so exposed to the elements and isolated from the Mainland is one thing, yet there is an incredible history here of occupation and productivity. One such example is the second most populated town of Stromness where my wife and I enjoyed an archetypal fish & chips lunch. The haddock was flakey and fresh, and the chips crispy. This was a fine way to sit back and enjoy some of the Islands local treats.

A small cafe with very willing and cheerful staff serving good food. I tried breakfast (toast & marmalade - thick slices and generous with the marmalade), morning coffee (could have done with a larger mug but the coffee is good), sunday lunch (fish pie as it should be), afternoon tea (after a wind-swept walk, Julia's is a wonderfully warm and cosy haven to return to). Sometimes service takes a little longer than us southern-folk are used to. Chill out a bit and be patient - unlike in the south where you're probably being ignored, in Orkney it just means that they're focusing on a doing each job well rather than rushing.

Tucked away up an alleyway you will find this excellent deli - knowledgeable and helpful staff are on hand and the top of the range food stuffs are of excellent quality. You must visit and enjoy!!

We had a so-so lunch of burgers. Was disappointed that the on tap selections of their beer is so limited on a daily basis. Really? You don't want to demonstrate the great beers in their best format - on draft - to every customer? Too bad.

The bakery itself is on the edge of Stromness, but there is a shop near the ferry terminal, and I think, one in Kirkwall. The Stromness shop has lots of great stuff, but for us what was ideal were the bacon rolls. We had a week in a flat opposite and the bakery opens at 7.30 selling sausage and bacon rolls and croissants. We did very little cooking.
