We went to the Dowry last Friday.

A very busy place. We booked a week in advance and still had to wait 30 minutes for our table.

The place is absolutely lovely inside.

The menu is eclectic with some very interesting dishes. There is a focus on Shetland seafood which was kind of wasted on us I am afraid.

We had a fantastic shared cold meat and cheese platter. Which although expensive has loads on it. Three different cold meats and Three different cheeses. Some lovely toasted bread and oatcakes and butter. Salad and a really interesting homemade pickle.

For mains the Wife had Lamb, which I hate to say was overcooked. I had an interesting dish which was Risotto wrapped in Filo pastry.

The mains don't come with accompaniments so have to be ordered separately. Although a portion of Garlic fried potatoes easily is enough for two.

Desert was a Ice cream and liquor dish which the wife loved.

All in all a great meal.

However I would like to see some Fish on the menu. I would have loved some grilled Mackerel or something.

Just been to Gurka Kitchen, Lerwick

 

I asked for something off the menu and they smiled politely, agreed and cooked probably the best prawn puri I have ever tasted (my most favourite food ever).

 

Thank you very much Gurka Kitchen chefs and staff.  :razz:

We went to the String last week and were very impressed. The food was delicious, the service was prompt and friendly and the atmosphere was laid back and a little 'shabby chic' (in a good way!).

 

Thoroughly recommended and we'll be back soon.

Last meal out we had was The Mid Brae Inn, and it was as good as I remember it when I ate there regularly. Highly recommended.

Had a set meal for 4 from Phusiam last week. Excellent value, enough to last 2 days.

£50 for 4, only thing was the soup was to spicy. Everything else was excellent.
