Description: Welcome to Fjara Cafe Bar, Shetland, ZE1. Fjara is locally owned and its main aim is to make customers feel at home. It has something for all parts of the day - from coffee in the morning and sandwiches at lunch right through to cocktails, burgers and more at night. Set on the small peninsula of land jutting out into Brewick bay, Fjara has amazing views for you to enjoy in all weathers and at all times of the day. It is a great wild life spot with plenty of opportunity to spot seals and otters in the surrounding. With a simple but effective menu, which changes seasonally, Fjara aims to bring different taste and cuisines to Shetland, getting the most from seasonal fruit and vegetables. All our baked goods are freshly made every morning on site, from our fantastic cheese and bacon bloomer to our sweet blueberry pancakes. Open from 10am to 10pm Sunday, 8am Monday to Thursday and 8am to midnight Friday and Saturday, Fjara provides a welcome escape from a hectic day at work, or a place to take the family and relax. Families, food lovers and drink aficionados are all very welcome in Lerwick's exclusive new cosy spot.

Good food good service half way through eating at quarter past twelve a member of staff put a notice on our table that the table was reserved at twelve thirty we should have been told this when we came in we had to get out by twelve thirty you need more communication with punters.

On the water so great views besides wonderful food! We had dinner here twice during our 5 nights in Lerwick as we loved the food and the menu. Local ingredients highlighted including seafood and beef. Nice wines offered as well as beers and gin specialty cocktails. Make reservations as it doesn’t appear you can always drop in and get a table for your evening meal.

Visited one evening for a coffee and returned first cup as insipid. Observing the pour considered under extracted to which the server responded by remaking with double shot, and clearly displaying no understanding or skill of how to make speciality coffees. Also milk simply heated and not stretched. Unfortunately no obvious management to raise dissatisfaction, nor when payed was there any question as to "how was everthing" which is basic hospitality service. Shame as from other reviews quality of coffee and service is not consistently poor.
