Solas Restaurant, Stornoway -
Fresh food, beautifully prepared and presented ...

Solas means 'light' in Gaelic and that's an excellent word to describe this modern brasserie style restaurant, completed in 2007.  The sophisticated light and sound system means that the ambience may be adjusted to suit  the time of day.

The restaurant is popular with both visitors and local residents, serving contemporary dishes that may best be described as a fusion of  traditional Scottish recipes, classic cuisine and world specialities.  Wines are specially selected to complement the food and offer the same combination of the highest possible quality and good value that we can achieve.

Fresh, Scottish ingredients are used extensively, including superb, local fish and seafood.

Hebridean langoustines and scallops are particularly good and well worth sampling, as are Lewis lamb, Angus beef, Leurbost mussels, local estate venison and other delicacies.  

Menus change regularly to reflect the seasons and availability of ingredients - there are links at the bottom of the page to example restaurant menus - note that these are typical menus and will change at from time to time - they are provided only to give you an idea of what to expect.

The restaurant team

The mark of a good head chef is that you don't notice a change in the food when it's his or her day off - Vivek is that kind of chef, inspiring his team to willingly achieve the high standards he sets for himself.

Born in Bedford, England, Vivek was educated at the school belonging to Hindustan Aeronautics in Nasik, India, prior to studying for the diploma of the Institute of Hotel Management and Catering at Hydrabad.

After training at the Ramada Hotel, Hydrabad and working in other Indian hotels, Vivek returned to the UK to gain more experience in European cuisine, in the kitchens of Thistle hotels and Holiday Inns, prior to spending time travelling the world cooking on cruise ships.

He joined  Solas restaurant in Stornoway and was promoted to head chef in 2008.  He and his team have a gift for taking quality local produce, cooking it to perfection and delighting our guests.
