Had a lovely fry-up here (Increasing the calories to keep me warm in the howling wind outside!). Prices not too bad

I've eaten quite a few times at this family restaurant and I've never been disappointed. The sweets are exceptional especially if you like cheesecake!

Good for a quick food. Wide menu, different options in case of fishes or seafood, prompt attention. Nice place to see how the islanders live each day.

This is your more modern café. The food is good and the service is good also. There is plenty of dishes to choose from. Its clean, tidy and serves beer.

Fast food, but fresh. Everything is cooked fresh the service is fast, and the restaurant is clean. I recommend this for lunches, it's not for the romantic. More like a four stat Mc Donalds

A regular haunt of ours. Good food at good value with friendly staff. Stanley's only genuine "diner" experience and never fails to deliver. Kids love the selection of desserts.

We ate in Shorty's Diner 3 times whilst staying in Stanley. Always busy but service is very quick. You know it is always open and serving food. The food is adequate.

Had some great meals at Shorty's during our three-week visit to the Falklands. Good service, big menu, and the food is tasty and great value for money - well worth visiting.

It's what it says on the tin and it's great. Efficient and spotlessly clean. Friendly and helpful staff. We went several times, they remembered us and 'passed the time of day'. Broad menu that was consistently good. They're very accommodating too so you can swap rice for salad for example. It's not a restaurant, you shouldn't expect restaurant quality and... More
