Was it just a bad night for this place? We were a bit confused at first because we had been told that we had the last 6 p.m. reservation, but when we were ushered into the dining room it was nearly empty. We both ordered...More

The Lynnfield was recommended when we asked our hotel about seafood. They do have an excellent seafood platter available as both a first course or main. They were also very considerate about the fact that I can’t eat pepper and made accommodations quickly. However, one...More

Dining was a real experience. I suspect this is the best restaurant in Kirkwall. We also had breakfast here which also offered a wide range.
